Re: phoenix a330-200 Pro's and Con's?

Re: Phoenix SQ 340-500 improved gear?

The SQ is my first Phoenix A345 as well, and it's excellent. Got the SQ A330 as well... The only thing that irks me is that they can never keep the colours for SQ models consistent.

As far as QC goes, are you talking about the paint colours? The cheatlines on Phoenix SQ models are almost always different. This looks totally different to my 77W and A380, but I still love it. :D
