It's not for sale, if they don't want to have it shipped back at their cost .
I will be keeping it.:=}


For what it's worth, when balancing I found that using baking soda with thick CA and little instant cure works great.
Adds weight more and sticks great, I've use this to fix broken plastic and it works.

The two I bought a few months back were the individual blades (pre-assembled, of course). Not sure if they have gone to the one-piece 12 blade in the interim.

I ordered mine around 6 p.m. Eastern time Friday and it was in Ohio Saturday and UPS left it there until 4 A.M. today and then it was delivered at around 2 p.m. today.


Hey sjw985 :
Thanks for your reply, in one pictures it looks like a one piece but then another looks like it 12 pieces.

Good Evening Everyone :=}
I would like to know if using a 4 cell and a 2 cell in seriesl is hard on the packs ?
I read somewhere along time ago , that it caused more cell inbalance, but I had no intention back then on using them in series.
But if not , it would allow me to use the 4 cell pack in my Stryker.

I can't sleep I'm too excited about my jet and I got called for a flight tomorrow. Flying a beech baron in the morning! I was supposed to work on a citation 550 but flights take priority! When I land I'm coming straight home with a fresh bottle of epoxy and getting started!

I never looked at mine. It arrived preassembled last week (ordered late Dec 2012) and ready to drop in. Maybe those who bought it earlier had to assemble it.

And I already have a problem. For one thing I apparently changed my programmed F-18 over time of not having one and my L/H TV servo is doing some crazy sh*t. Going to start a new profile with mixes and see if that helps. When the plane is on the L/H servo goes crazy randomly. It will sit there and be fine but once I move the stick up or down once it goes back to neutral it starts moving on its own up and down for whatever reason. It will be still for a minute then all the sudden it will go nuts again lol. Its no big deal since I have plenty of hitech servos laying around just annoying. Everything else seems to work fine.
