Ok Guys here goes nothing.
Philip @ PW-RC
is the fellow who you should contact in regard to these models.
Philip has been very helpful to me in the past obtaining models that would otherwise never have had made it to the USA.
From what I am to understand the first batch of models will NOT be RTR. Rather it will be the airframe and motor only. That's really good news for guys like myself who have the gear set aside already. My hope is the fuse will not be joined and we can place the servos as we wish.
For the guys who need parts Philip stocks soup to nuts what you need to get this bird in the air.
Best of all in the past Philip has been very fair in his shipping quotes. I can't see why HC feels this model costs 40-60 USD. Ill bet Philip does us right on shipping folks.
So that's where we are. Philip is awaiting his first batch of kits as I type this. If you want one, I advise you contact him ASAP.
P.S. Yes, you can contact AXN. They have no problem selling to whomever. That said the Min purchase is 10 Cartons <60 pieces> so I hope you crash an awful lot!
