Cool
LeadersHobby Starmax 64mm F-22 $31!

Had to share this little gem I found from the leaders LA warehouse. Starmax 64mm F-22 for $31 plus $10 shipping. I said what the heck and pulled the trigger. Had it in 4 days, nothing broken and one easy airplane to fly! I went with the Dynam 4400kv motor and fan from the Habu clone, 60A ESC and a 4S 1800 pack. I get 5 minutes of pure fun for cheap. I do not work for Leadershobby but wanted to get the word out in case others are poor like me ...

Thanks for posting, I ordered one too! Love it when you can get just the airframes. Looks like I have a new home for my Wicked 4800 unit.

Are you talking about the fan\motor\esc\servo package for 40usd on hobbypartz?

~80usd PNF for a decent setup is a really good deal

I ordered one week ago and still no order confirmation or shipping notification from LA warehouse.
Sent two emails to them and no reply either.

Its Chinese new year and all the email traffic comes from Wang Chung Provence or something like that. I will agree that getting a tracking number is like pulling teeth but the longest we have seen for delivery was 9 days and we ordered five F-15s and split the shipping. I have never received a confirmation email, just the words "processed" on my accoubt tab.

It's epo foam, very light airframe, 64mm EDF included. Do not confuse this model with 70mm Starmax version BH sells.
Got mine yesterday via Fedex Home.There was no order update on their site.
Nice model for the money.
