Well, mine just showed up. Didn't think so as FedEx tracking did not state out for delivery.
Original box, no signs of damage. Inspected, all seems there.
Parts bag inside the fuse.

One very odd thing through; The manual shows the assembly of the fuse process, yet the fuse is fully assembled with servos and mounted motor. I would have prefered non-assembled.

The fuse isn't damaged, but I did notice that the push rod for the elevator is about an inch too short.

Received mine today. They all came in a very large box via fedex. No damage at all.
They must have a killer account with fedex as the charged shipping was about half of the street pricing.

Dunno how many flyinwalenda got but here's what I got:
2x Twisters
4x Minimags

I'm done inspecting them and it seems everything is okay and no parts are missing. Some boxes were **slightly** dented in the corners but we can guess the cause of that. I wish Multiplex would routinely clear out old stock like this more often.

Well, it's been 24 hours and no reply from the seller. I'll give him another 24 before filing a claim. I hope I don't have to go through that, as the cost of shipping it back will certainlly not be as cheap as it was for him to ship it to me (he clearly has some kind of "bulk" rate going with Fedex that I don't have). If he makes good on this I will be buying two more of each plane, should he have more to sell. If not, I'm only out $35, but I would caution others before ordering. Guess a little more time will tell.

On a side note: I wish the motor wasn't preinstalled. I don't see me ever flying this with a brushed motor. Also disappointed to see that the ESC will only handle a 2cell lipo. Makes it kinda useless to me.
What brushless motor are you guys using in the Minimag?

I would not count weekend days in email response.

I am confident you are not out $35.00.

The seller may provide options as; replacement parts, replacement kit, partial or full refund.
Replacement kit or full refund may cause you to pay for return shipping.

Again, always keep ALL communication through PayPal.

Actually the first filling with PP is a dispute and I think you have about 45days from purchase date.

Bulk rate can be up to around 70%

The motor, speed 400 direct drive cannot handle a 3S lipo for very long.
Several BL motor options. Do a search here on RCG in the correct forums.

My self, if I have a BL motor in hand that will work, I may use it. If not, I just may add a gearbox to the existing motor that I do have and run 2S lipo or 3S A124/LiFe.

I'm gonna be running a mega 16/15/4 motor (2200kv) in mine. Yeah, I think the brushed motor is pretty useless too.

I got mine on Saturday, it was single box but everything was in perfect shape. I'll give the brushed setup a try with a 2s lipo, if not I will probably drop a 2000kv 28mm inrunner with a 3s and a 6x4, I imagine thats enough power to tear the wings off
