Filling orders has been a challenge to put it lightly.

Yes the Cargo Transport is pretty neat. Saw it at the show. The motors come pre-wired into the wing and there is a plug in the center of the wing that the ESC plugs into.

Came!

Hey everyone, my fw190 came.. if you examine the photo there is a slight crack that runs along the fuse. this appears not to be a production error, but looks to me like it may of been mishandled during transportation. the box looks like it has been "bowed". or put under something heavy.. Anyway, i am verry pleased with the overall arf and am excited to begin building.
Thanks, [TEX]

Still no access to anyone outside of the USA? I give up, looking elsewhere.

I've ordered 2 f4u corsairs...I have a question for tex. When I ordered it had a 'name your price' for the corsair. I put in $5 and ordered 2. My paypal has been charged as of 12/1 and my order is #74. Will I actually receive these at this price?

I received a Mig 15 from another company recently. If I had looked closer, I would not have accepted the package, because it had some obvious crushing (A note on the box said not to accept if there was damage). Fortunately, there was enough space in the foam container to prevent damage, but I was lucky.

Many freight companies treat their cargo like it's indestructible, unfortunately that's just the way it is. Was your shipment sent inside another box with some padding, or was the box just wrapped and shipped? Some companies do this, others don't, but it's the only way to prevent these kind of problems.

It was sent in a slightly larger cardboard box that fit it just barely

How do the smaller FF versions fly? Has anyone tried one? (as an FF, not RC conversion)

I'm happy- I can now pitch what's left of my Spitfire. Not my favorite airplane, but you guys enjoy.

I missed something, that's regular pricing, I have the price sheet right in front of me. This is the sort of thing we have to continually work on here.

For those that did get their products, enjoy!

Not sure on stock yet, you could contact them for a quicker response.

If you log into the Gravity Hobby site, it shows a cheaper price than if you're not logged in.

I paid 17.77 for 4 planes on 11/23 and now it seems as if they keep getting cheaper.
