Regarding the SG Drone, I've got one and am very pleased. The build quality is excellent and the bird flies well. Support is excellent. Emails are promptly answered and the bird is shipped on the promised date. Spare parts are readily available. Be sure and order the glide controller if you get one. It also works as advertised and makes the bird easier to fly.....
I ordered the bird on July 14 and it was delivered August 1. Yovi's communication was excellent and I was kept well informed of progress. The Bird was carefully packaged and arrived in excellent condition....I'm very impressed with the quality of construction. It is really a work of art. I ordered it with the Glide Lock option which came pre-installed except for the hall effect magnet. Here's what came in the package.....

Had my first full flight today! Besides attracting the local Hawk populace, kids from all over showed up by the end of the 8 or so minutes I was up. I really enjoyed flying it and may have garnered a few, new young fliers for our local club. WIn WIn!
Too bad the wind is scheduled to really blow this weekend. I was hoping to get a number of flights in tomorrow...Good job Yovio - Thanks!

I paid on the 13th of July. The bird was finished a week later. I could have gotten it earlier but I wanted a special color. It shipped on the 23rd of July and I picked it up on the 30th. It may have come in two days earlier but my Post Office annex is closed on Saturday. The supplied tracking number was very accurate.
I e-mailed A.L in Singapore on August 26, he mailed the parts on the 27th and they arrived in my mailbox September 6. It would have been sooner but just my luck they hit the USA the day before the Labor Day holiday. Whatever, that's good service on parts and I certainly compliment A.L for quick service. Richard .S

If anyone is going to purchase an Ornithopter from Singapore RC Drone, here's what to expect. As they have stated assembly is about two weeks or more if there are problems. Delivery from Singapore to Houston, Texas, took three weeks since the package has to go though customs. The package did arrive kind of beat up, but packaging was done properly to protect the bird. Bird and materials look like first quality. I'm very pleased with the product now I just have to do the little bit of assembly and a test flight.

I just received my orni from SG drones. Awesome quality kit. A little bit smaller than a Lazy Hawk. The quality is well worth the additional cost of anything offered in the States. Noticeable differences are the easily removable ferrules, improved stitching, gorgeous CF (if you like that sort of thing) and selection of proper hardware used throughout. Best part is, you actually DO receive it per their posted timeline. Anyone on the fence about ordering one of these, rest assured it is a great offering.
