Phase 3 Phoenix II EPP Glider Kit w/BL Motor & Prop

Phase 3 Phoenix II EPP Glider Kit w/BL Motor & Prop

Product Review (submitted on May 4, 2011):
I purchased the kit version expecting to have some instruction as to the install of the servos, size, power etc, the manual that comes with the plane is the one for the version that has everything installed so there is no mention of any of the finer points of doing the kit version at all. I have had pretty good luck so far doing it on my own, but would not recommend this to anyone that has no previous building experience. If you are going to sell a kit, it needs to have a manual for a KIT!
I think the plane will actually be a nice one, but the low star rating is for falling down badly on the manual for this kit version, so if you are new to RC, either buy the bind and fly or the complete, do not buy this kit.
I wish this plane was offered as a receiver ready version as I do not use Airtronics and would have had to buy the the receiver version and throw the receiver away, some companies, such as Spectrum, offer lots of bind and fly versions also that do someone no good if they fly a different transmitter.
