I think that's the Cyber Monday week sale price, but it was the Black Friday price as well. I bought an ARF with e-tracts on sale and received it today. Took a quick look at it before handing it over to my wife to wrap up for Christmas.
Nice kit! I'm very impressed... I've been away from the hobby for a while and it seems that ARF technology has come a long ways, what with the electric retracts and flaps and electronics.
Slight damage to the tail from shifting around in the box, but the retracts look good and the overall kit is very nice. Can't wait to get it out on Christmas and start painting/assembling. I did run the motors up just for grins and will have to do some work balancing them & sealing the nacelles, but the retracts cycled great and the servos seem like they'll be good. Has anyone installed exhaust cones on this jet?
I'm planning on flaps and a color scheme something along these lines: http://www.airliners.net/search/phot...nct_entry=true
