Let see
Preorder with BH for 199 plus postage
First Promise of shipping Mid July( Never knew of BH meeting expected date)

Price paid from Easy tiger 275.00 shipped EMS
Date Received July 1, 2011 Seems like first in USA to customer

Service you get with Easy Tiger Priceless

I will have to admit that marketing and display BH does win but also the service after item is sold mean quite a bit. as I said ET priceless

Well I am no BH fan but .............so far only one A1 showed up in your post contest lol , so we dont know the condition yet , and we have yet to see pics over in that thread.

And sincerly I do hope the ET thread does get the servace if needed , because I am paying 200 plus $61 from Rob , dont know if I will get the model but so far communication has been good and I did not preorder.

Have never ordered from x-flight, but I can not say enough high complements for PW-RC, as have been one of his customers for quite some time, have never heard one bad complaint from PW-rc

I have ordered from Easy tiger without ever any compaints, and ordered only once from Rob which am waiting for mini skyraider

BH lots of misses service is not one of high points, displaying and video Pete of BH does get a A++

First was Philip design of the p51, you and I both must have been his number one and number two customers. He bends over backwards to make sure each person is happy, it not just the sale but it is the SERVICE
I have 3 of his B17 which is a work of art. Think reason there are so many of the foam 17 come out it was from his 17 at last years China show. When you send Philip a question normally get an answer with 12 hours

Cost of the mini shipping was like 16.00 but elected to not get the EMS shipping. Was concerned about Rob's order because first one and was suffering from lack of communication between us but hope that is solved now, he is checking on new dates and said he will update web site as show shippment of end of May.

Philip does stand out
