Well, I had to pay for the return of an item back to HobbyPartz which is really NitroPlanes so, there is nothing new here!

If you deal with Horizon Hobby then, that's a totally different story! Horizon has sent me via mail a shipping label.

Just different outfits.

Hey, Zagi Crazee... I've ordered from Nitroplanes/Xheli dozens of times over the past 2 years. I'm in communication with them about this group and your issue, so if you don't mind giving it one more day, let's see if they respond and make good on the shipping.

Hey BH i already sent out the esc, it was only 2.58 so it didn't break the bank, but it's the idea of it, all of the other places i deal with in this hobby, and there are a lot of them, have always paid for return shipping, besides it is going to take them another 5-10 days just to "process" this problem,once they receive it, that is just that much more time that the DC-3 sits on my bench and is not in the air, what they should do is send the new one immediately. instead of making me wait until they get the other one, now that they are out of stock again, who knows if i will even get the esc for awhile, i didn't even see a parts list for this plane............

DC-3, C-47 News from AOPA.org

AirVenture to feature 40 DC-3s, C-47s

By Alton K. Marsh

If you happen to be at EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh on July 26 youll get to see the loose formation arrival of an expected 40 Douglas DC3 and C47 aircraft, led by a modern U.S. Air Force C17 and three of the DC3s.

The celebration, organized by a group called The Last Time, will assemble during the weekend of July 24 and 25 at Rock Falls, Illinois. It is expected to be the largest formation of DC3s and their military counterparts since World War II. On D-Day the aircraft were part of an aerial armada totaling 11,000 aircraft.

The Last Time is an organization created for the sole purpose of reuniting flying examples of the Douglas DC3 and the people associated with them, for one last time. The goal of the organization is to celebrate this aircraft and its people.

BladeHead-Thanks for the heads up about this event. It looks like I'm headed to Rock Falls, Il. this July. I wouldn't want to miss this gathering of DC-3s.

Best,
Tony

I have to pay to return the defective 2.4 GHZ transmitter that came with my Airfield Giant P51D. I'm swapping it out for Futaba FASST so I don't plan on using this TX anyway, but I am giving it to my kid for one his RC projects. It's annoying receiving defective junk and then being inconvenienced due to poor quality control.

I was going to buy this Skybus but am having second thoughts, based on some of the initial reports. I think I'll wait for the ariframe only version because I am getting tired of paying for junk motors, esc's and useless electronics.

rob-Still on hold due to the high winds and rain. Needless to say, it's been frustrating. I've been assembling other aircraft till the weather improves. You may have yours finished before I do.

Best,
Tony

yeah looking forward to seeing these painted birds, i have been on to a local seller here in NZ and he says that he will have them in a few months, so that gives me time to save up and see what mods you guys do
but in the mean time i have been playing with my christmas present from the mrs FSX and got these shots while flying
happy flying
