    I love the look of this plane and by the video looks like it has very stable flight characteristics. Does HL sell this as a plug-n-play version as well?

    Sorry, it's only a RTF, but it's no problem to put your own radio gear into it.

    I also would like to have one of these as plug and play - I have about 7 of the transmitters that come with this and the Decathlon RTF - Is there a chance to purchase only the airplane?

    I am sorry but we do not have this model as an airframe version.
    We only have this model as a RTF.

    I am looking to buy this awesome plane but wanted to know what transmitter it came with? Is this a good plane for a mid level flyer? Thanks

    Yes it would make a good mid level aircraft for the person that has flown aileron aircraft. The radio is a good 4 channel 2.4 ghz radio with receiver, however if you have your own radio you can certainly use it in this plane as well.

    It only comes as a RTF plane but it flies just fine with the installed equipment. The video of the plane flying is always done with existing equipment in the RTF versions.

    I have a Waco thats been setting up since 2008 and I got it out the other day to try to fly it. Charged the battery up but cant get much of a response from the plane when it is all powered up. If i remember correctly when you connect the battery the motor is supposed to beep but it doesn't even do that now. I have gotten the servos to chatter a little bit but they dont move in response to the controls. Any ideas as to what could be wrong.? The battery checks out good reading around 12 v. It is a 72 mHz radio.

    Make sure the esc is connected, tightly. Have you left the battery connected at one point in the plane, or have forgotten to disconnect it at some point. It sounds as though the esc has gone bad, but can't tell for sure. If you have another esc that you can plug in, try it and see if things begin to work.

    Hope this helps,
