But don't give up so easy on it ... Try some of PBusardo's videos, I am pretty sure that he reviewed the Ithaka, and I know for those who have gotten it down, they love it.
That is the thing with RBA's in general, is that they are more challenging, even as some are easier than others, like the Kayfun. Aside from looks, it is more popular than the Ithaka because it is easier to build.
I really want a Taifun, I think my Caravela needs it ... I am prolly gonna put up my new JM mod kit in the classies, and put the money towards the Taifun GT. If some reason you end up not liking that one as well and want to sell it, PM ME!!!
And Crocky I am convinced that you now exist only to make me jealous! ... I wished you lived closer to me, because trust, I would be ALL UP in yo gear collection! ... although your GF might have a problem with that
