what's the difference between preorder and backorder?

if you preorder then it will get to you when it is first available ?...
why does preorder only last short amount of time?
if you don't preorder then you can't get it right away?
I preordered mine this afternoon.

As far as i know when the stock comes into the shop yours is already paid for preordered and youve secured your product for pickup or delivery. If they dont have enough stock coming in to cover any more preorders then they will USUALLY halt any more preorders and put up backordered or ordered until they get some idea of a arrival date.

Other then that im new on this forum so hi to everyone. Im still very challenged by the UM Polecat which is still in one piece and Ive got a new sbach 342 3D waiting on my flight bench which looks scary at this stage so i hope this is a great plane for the future and looking forward to the reviews here.

that they are on the way to them, and if you have ordered one from them you should be one of the first to get them

Lucky for me, I just tell my LHS that I wanted one, and they put one aside just for me. :-)

I am sure it flies great, but I have to keep reminding myself --Seth could pick up a 1x12 board at the local lumber yard and clamp a rubber band motor on it and make it look good.

NO DOUBT! That said, WOW, what a great flying plane. Might now be on my have to have list! Man HH has pretty much picked my pocket this year! Too many great releases.
