Hi

I have a spare OS BGX that's looking for a home and was thinking about this model & possibly refitting it with Eflite 90-120 retracts

Does anyone have one of these and how does it go together / fly?

Thanks

Jon

Hi Jon, It looks a beauty from what I can see of it on-line. I too would be interested to know how it goes together/flies so if there is anyone out there with one please let us know what you think. Cheers.

Hi Nev

Yeah the Youtube videos look pretty good but it seems that this is not a model that is selling 'like hot cakes'...

I'm still mulling it over and trying to compare it to one of the larger Sebart models that can be converted to ic....love those

Hi Jon,

Perhapes you've already seen it, but, there is a artical by Alex Whittaker on the BH Seafury in the June 2012 issue of RCM&E.

Thanks Nev

I had forgotten although I had read it when the mag came out - just revisited it in the archives and it is certainly making me think long and hard.....

I wouldn't have too many worries since you are not using BH retracts. I had a black horse p40 which had retracts made of butter. Completely ruined the plane and did knock my confidence in a brand which I had bought several of before.

They do seem to be able to put together a lot of airframe for not a lot of money. However I might have a concern about this with this specific model. It's not cheap- I might be concerned that some of their budget choices had made it into an expensive model. Having said that (retracts excepted) the p40 was a very solid plane and I liked it a lot. If it is possible to actually see one before buying I think that might be a good idea.
