81s will work, but they're not very tough - I think the HS65MGs will handle the landings better.

Sorry about the shipping change - your buddy got in before I was able to change to the correct shipping. Trust me, it costs way more than $20 to ship these things. It was my mistake in the beginning and it cost me because the margin is next to nothing during this sale. Just one of those things, I screwed up in the beginning but I couldn't leave it that way or I'd actually be paying out of my own pocket! Hope you're still interested.

We're down to 6 or 7 kits now.

I've been toying with the idea of using some Hyperion digital micro's, any thoughts?

The folks who ordered on the first day of the sale will have it the best. Those orders are going out immediately and shipping from HK usually takes about 10 days to most parts of the world (give or take and depending on customs).

The rest are a bit more hit and miss because those kits have to be shipped from the mainland over to HK and then go out. Probably adds another 4 or 5 days to the process.

We're down to the last couple of kits and I'd guess those will be gone in the next few hours.

I'm glad I got mine. Will you continue to sell the LT at the same time as the new version or is it now GONE?

Gone, gone, gone. When the manufacturer saw all the new orders their eyes lit up, but when I told them it was because of the radical discount they came back to earth. The secret is that I cut as much as they did from the price so neither of us made any money - but it got those boxes out of their warehouse which was all I wanted to do. I've asked them to hold a few parts in reserve for replacement, but it's just a handful of miscellaneous stuff.

Does the build blog discuss how much wind it likes and...?

1. What is the prime wind speed for the Jart without ballast?
2. What is the max wind speed for the Jart without ballast?
3. What is the lowest wind speed?
4. Do you add ballast and how much can you or have you?
5. Can you DS the Jart and what is the fastest it has been clocked?

post in original thread instead?

you may want to post there... so all can benefit, as this is in the "vendor" area, you may not get too many responses.

The Second Batch is Going Out!

My apologies to those who've been waiting, but I've just gotten word that those who were in the second batch of orders (second day of the sale and beyond) will have their kits go in the post today.

I won't have computer access today until tonight, but I'll get tracking numbers out asap.

Thank you very much for your patience. I'm afraid the sale was a bit more successful than the manufacturer had anticipated.

Cheers,
Reed

Wish I could still get one. Lost mine in Oregon last year due to lift dying and falling over 1000 to valley below.
