have you been to China? everything's small. you can barely fit in the hotel rooms, among other things. I'm not surprised at all. LMAO.

I don't know what rooms you stay in...... or very short term stay in ...... but the room I get in the hotel opposite my office (Kunlun Beijing) is very reasonably priced and very generous room sizes. About a 10 minute walk from the Canadian embassy......and Aussie embassy too. They are literally next door to each other.

But your right, everything else is small. I can't buy shirts or shoes in Asia.

Funny enough that in China itself you can't find clothes that fit you when everything is made there anyway, ironic isn't it?

LOL

NS.

Can ANYONE tell me if this will be available in the states???---If not available in the US is anyone in Canada willing to order one of these for me, slap on a new shipping label, and send it to me???

Kevin,

I also feel your pain, and I have connected HK a few times and they said the post didnt allow it. but other websites are shipping huge boxes via the same route even 100cc planes!!! im really frustrated, because you get all excited to order their new products but at the end you can get it shipped

is it possible that they are making excuses for you guys in the US because they have an American warehouse that you can order from? we don't have that option north of the border, so they ship here from HK. it sounds more likely than an actual shipping problem. it's kinda like the Canadian government not wanting us to go south to buy brand new cars even though they are much cheaper than here. they discourage us by negotiating with the companies to deny warranties if you cross the border to buy. very much the same thing if you ask me.

Problem here in OZ is that they don't carry every aircraft and don't have the ability for you to order it and wait until the next shipment arrives.

By the way:

there's a downloadable building manual at HK:

it says:
Quote:
CG: The ideal CG is 35mm in front of the main landing gear. For the first flights, make
sure that the CG is in this location!

Yes, definately hopefully true!
But at least the information about the GC is interesting - unfurtunately I coudn't find any information about deflections... however it seems to be managable to me.
