    Nice plane and nice job but stop calling them landing gears…it’s landing
    gear, singular. Colectively the 3 pieces make one unit called the landing
    gear or undercarriage. thanks.

      “We will flip the landing gear switch and set up for landing here. Gear’s
      down.”
      So that means gear is down. Not plural.

      +68funbun We had a major shift in management within these last 2 years
      which means a change in product quality and support for the better. A lot
      of people seem to agree that HSD is setting the bar higher, and this
      revamped 1600mm A-1 Skyraider is no exception. I have seen large amounts of
      positive feedback from the new HSD releases such as this model and others
      like the 105mm Super Viper – pilots are pleased! If you have any additional
      questions, send us an e-mail message or a text. More info on how to reach
      us here: http://www.bananahobby.com/support.htm. -Alex

      +Banana Hobby the only reason I say this is because my friend got a plane
      from you one year ago and it came with the wrong receiver I can understand
      maybe a faulty part hear and there but to send the wrong receiver the most
      essential part to flying a plane is just plain bad. Also he has had to go
      through a hassle with your consumer support

      +68funbun Sorry to hear that. Sometimes things can slip through the cracks
      due to simple human error, but I’d be happy to look into possible solutions
      if your friend is still open for the idea. I understand it’s been some time
      now but we’d be glad to work something out. If you have the first 5 digits
      of his order number I can personally give him a call. Thanks for
      responding! -Alex
