Hey Michael, that’s terrible news. I hate to think what that crash scene looked like.

Lexin, the recommended Hitec Servos for the Bandit are the HS65MG size or digital equivalent.

Oh no! Hopefully the contents of the trailer will also be covered by your insurance.

The PA Bandit sure looks good! I have pretty much decided that it is my next plane. The planes I'm currently flying the most are PA Addiction and NPM Fury and the Bandit looks like a natural step up. I bet I could even try it with the 1600 mAh Nanotech lipos I have for Addy.

Looking forward to see more pictures, videos and build experiences. I hope the deliveries start going out soon. I have to wait till mid October since the Danish dealer who serves Finland as well gets their shipment only then.

Even more bad news... He was uninsured. Trailer not insured, but homeowners covers contents... Big deductable made it not really worth it. To add insult to injury, it cost me 500.00 to get my crashed trailer out of the Tow yard! Ouch! POlice are charging him though!

Got my new trailer already so, i'll be back bigger and better!

yes that is correct.. already started shipping in the US!
In Australia the container will arrive late today and orders will start going out tomorrow. may take a few days to go through all the backorders though so please be patient with us.

Decisions...

Trying to decide what color...

Are any of the colors sold out yet?

Is the blue the same blue that is used on the Purple Addiction X?

thanks

Ok i asked Shaun if it is the same color, and he say it isnt, if you ask me i would say the Blue on the bandit is a bit darker and more metallic, it looks really beautiful!

Hmmm... Trying to get a reference for the color. Darker blue would be good, to bad its not a mettalic royal blue.
Theres no inflight photos of the blue. Watched the video and now I am thinking I like the blue better than the red.

I guess the green is similar to the Extra MX green?

You guys are so lucky that shipping already started in the USA.
I will have to wait till October before my preordered Bandit will be shipped in Germany.
Ordered it 2 month ago and have been patient ever since, but seeing it shipping in the United States and seeing the components waiting for it, makes me really edgy.
