Superb re-creation of the C-130 with scale retractable landing gear and synchronised doors, flaps, operational cargo bay door and high intensity lights all round. Action from my first two flights after showing the kit itself before assembly.

Exploring the slow flight characteristics of this model after a lot of feedback suggesting it 'flies like a rocket'. Just proves how wrong folks can be!

Yes impressively slow for its size and level of scale detail (love the props!) but still not what I would call a really slow 'scale' speed. ;)

Interesting model, but it is not yet listed on the HK site, so no idea of the price.
I suspect I'd soon get bored with it, though, as it doesn't do much but fly round in circles.
I hope the retracts are a LOT more robust than many, or the owner will spend more time repairing/replacing bent links and doors than they will flying the thing.
And I noted that the grey paint was already flaking off the surround of the side hatch! (Just like on my Tundra).

if you are calm and collected when all about you are going berserk - you've missed something important!

Onboard 360 panoramic action. Play the video and use your mouse to change the view!

Some aerobatics on this latest flight ending with some tight low level flying and a short landing. Awesome aircraft.
