[quote]ORIGINAL: Jacobs Jasta 7 Don't tell me these discontinued planes don't sell, the day they discontinued the Hanger 9 Camel and Fokker DVII a month later they were completely sold out everywhere! It's BS! People have been pestering Greatplanes to bring back the 60 Fokker Dr1 for about 10 years, and what did they come out with? A Stuka that hardly anyone wanted because ESM had a much better version! Then they discontinued the Seawind, and Gee Bee for electric foamie versions. What is disrespectful is the fact Hanger 9 replaced the DVII and Camel for a bunch of park flyer foamies as well! When they just discontinued the Camel and DVII, I got on the horn real fast to Horizon, all they said was, ''Thank you for your interest and we will keep it in our records, however we are coming out with replacement aircraft that you might enjoy in its place.'' I DON'T LIKE FOAM SCALE PARKFLYERS YOU IDIOT CHEAP BAST@RDS- AND NO, I DON'T LIKE THEM!!! There, I said it here and not to them, that's how I feel. Now I feel a little better, not by much though. Remember people China isn't our friend here in the States, they will screw most of us before we even know we are getting screwed. That's why I'm getting very, very interested in kit building again. I'm getting sooo tired of giving my money to China, and not getting support for parts etc. when China pulls the plug. Time to go green, buy electric- well screw you! Pete [/quote] I agree 100% with the last paragraph, and it has been my experience for the last two years: I have some wonderful kit-built models from 100% American companies such as Dumas, Mountain Models and Manzano, and I must say that I now go out of my way to avoid Chinese goods.

RE: Lanier ARFs and Kits - Fire Sale at Tower Hobbies
I have the D VII and it's a very beautiful plane and fun to fly. DO NOT screw the motor directly into the motor mount unless (1) you reinforce it with epoxy or (2) use machine screws and bolts or (3) blind nuts and screws. The motor mount is quite weak. But, be sure to mount the motor with the shaft in the hole provided or as a guide; otherwise, you will miss the thrust line. If you want more information or photos, just ask.
