Wait, you absolutly have to try the Titan too....and at the same time, drop a scythe in the box, shipping charges will probably be identical anyway So far Titan is my favorite.

Yeah, I can see that happening soon. One at a time though, or the wife gets a little pi$$y.

The quality looks good. I am hoping to test them this week. I did modify one of them by pushing the shaft back through the bell. I did mention didn't I that if you want the motor mount and the nosecone you have to order an additional hardware package.

Ordered from RCTimers on May 14th, received order on the 29th.

I just got a H.King order in 5 days but everything was in stock. I used the more expensive shipping.

I also put in an order with H.K. for items that were back ordered and don't expect to see it for a while.

hmm....I may have to look at other options....anyone tried the exceed motor from hobbypartz?....I have debated ordering the lower kv motor from HK and possibly running a larger folding prop. I am going to use the Reaper for FPV only so it is a thought. Any suggestions? Anyone found a decent folding prop setup?

The Reaper can handle a lower Kv and a bigger prop if you make sure you have prop clearance. I have used the 3530-1400 before on it and it flew great too but I prefer the 1700 because if the prop size.

Yup...I bought everything. I have this compulsive disorder...

When I have been watching a product for a long time and it finally becomes available I tend to buy more than I should.

If you notice I like to use the same motors and props on the variety of the planes we sell so that people don't have to start buying all over to get a new plane in the air.

It is something we have discussed. You are not the first that has made that request.

How much interest is there out there?
