Yep. Shipping is always a factor. On some sites (like Giantshark.co.uk) I can keep lots of things in my shopping cart ready for the next order, then decide which ones to actually buy. On HobbyKings site that doesn't work because they keep emptying it. There's the wish lists, but it's not the same.

I've used a few of that size wheels. There are three on my Parkzone Trojan, which works well. I had a pair on my 1.3m Ultrafly Decathlon until recently, but decided to switch it to FunCub wheels. I'll be putting some on my PA Ultimate, when I finally get round to building it, and probably my Seagull PC-9 (also still in kit form).

3" is a good size for a grass field, for anything but a very small plane. I like the 5" FunCub ones too, but there aren't many medium sized planes that can get away with wheels that big.

I'm now wondering if I used the 32mm block or the 40mm one. They do seem to be the same ones though... I'll go and measure it.
