FMS are much better then Dynam .Dynam are cheap but fly really well but there servo ,retracts and esc can be a problem .If you want a really good scale foamy then there is only one .Go for Freewing /Flightline Look up "Motion R C Europe or RC Castle .They are the top foamy you will see ,really scale looking and fly great

IMO FMS are now the leaders in terms of build quality and finish for foamies. Freewing used to be but are now playing catch up. Dynam are quite a bit behind these other 2.

Freewing and Flightline are the same company .Freewing do mainly E D F (Jets ) while Flightline do warbirds .Also Sussex Models do Freewing/Flightline kits

That is an interesting point Ron .I have always brought Freewing kits I know FMS have up their game .Might have to take a look at FMS then .I am thinking about the Freewing Hawk but reading your bit maybe I should look at the FMS Hawk before I buy one

One way to ensure the model you fly is built well is to build it yourself.........

agreed percy,i love building,ive never scratch built a war bird,the painting of the colour schemes would be rather chalenging,im used to just covering them,mainly solartex.I may give it some thought though,i do get rather bored this time of year.

FMS or Freewing, depends if you are after a specific type of aircraft. I have one of each; Freeewing Mustang repainted and an FMS Yak 130 repainted too. Both fly well, look good and were what I’d hoped they’d be.

For the more special aircraft I agree you have to build them yourself and that is where I have had the most satisfaction, especially the WW1 aircraft where there is a very limited foamie offering.

@ Rocker - if you’re after the Hawk, check out the u/c on both of them, I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the quality of the FMS ones. It’s areas like this, plus the surface finish where FMS have upped their game.
