With Robbe kits the fittings kits are usually all the deck fittings, vents, ladders, handrails etc you need to complete the kit. You really need this unless you intend to make everything yourself.

The power sets consist of the correct Robbe motors, couplings, prop shafts, and props. Robbe motors are very good and normally fairly low drain.

What Dicky has said is spot on having built one of these myself and now sold it BIG MISTAKE.
The motors that Robbie supply in the power set are good,but if I was to build another I would definatly use a pair of MMB motors instead of the robbie ones

See link above for MMB, the main difference is two fold more power than the robbie and definatly without a doubt less power hungry,so more running time.Physically they are more or less the same size so fitting would not be problem
