I think they usually open the preorders when they hit the water. Since they haven't, I doubt they are arriving in the next batch. (YMMV, IMHO, etc)

Seriously man, i really do want to see a few more videos. I'm trying to decide if i should collect some gear for this thing or not. It looks pretty cool but i think there is 2 videos and a whole lot of pictures(which i thank you guys for providing)but if it's due late summer i'd like to see some more of it so i can make up my mind

So if not on this boat are we most likely looking at 2013?

The 'Got ETA' page says spring 2012.. which isn't really very helpful

Well i guess it depends on their definition of late summer because they sent an email to everyone with that as the ETA. I really want a bipe. No point in waiting I'm just going to get a bipe foamy instead

I read that the 51" Slicks are coming in August in the 51 thread... so maybe the Bypers could be in that container?

I also miss those sweet few months where the Got ETA page had real information. It makes you not as confident flying low when you have no idea when you could get a replacement. Even if it's far off, knowing is better than a big question mark.

I was going to say that fuse looks to be about 48-50" long, if not longer.

Got the servos and ESC/BEC. Planning on the motor/airframe combo.

Ok, guys, I'm ready. You can offer it for preorder now.

All I have is the urge.

But I sure wish Ben or someone from 3DHS would update things. Maybe some one attending the Fly-Low-In East in New Jersey this weekend could ask them and report back. In reality, I just got a nice Spektrum radio for this plane. I'm just waiting for 3DHS to open the gate.
