I don't think RCG is the "Evening News" of Gravity Hobby operations. This forum is about 5% of all Gravity Hobby sales.

Nothing wrong with being a skeptic, within reason.

Thanksgiving. The crowd loved it and were very interested.
I'll have vids up soon.
Been flying my brushless Zero I got from them as well. Too cold for much of anything outside.

What site sells the kind of motor that will give me a speedy plane?

What prop should I run?

Should I use a 2s or 3s lipo ?

I know there's a lot of info in the Cox thread but it's almost too much to read through just to find my answers.

thanks

I want to apologize to everyone for the blatant advertising posts about Gravity that have come from my China partners, I have set them strait and this type of posting has stopped. Just so everyone knows we ARE a US company but based in Hong Kong. We now own the tooling for the Cox warbirds and they are EXACTLY the same models rest assured, just at a better price. Please stick with us as we are just getting going. We have our warehouse in Florida and thats where shipping is from, not China. Keep an eye on us as we will have many more products to come. Every product is tested here in the USA using die hard modelers like TEX and myself. Every product we sell is high quality and modeler approved, our line of batteries for instance has been tested by experts here in the USA with outstanding results. Many future products on the drawing boards are being designed right here in the USA as well. If anyone has a specific question they can IM me anytime.

Tukkus: I like the following config for quick, but not insane:

Hobby city 10g brushless (2000kv)
Hobby city 6A ESC
GWS 4040 (or 4540 if your build is not super light)
3S 300mAh (HC cells soldered together, or alternate: 360 mAh pack)
2.5g or 3.7g servo's
6300 or 6100E rx

If you want to push the speed envelope, maybe Joe1320 can chime in? I believe he's the speed master...

Are the P-40 and FW-190 in stock now? I ordered the pair a couple of days ago, but didn't see any back-order info. My card was charged.

Thanks

Got my shipment today!

Corsair, P-47. Took a look at the Corsair, looks pretty much the same as the old Cox version (as expected). Too bad the blizzard hit here, looks like winter's setting in...

Thanks Gravity Hobby, for bringing the Micro Warbirds back! I hope it's a prosperous endeavor for you, as it's certainly made my day...
