Hangar 9 Hanger 9 Alpha 40 DSM2 Ready-To-Fly Trainer
Purchased plane on Saturday and Received it on Wednesday (Amain you're the best) anyway after opening the box I found that everything was packaged perfectly and everything was there I went over the instructions and it looked pretty easy to assemble, Assembley went very well and had it all together in about an hour, been charging batteries all day and headed to the field in the morning....... Also just to let you all know, everything is included in this kit Radio System, batteries, charger, and Servo's and they are already installed. This plane is a steal at $300.00 add fuel and fly.

This plane looks like it was covered by a 3 year old. I've never seen such a poor job. What a disappointment.
