Well crap................called Castle today to check on my motor order............she said, we've been so far behind due to all the bad weather.........and now the 2028's are on back order.......WTH.

I told her they didnt show out of stock when i ordered................she said, Im so sorry, they should be in in the next week to ten days.......

I replied, "so a week......or ten days.........which is it..........do you guys know when your own motors will arrive from China..........?"

She told me they ordered a while back and they are waiting but are not positive of an exact date. I told her "that must be frustrating for you as a salesperson to not know when your own product will be in to sell". She then said in a disgusted way..."they dont tell us crap"

I let her alone at that point and told her to remember she said i was first on the list to get it out when they arrive.

So now the waiting

That bites a big one. You can't do much of anything with it until you get that to build around.

It just snowed here 8 inches! Anyone who thinks their weather is goofy doent have an idea of what goofy really is............couple weeks ago weather in the 70's.............Saturday in the high 60's.........today 25 and snow........overnite low 16..........then Sunday forecast for 62 and Sunny................

Went ahead and ordered the 2028 from OSE!!tired of chasing it around..............now i have one from them and another coming from Castle unless i cancel it.........may just leave it and sell it when they get popular and scarce...........

Could possibly get the motor by Sat.............if not Monday!

I hear ya scorp. Sometimes it's hard to be patient. It's about time you spent some of those $$ you've been hoarding anyways.
I'm holding off to see if Dave will want to part with his "pattern" once he gets the coolers & jackets programmed in.

Bill, if you decide to run a 2028 in your 47" mono....lemme know and i'll sell you this one for like $25 less than you can get a new one for when/if you decide to..........it'll free up some $$ for me and save you a bit of dough anyways.

It will still be a bit before I start thinking seriously about a 2028 for the mono. Gotta get the hull to max out the 1527 (instead of the other way around) 1st.
I'll def keep it in mind tho unless you get a chance to recoup before then.

Gotta do something on this big guy................so i made a beefy RX pack. No AA alkiline 4 cells for this build........gonna have dual Traxxas 2056 waterproof servo's, so i need some grunt and mah. These were from an older sub C nimh pack, took it apart and resoldered it all, added an RX plug connector that has a switch on it. The cells were cycled beforehand while still in the 6 cell stick pack form to make sure they were in decent shape. These should easily supply the servo's and RX for many runs.

My 2028 has shipped! Went ahead in anticipation of it and made my own water jacket.............hopefully the 57mm listed as Diameter is with fins, this pvc cooler is 60mm inner diameter. If not, i'll just make something else......added some bling to it.
