Durafly™ SE5a 1030mm (PNF) (US Warehouse)

Durafly™ SE5a 1030mm (PNF) (US Warehouse)

The SE5a was responsible, along with the Sopwith Camel for winning back and retaining allied air superiority from mid 1917, until the end of the Great War. It was a stable aircraft, making it an excellent gun platform, it was faster than most allied fighters, including the Spad and more importantly, it was faster than anything flown by German fighter pilots. Although available in much smaller numbers than the Camel, the SE5a was the mount of many famous aces, including Albert Ball VC, James McCuddon & Edward Mannock, it was truly a classic fighter aircraft.

The superb Durafly® ™ SE5a is a high quality and beautifully detailed Plug and fly model that is made from tough EPO foam, good quality servo's are pre-fitted throughout, as is the ESC and powerful brushless outunner motor. The SE5a is not difficult to assemble and so will be fairly fast to get into the air, that said, with a model this nice, it really is worth taking your time! As well as looking fantastic, this model is built to last and features carbon re-enforced flying surfaces, steel re-enforced landing gear, proper rubber tyres, and so on.

At 1030mm wingspan, the Durafly® ™ SE5a has loads of presense in the air and on the ground, the high quality finish and level of detail really finish off this amazing model which flies every bit as good as it looks. There is stacks of power for aerobatics, and tons of thrust from the purpose made scale prop for cruising at scale speed, combine all that prop wash with the nicely balanced control surfaces and you have a model the handles well and retains it poise, no matter how slowly it is flown. The Durafly® ™ range is top quality in every respect and this stunning SE5a is no different, so time to don your flying helmet, goggles & silk scarf and go on the dawn patrol!

HZ is $199.99...HK is $172.86 HZ looks comical especially the pilot HK looks more realistic even the pilot.... I do not have neither one, cant say how they fly, but if Price and looks matter HK is far better. Just my observation

HZ had one cheaper at one point. The pilot is odd, both have good and bad .As these have been out awhile looks like they may go away soon.

For those needing the often out of stock prop shaft. Good news! The one for the T-28 works just fine and is usually in stock. PRODUCT ID: 9142000079 Only difference is the washer diameter which is too big to fit in the recessed prop hub. But you won't be needing that anyway as it's usually just the shaft itself that gets bent in a crash.

I was trying to decide on the Durafly or ******** SE5. I was almost ready to buy this one until I compared the price. Horizon Hobby is selling the PZ version for $140 with free shipping. No Contest!

Each to there own i guess but i have both models and i'd have to say the Durafly one has a lot more scale features than the HH/PZ one IMHO,but that's just me,so if scale features don't rock your boat go for the lesser one out of the two which is the HH/PZ one.

I agree the Durafly SE5a is a nice looking plane...but not a model of a WW I vintage plane. I just didn't think the extra "features" were worth the additional $70. The PZ model is a great flyer, BTW.

look guys i live in us and i have checked the frieht costs of exactly same plane from same the cities are very close and hk has always has a higher price so you tell me why same plane same shipping address 25 hk 75 why huuuummmm could hk be adding a little handling cost just back ship product and you will see huge difference so next time you think the freight is too high you should check it yourself or quit complaining about it

A joy. A true joy. Flies fast or flies slow (scale). A fairly heavy plane, but sweet in the air, nimble, maneuverable, responsive, and what a beautiful profile. Critics abound, but let them stop griping about small things and put this sweetheart in the air. Only critique I have is that, as a platinum member, I see the customer service and customer care eroding with HK. I'm truly worried that they are growing too big and forgetting who their customers are. We're fun'loving hobbiests, and love our toys. This is not the kind of business where you play hardball and run me off over $10 issues. I love HK products. But any more poor customer service and I'll force myself, out of conscience, to shop elsewhere. That would truly hurt me, but someone has to take a stand. HK - great products, but stop fighting me on every issue. At least act like you care, and maybe admit that the problem is your mistake... every once in a while.

This plane flys great. Plenty of power and very easy to put together. It has nice details built in and looks very good compared to some of the others that are on the market. The only issue I have is that you can't get replacement parts. I have had mine for about two months and I'm still waiting for the new props to come in. I don't need it yet but if I do break it, I will not be able to fly it.... Can't understand what the hold up is. Other than that, this is a great plane.

It flies very well. Battery options are limited by battery compartment size. Only two problems assembling the airplane. The rudder was way out of adjustment which required the wing removal. The supplied wires for stabalizer were made to an incorrect length. I had to custom make these wires.

I want this plane but, why must I pay $35 shipping and do a customs declaration for something coming from USA warehouse to a Michigan address? HZ SE-5a is $185 w/ free shipping. Please explain.
