Those are on back order at the moment. That is the one I have been planning on per flyingJ's advice.

Also I have some .031" piano wire if anyone would like some for the push rods.

see B3 build note at: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...&postcount=#38

If that link didn't take you to the exact post, it is #38 on that page.

If they're the ones from HobbyKing, I just received an order of them... took 3 weeks. I ordered a couple extras... if you need one quickly, I can help.

djensen - The battery is the only thing I am lacking to get me going. If you are willing to part with one, I can PayPal you.

The GForce 350 looks fine to me. Only 10mAh less capacity (not enough to make any difference) with everything else being nearly the same. Try one!

There are also other sources for the Rhino that might be in stock, just cost a bit more than from HobbyKing, but you also get it much faster.

Mike, The G force looks better as its a shade smaller. C rating on a DLG is a NON issue.

I think the 2S lipo is one of the few things that dont really matter on a DLG, so long as the capacity is there.

Jim, so the Blaster is ready to go as soon as you get a battery???

If so, what parts did you use? With links for bonus points!!!!

PS, in fact I would think a high C lipo will be heavier and not give you any added benefit as it has same capacity as any other C rated pack.

In 6 months when it comes in stock it might be a good option.

Or cut a cell off of these.

We could be in the lipo makin business.

Those Sky lipos at HobbyPartz are too big to fit in the nose of a Stobel, and probably many other DLGs. They are thin, but wide and long. The wide part is what gets you. What I'm waiting for is the day somebody makes a nice tapered shape lipo that can tuck all the way up into a DLG nose...

Ron on the Blaster availability it is up to Adrian or anyone else who has committed to one. We have 5 in the mail and they are going to the following

Jon L 1
Adrian 2
Mike 1
Jon F 1

I still have nothing from Kennedy on shipping, or an invoice. I am gonna wager a bet I just get a few boxes in a few days and a charge on my account eventually.

Not quite. I just got the AR6225 today. I have 2 x JR285 and 2 x Dymond D60 servos.

I just have the control horns mounted and will start taping on the servos tomorrow. I am not going to do the wing mod. I will put all my servos in the pod. I have some parts in the bag that I am not sure what they go to.

It pretty much looks like to me that the two sets of instructions I have are for people who know what they are doing, so it will take me a while to study it all out. The pictures help me a lot.

The 5 B3 Dboxs ship in 3 hours.
So we have a few hours to add anything to the order.

I knew someone else was going to be wanting a Blaster... I had a feeling to have you add the Pink non-carbon D-Box Blaster 3 to the order Jon.

I would bet if someone else wanted a Blaster 3 since there are 2 non-carbon d-box version and they would need another box anyway. I would bet Jon could still get the discount they just wouldn't ship until Kennedy Composites get back from the show.

I just ran the last post through the google translator so you guys would have a clue what Mike just said.

Mike said "I was thinking about adding the non D box blaster to the order, but I bet even though the order has shipped for the 5 D-Box versions we could still get a discount on a future bulk order"
