W T F they had 2 IN STOCK red bold letters no preoder etc. arg. then he mentions there not even out yet. i say lol the first shipment is already sold out and the second shipment is due any day. he says "oh" we thought we were getting the first shipment. he had no clue the planes were already out there and that the second shipment is what they would be getting. he said he talked to "Nole" at 3d hobby shop today and they hope to get them 12-2

-Im SO frustrated at them. they showed them instock and sold one to me never even having one (sounds like they never got any of the first shipment according to him) so now i have to wait for 3dhs to get them, then ship to esprit, then to me

That way I could have two small holes in the foam to insert screws through, and mount the tip using the existing SFG holes in the wing tip. Then I'l have the option of nothing, SFG's, racing tips, or SFG's and racing tips together.
I'd be going balsa/ply structure covered with ultracote so it's a full match.

Please accept our apology, Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals completely killed us. We had record sales as well as record number of shipped packages every single day of the week. We were working 9-10 hours days. Because we added those models just before we left for Holidays; our web master did not realized that shipment from 3DH is not in Florida yet. (We had final shipping invoice.)

Tomorrow I will have guys make it right and we will cancel your Turkey Day 10% OFF order and have refund your CC right away. If you have any problem, please call us and ask for me.

yeah thats what i was saying on the previous page http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showp...&postcount=890
it has been updated to "coming soon" since i made my order. but the entire time we were out of town for thanksgiving for a couple days i was checking the website every couple of hours for those couple days and every time it said "2 In Stock" in bold red print. so as soon as we got back into town i ordered one and it still said 2 instock just before i ordered it. (i didnt check to see if if went down to 1 in stock after i ordered)

Jason told me to call back today for an update so i will. but it doesnt look like ill be getting it any time soon.

Hmm, did Stang just shoot himself in the foot? Cancelling the order and thus losing a 10% discount and I think that Esprit has a little cheaper shipping to Texas($25 when I checked).

I probably would have just hung on...after a nominal amount of complaining.

Funny, I saw the two(2) in stock on Monday to. I was trying to sneak in the CYBER2011 code. No go.

I ordered a silver 74 from Esprit on Sunday and took advantage of the 10% discount. No hurry for delivery on my end as I'm waiting for Santa to bring me an Ice 100 and a CC BEC to put in it.

5985s on the elevator and ailerons
5955 on the rudder.
6S-5000

Can't decide between a Motrolfly DM5320-330 and a Hacker A60-6XS.
Any thoughts?

330 kv on 6s? Way too low if you ask me... you would probably be turning a 21-22" prop at that kv. I think the sweet spot on this size plane is in the 19" prop range based on all the ones I've run on my 70" Slick. Generally a ~380kv motor will get you in a 19" prop range at around 2200 watts. So for me - I'd choose the Hacker if you are doing 6s.
Ken at subsonic planes might be able to custom wind you a 5320 with a higher kv, not sure. I put a 5320 in mine, but I'm also running 8s...

I think Esprit is awesome. I've spent about $500 with them in the past 2 months. Never had any problems.
