Hosed by the Nitromodels this time :-(

Yipes, I got burned bad by Nitro.

$156 shipped, with nothing but the 'kit'.

I didn't read the details that it didn't come as their usual ARF... My fault for sure, but it doesn't make it any easier to swallow. :-(

And if you try to cancel the order, the charge you a restocking fee plus the shipping both directions...close to $100 I'm figuring.

As far as what I'm going to motor it with, likely it will be something minium with a gear box since it will be only electric launch.

My 147" molded unlimited ship for ALES weighs in at 84ozs and goes up to 200m twice on a 1800mah 3 cell, using a geared motor from Tower $105 and a 50amp speed controller I picked up for $20 (Mystery brand).

The props and hub are what kills price wize, they add up to $100 shipped.

Keep us posted on your flights please!
Thanks
Gordy
