Well that is a different scenario. I am saying that nobody forces you to pay for an item, and then the price changes/// So you should get money back for a watermelon that went down in price the next day?

Ok I understand what you are saying. Didn't mean to dispute!

This place rocks!

For the first time ever, I was able to resist a purchase long enough to get a deal...hahaha.

Wholesale Trains:

The Beast - - - $84.99
D6Xi - - - - - - $144.99
3 props - - - - $2.07
Shipping - - - - Free
Total - - - - - $232.05

Without the previous reveal teaser thread, I would have ordered a Beast last week for $129. I'm glad you guys made me wait!

Thanks,

Tim

Wholesaletrains is the place to shop for sure. They have a ton of bad feedback, but as long as you are careful not to get caught up in their expensive shipping, I think they are great.

With that said, they now offer the BNF 4Site for $74. I paid them $94 for it not long ago Ofcourse, $94 was still much, much cheaper than normal

This 'new' battery, couldn't it be the mCP-x battery in a 2s config?

That's good news, since both Hyperion and Nano (superior) replacements are readily available. I've given up on getting different batteries for every different application, hence I've 'invested' in 14 mCP Hyperions and Nanos (both are excellent - much better than stock) and fly ALL my Micro stuff (except for the mCX) with these. I'm pleased to see a Y-harness will work out perfectly in this beauty, even though I'm still on the fence. The Beast is my all time favorite, I'll probably pick up another one for spares! But I'll might get the Stryker if it can handle (significantly) more wind than the Beast. Anyway, kudos to HH for bringing something new to the table (unlike the Polecat).

my wallet, she weeps softly....

Also, looking at the video, I'd say she's back-yardable. Seems to slow down and float pretty well all things being relative. You won't be able to really crack her open till the park, but she's worth pulling out when the trees are swaying....
