Was super excited the other day - they were showing in stock! I was leary about ordering from Banana because of their bad reputation, but decided to give them the ol' college try.

Wish I'd never bothered. Just canceled my order after no contact, no emails after order. Asked live chat why my order had not shipped and they told me it was not in stock when I ordered and they had no idea when it would be. Canceled on the spot. Let's see if they can do that right at least.

I'll wait for the BEV FPV ship to come into stock over the winter I guess Was so looking forward to my Sky Surfer

I would, but it's never in stock. I had an order for one for a month and eventually got fed up of waiting.

I see... Well, I don't know how open you are to other planes but if I could recommend an alternative, you could try this one. It isn't as big as the Sky Surfer, but it is nearly as fun. Plus, it is a lot easier to store and transport. I got one of these earlier this year and it is a great little powered glider. The servos can get stripped fairly easily, but replacements are cheap and easy to change. Plus, they are in stock

I flew the sky surfer more than anything this weekend! Got a 34 min flight with it and then all the other flights were in the 20 min range. This thing is awesome!! I love it!! Here are some pix from this weekend. I was able to fly with a Pelican too!! Take a look...
