    Interestingly, and related, I read in another thread someone saying that up to 20% of higher end ukes (I don't remember how "high end" was defined in that context) did not meet standards and needed...

    Having to re-build (or bonfire) 1/3rd of the instruments does not seem sustainable from the standpoint of a business model, but maybe the profit margin is so high that it works out in the long run.

    Wow -- that is a lot of rejects! What happens to all of those instruments that get sent back to the distributor?

    Enya EUC-X1M has gotten a lot of favorable comments, is $50 including a nice gig bag and some other accessories, and the neck bolts on and off. Might be worth a look.

    Good idea. I didn't realize that "musical instrument policies" existed.

    Did you encounter any questions from the airline or requests to gate check the bag, as I am guessing that its length exceeds the "maximum dimension" allowable for carry ons which I think is 20". ...

    Thanks for the additional comments! I thought that I read somewhere that the tuners on the Flight were suboptimal, but I can't remember where I came across that (or if I was getting it confused with...

    First tuner I bought was a D'Addario because I liked the small profile. It would not give a reading for the A string. Returned it and bought a Snark. It would not give a reading on any string. ...

    jer, thank you so much for taking the time to post your experience. Yours is the kind of detailed comparison that I was hoping to find. I listened to an online comparison of the two and I think the...

    Thanks for taking time to comment! You have great "ukulele cred" with me since I find Boot Camp so helpful thus your opinion matters.

    That might be the problem that I read about, only I mis-remembered it as being a tuner problem instead of a bridge problem.

    Seems like the brittle plastic bridge and wooden top would give a...

    Per the video, I would rank the sound of the Flight above that of the OU.

    She says that the intonation and playability of the OU is better than the Flight.

    I didn't hear her comment about build...

    Thanks! Yes, I have heard that the Flight compares well to the Flea for a lot less money.

    Tone aside, would you still give the nod to the Flight? Or would you say that the build quality,...

    I've read a number of reviews of these instruments, and would like to hear from those familiar with both how they stack up against one another as far as build quality, quality of the tuners,...

    Please post your impressions when you get it. I'm considering the exact same model (green soprano) as a gift.
