Opened up to inspect and everything was is great condition. It does
have the new improved stronger hub--Great!!. Wing looks good to me. Nothing on box about V2 bit I do believe it is the updated version as there is a near horizontal line from wing tip thru prop hub but pics are attache and everyone can make their own conclusion--I am happy with what I have :-)
Still doesnt look right

So until I fix it (parts on UPS truck) I can't justify to her buying a $500 plane. Hopefully once I (IF I) fix it I get a high five and and okay buy the plane. fingers crossed or im out $150 and gotta call the tv guy.

The $30 bump in price is caused by their oversize fee they tack on. On the page it's whatever the price is and below that it lists the oversize fee. Put it in your cart and the oversize fee is lumped into the price.

I spent too much on other stuff this BF and CM likely will have to wait until next year, whether wram show, birthday, BF or Christmas. But I still follow (and hope they come through with another distributor in the meantime)

I spoke to a couple of my friends at "Hobby Town USA" that are managers in the RC Departments, and they said that they have been made aware that there is some kind of negotiations going on about them receiving the new line of FMS products and will be selling them, but nothing about when? or for sure yet?

I wa also offered a part time job as an RC rep as well .... in light of what I was doing with mine and knew about them

I know that BH adds the $30 oversize fee but the plane should list with the $30 added in .
When I sell on ebay and state free shipping of a plane , I know exactly what size it is when I list it . I just don't agree with a "click and bump strategy" , perhaps its just me but don't like that system .
Also now at $449 , your about 50 to 60 bucks off of RC Castle and he (Raymond ) Answers all emails .
Anyway back on subject, anyone know where to get the 2.4 orange spectrum receivers ? Hobby King is out and I have had nothing but great luck with those receivers

On the wifey subject I keep her in the dark likes its one big constant shell game .
Just sold my new Hanger 9 corsair , full scratch built interior, new os 91 , tons of detail , so I could fun the new corsair .
Then I make the purchase very very early in the morning , then I delete the paypal confirmation email , then I go to church for my deceptive behavior, then I get caught by her around 8:30 am when she checks deleted emails ,and we go shopping for her and the cycle starts all over

My wife is pretty understanding, but to a point. When the models start turning up in bedrooms and living rooms she gives me the 'eye'.

I help guys out by fixing models and I sell some of mine occasionally so I have them going in and out of the house and if one stays, I can sometimes get away with it.....
