Your welcome!

I agree, I personally am very excited about all the planes they have. Escpecially the warbirds since I already have one of my own(Zero). A friend of mine ordered the F4U so we can have mock dog fights.

I couldn't agree with you more! I fly $2500 helis and I get just as much or more joy out of flying a $20 warbird at 20mph.

Exactly, and if / when something does go wrong, it doesn't cost you an arm and a leg.

No harm. All is well, I just can't wait to have a supply of these.

Funny.... I just found that one I bought two or three years ago and never built. I bought S60's and a 3s1p 540 for it then never figured out what to do about motor/esc. Guessing the stock stuff is a no no. What did everyone end up doing for power?

Has anyone received a tracking number or product from them yet? I know it's early to have received anything with the holiday and all, but tracking numbers would be nice.

There are just so many scammers online these days. I can see the headlines now. "RC enthusiasts duped for tens of thousands in largest internet scam of 09!"

All the Classic Warbirds are on back order. First shipment sold out quickly.

There is a glitch with the website and nobody is getting a notice about the back order.

We still have some growing pains to deal with, but you will get your order, I assure you.

A few dozen random UPS tracking numbers posted on this thread would go a long way to show that product is shipping.

Don't get me wrong. I ordered a few of them myself. It's just that you guys have no seller history, and red flags are continuing to go up.

I suspect that you guys are missing out on more sales because of this.

At least some of you fella's can get on the website...

I have found a Eu based website / company that has the Cox versions still listed, but haven't checked if they still actually have them all in stock.

It's been covered earlier in this thread and the old Cox thread, the guru's who have done this website seemed to have limited access to only those who reside in the USA.

TEX has said he is trying to get them to get their sh*t together so others around the world can access it as well.

Tex.. are our credit cards charged for the planes at the time of purchase or at the time of shipment? I ask because if these are back-ordered, I don't want charged until they actually ship.

Thanks,
Mark
