Oh, that's good to know. I actually bought 4 sets. I'm going to upgrade all my telinks to long arms to make them meaner!

I went with orange as no red left, but it looks high vis at least. And I actually like the underside, presuming they kept the fan shaped black stripes

The arms that come with the kit are plastic but they seem very rigid.
In my haste to order this plane I failed to notice that arms, spinner are all provided with the kit

Hmm, I hadn't noticed they were plastic. I didn't open the package, I just thought they looked like a light colored fiberglass. Should still work ok though I guess. If not I'll just make some new ones out of fiberglass sheet, that's what I usually do anyway.

Hk 939's are quite good for the price. A friend has been thrashing around his 48 inch slick running these Servos for quite some time now with good results.

Notice basically all sold out at bestvalue RC. I must have purchased the second to last orange, then both blue models, and the orange sold out hours later! The news is out

The motors on bvrc are worth considering. I had the blue 1000kv, was great, just needed a stronger xmount.
