Hopefully me!

Just ordered mine via EMS so hopefully maiden in one week.

This little one will go nicely with my larger Fantasy Racer (GB R3)

It looks much nicer than the fantasy racer. I'll be interested to here how it lands. I didn't like the fanasty racer unless I had a headwind. TW

Really? What's your CG on your F/Racer?

I have mine at 3" and it lands like a dream no matter the wind speed...

From the HK Skunkwerks video it looks like it can take a pretty ugly landing

I'm waiting mine with international registered post.
Plane looks good! It's a pity for the foam spinner, they should replace it with a plastic one and add replacement parts!
Someone knows who is building it?

Yea, the spinner is pretty flimsy looking.

Mine will be getting a 2 blade prop and a real spinner right out of the box...

Two weeks shipping by Hong Kong Post to the other side of the country from me, in my case, New York. A week in Customs. Then a week back to my side of the country where it sits lost in the Post Office for another week because they lost/forgot the pink notification slip. But it is ok, I saved $3 bucks.

I sure hope it doesn't work out like that for you!!

I hope the extra $ I paid for EMS is worth it as mine is still "processing." I haven't ordered many planes from H/King, but the ones I have done with EMS before had them at my door in 5-6 days. I hope they get things moving soon...

I've ordered a lot of stuff from HK and sometimes it takes a week and once it took 45 days. So I expect the worse (45 days) and hope for the best (7 days).

Well, at least we ordered while it still was in stock What price did you guys get? It seems like HobbyKing has bumped the price about $10? (from $59 to $69)
