I want to say, this is a great guy to work with, I ordered mine and received it yesterday and this is a nice looking ARF. Looking forward to test fly this weekend. Thank you. I will probably order the other colors to go with it. Love the Gee Bee's.

Again Thank you for the great service and product.
