I really don't want a refund .The kit wasn't much money to begin with..I think at this point,It would be more trouble than it's worth, to send it back...I might make a hanger queen out of it instead. I would really appreciate some sort of a discount coupon though,,towards another purchase in the future,,,''maybe a Ventus''??....Thank you...

I can give you 10% back on the total of the order, let me know if that's fine with you and I'll have it processed for you.

I'm not seeing the CMP Ventus listed on Nitroplanes website anymore after showing out of stock for months... and being told way back in February that they would have them in six weeks. I cancelled my order way back then as I wouldn't have been in north america when it was delivered if the six weeks had been true..

Too bad.. it and the older Discus (which is also not on the website anymore), are both nice scale birds for the price. At least mine are!
I ended up getting a Discus last October in the UK after nothing but frustration in North America!

Even if not entirely true to scale, both look like nice scale sailplanes.... The Ventus would actually be a Discus 2B as the kit has no flaps.. and the real Ventus does... just sayin'

Glad I managed to pick up one of each.. would have been nice to have gotten another.. As it is, the Discus looks so nice, and now that it looks irreplacable, I don't want to risk flying it!

I made the request with the billing department to process the refund back to your account, when the refund has been made they'll send you a email to let you know when the funds will be back in your account.
