    I bought a Flight TUS50 from Amazon. When it arrived, the bridge had shattered where the G string attaches. At least one other person here on UU has posted about a broken bridge on a Flight uke. I am not impressed with the brittle plastic they're using. This may be one of those situations where you get what you pay for.

    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 quality. It seems like I read something about problems with the Flight tuners, but I can't remember where.

    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 durability edge to the OU.

    Since I have a Flight, I want to weigh in that I have had zero issues. Mine has a compensated saddle, so intonation is great.

    There has been a recent change to the Flight tus with a different saddle arrangement apparently they had some problems with the original my tus has a plastic neck and fret board and the paint has started to wear on the frets ,it sounds good to my ears but others have changed the strings .

    Thanks! The Flight certainly seems to be the most bang for the buck.
