I thought I read that too but thought maybe if they only did 300 per day it would take 2 or 3 days to get all out. either way is good. the time will come.

thanks for the help!!!

Elaborating a bit... moving the rudder servo to the tail for a push pull arrangement moves about 3/4 ounce from near the CG point to the very tail of the plane and will move the CG back quite a bit.

Mine will be here Thursday. I hope the UPS does not break it, but they have managed to break something on every plane I have ever ordered.

Yeah, I noticed that when UPS changed over to their "new and improved" package sorting equipment all my incoming packages began showing excessive wear, tear, dings, and holes. After the hassle of having to go through multiple damage claims with USP I gave up on them. Switched my company over to FedEx's Ground Service about 3 years ago, and the result is 90% less damage claims.

Guys.... what happens to a package could be on your delivery truck and have nothing to do with the decision on the carrier.... If you haven't heard it before, there are a bizzilion reasons for why the shipments come UPS and none of us are in Ben's shoes so if you have a specific complaint about a specific delivery speak specifically to Ben..he has always taken care of his 3DHS customers...

if someone wants to share their woes over shippers or non-specifics you can go to the chit-chat forum and work a thread there... Just saying.....

Got anxious about waiting for my plane, so I decided to play with some custom decal designs! I know the fonts are all wrong, I just wanted to get a idea of what it would look like! Whats everyone think?

I like lots of decal-coverage, so I say go for it.

Received mine!

Most of the office wanted me to open it on the spot.... So I did!

"It's so light" was a common comment.

I've got a club meeting today and a company party Thursday night, but this will fly this weekend!

Thank you Ben.
