    Overall was pleased with the quality of the model. Was disappointed there was no spinning propeller, no landing gear option & the antenna was in crooked.

        Hellcat

        I have ordered 6 aircraft from AirModels, in the past few months and have been VERY pleased with not only the quality of the product but also the quality of their customer service. Two of my orders arrived damaged in shipping, and, true to their word, they replaced them expeditiously and apologetically. I firmly have plans to order several more models in the next few months.
