Most of us have our own personal preferences concerning electronics and power, so an air frame only kit would be very desirable. It could also serve as a replacement part source. I ordered mine from BH and the control rods were pre installed in the sides of the fuselage. I had to pull them loose to get the servos installed. I would suggest that the control rods and decorative stickers come uninstalled. I would also like to see it without the motor. A universal motor mount should be included. That is my input.

It needs to be immortalized in page #1

Thanks very much A.J. I have had a power outage all day and just now back-on line. I will work on stand details this weekend. Pics & specs.

The present kit version minus the useless motor.

Or, the basic airframe alone.
Let us do our own electronics and control rods. We don't need cheap inferior quality decals, control rods or horns. We're going to add our Dubros, golden rods, Turnigtys and Spectrum stuff anyway and trash all the weaker stock parts that are thrown in the box.
It would be simpler for you and more economical for us.

Also, if possible, tell your supplier to leave the washers out of the nose. We'll take care of our own ballast if necessary.

And finally, thank you for asking.

I can accept an airframe only Skysurfer kit as well. I just wanted to keep AJ in stock motors.

Bill, did you see that transcoder program for the headplay goggles?

No directions yet but looks simple enough. I loaded it and looked it over. Seems to clean up video file so the work normally through the Headplays. Haven't tried it yet but grabbed it just the same...

V2 - Just like the last batch. It is ok to include the servos or not. If you are going to include the motor, make it the brushless motor. The brushed motor is worthless. You could sell exactly the same model that you had in the last batch and I am sure we would all be happy. The important thing is that you can carry them. What can we get in the shortest amount of time? That is what is MOST important to us - TIME. Because the Sky Surfer is a direct clone of the Easy Star at less than 1/2 the price, I am certain the popularity and sales will go through the roof very quickly. The company that carries them will be the winner. Right now, the thing that could be improved is the packaging. A few models are arriving damaged.

Gene,

Thanks, I downloaded and I am running 5 minute key cam video through it. Time estimate to transcode is 55 minutes. YIKES.

Anyway, which thread was that post?

Gad, what are you using? A Comadore 64?

If I told you that I would have to kill you.
