    Quality of goldwing rc 3d/ sport planes

    Does anyone have any experience with Goldwing rc airplanes, I'm getting a 26cc gasser and I want to put it in a Extra 260 they have on General Hobby. I just want to know if there any major problems with them. Thanks

    They gave us an MXS-R for a prize last year, the guy that built it was pretty happy with it, and I flew it several times and it flew well.

    I dont believe gw have a 260. Check if its a 300lp or 330sc.

    GW are great fliers albeit a bit fragile. You will need to reinforce typical areas & go over the fuse with CA. The sheeting is particularly delicate

    Preflight check is optional , picking up the pieces is consequential

    Ok, thanks guys, I was hoping to get more comments but its a lesser known company, so that makes sense. I will strengthen it up, I'm putting a gasser on it so I'm guessing it was going to need it .

    I have a GW 300LP with a 30cc gas engine. The main thing is to beef up what needs beefing up Pretty much as you would do with any plane. As Ameyam stated they are a bit fragile and may need some reinforcing. I really like mine as it is a great flyer and takes a decent beating. I have not had to buy any parts yet and that part concerns me as there are many horror stories about GW parts.
