^^ I was going to say the same.. $10 shipping from HH, or free shipping from Amazon from HH.

I just ordered a GeeBee! Wanted one since when they first came out.

How's the slow speed handling? All the clips I've seen are them whizzing around at high speed. I don't expect it to be a Cub but still....I have a baseball infield plus a little of the outfield to fly it in.

Received mine from HH a couple days ago and also bought 2 extra batterys. BEAUTIFUL!
I went through the other posts and found 2 items to check;
* The rudder horn was loose so I CAed it and all the other horns.
* Some have a over-current cut-off problem traced to the stock prop and ESC; If yours has it, change prop to GWS 5030 or trim and balance the stock prop to 5".
Also needed to tweek the pushrod bends for the rudder and elevator.
Almost want to have this for a display model.

They slow down nice. Tough to land. I usually take off on the runway and then slow way down and plop it in the grass. Keeps from getting rash all over it.

Thanks! If you can slow it down and then "plop it" it can fly slow.

Picked up a Gee Bee and an extra lipo for $80 from my LHS! Can't beat that! Funny story, I initially contacted HT USA on my way home from work to see if they had any in stock and they had one. I asked the individual if they were honoring the price from HH and he said "yep, $169"! I replied "nope $65"! Lol, he flipped out and said he had to check. Came back on the phone and said, "this can't be right, my cost is $120"! I told him, if he'd honor the price I'd pick it up on the way home. He told me he'd have to call me back and took my name and number.......he never called lol. So, I picked it up from my other (family owned and ran) LHS!

I think I was under $60 shipped for the UM Stryker with the facebook code.

Maidened it yesterday on the slope, light winds. Flew for about 25 minutes with a gentle throttle finger. Conventional landing in the grass, or the flying stall method both work perfectly.

Flew it again today with about 15k wind. Let's just say it was a fine way to spend 60 bucks. Big smiles all around.

Just called my LHS, they're honoring the price. They don't have it in stock, so they're having to get it shipped in, but they're still honoring this price. Bravo!

Looking forward to trying this one, should be a blast to fly!

I love mine, but it took a couple of warranty claims to get it right. The motherboard was driving me nuts between the low voltage cutoff on the first and erratic servos on the second.

Model number three is a winner.
