Assuming you're not taking the mickey, it's the biggest sale day of the year in the US, when retailers reputedly go "into the black" from boosted sales. I think the reality is lots of people buyng mostly TV's.... rather than helis, shame on them!

Nothing like that. I do know fools waiting in lines for 2 days for the new release of the iphone5.. fools with no brains.. they paid prim price for a crap phone and waste 2 days of thire lives for it.

We do have the boxing day sales, but nothing to the extent of what I just read in the US... its almost like people are in a do or die if they dont get it!

There has been over the years a large dumbing down of america. It starts in our government ran schools. In none of the public schools is taught mass media. A class that would tell the masses that this is just bull. I didn't go to public school. So I will not kill my neighbor to stand in line to get $50 dollars off a TV that will be $100 dollars off next week.

edit I will kill my neighbor to get $1 off my new lipo lol!!

I bought some blemderm tape off Ebay. But it's not a phone or tv

How do you guys balance your blades? Without having tape showing? I use blenderm on the bottom of the blade. I guess near the center of the blade length now. No idea about lateral balancing. Is that even a thing for 500?

I get better blades

Sorry but all the blades I use are balanced. Really no joke! The last set of blades that I needed to balance came from ebay.

I balance the blades to get the same CG point. 80% of the time it requires tape. Then balance both blades get the same weight. Dont know any other way other than to use tape

me too.

I use black electrical tape if balancing is way out & clear scotch tape for minor works.

Anyone having issue with getting on HK's site?
