I finished my SC yesterday, and now only have to wait for the 6" of snow to melt of the runway, another storm due tomorrow, welcome to sunny California

I came in at 75 oz. with 4s 4000 Zippy

Hi Guys...

A question for you folks that have dealt with Reaper Motors....

I ordered a Reaper GR-35 from them on Nov. 30, and paid for priority shipping, which is supposed to be 2-3 days. This is now the 10th, and the motor is not here. I tried calling Scott, but got a message saying that they are having trouble with their phones, and can't answer them or get messages. I also sent them and email which has not been responded to.
The only reason I am questioning this, is that I have lately noticed some folks saying that they have sent motors in for repair, and have not gotten anything back from Reaper. Is there a problem with Reaper???

It's like Neu, great motor, but service is really slow.
I ordered 4 batteries from HC the same day I ordered a prop coller from Neu.
I got the batteries yesterday. Still no coller. Must be this time of year maybe.

Steve - It is hard to get info. I get periodic updates, if everything is going as planned in China and elsewhere, Reaper will have some cool new stuff happening...but I'm not privy to all the details.

We have stock on *most* of the Reaper motors, including the 35, so I can help with that if needed. Email or call.

i think i made a big mistake

i had to order some stuff from HK and to fill the package i added some 4S 4000 batteries. Dont have an airframe for them though but it looks like the 330 SC would fit just perfect

That's not a mistake, that's an opportunity!

That sounds like a 57" mistake, However I don't think getting a plane to use those packs in would be a mistake at all.

Lighter is better, but those will work just fine in an SC or and Edge. Better hurry because I don't think there are many left.

Do it!!

Agreed, lighter is better but this plane flies still phenomenal on the 4s 2200 X2 setup. Although, obviously the 4s 3700 flies lighter and more power but still very very do-able (and my main setup) with the 4s 2200 x2 setup.

No he kept telling me that UM was about to score on OSU.

Of course we all know how that ended.

Hi Guys....

I received a reply to my email to Scott today, and he says the order got lost while he was switching over some servers, it is now on the way.
