That sounds more like it, I just sent an express package that weighted 1/2 pound to New Hampshire and it was only $29 insured and will get there in 3 days. The thing that pumps up the pricing on my packages is the insurance, sometimes its half the price of the shipping. Thing is if I don't insure for the price I sold it for I only would get back the cost of materials if something went wrong and still have to pay the customer back the full amount they paid. Believe me there is a big difference between the $100 for raw materials and the $500+ I get for the finished product that I am not willing to eat

Surely the best position is one up front or behind with the second servo at 90 degrees to it

I've been looking at several of the heli's on the benma site for a month or 2 now thinking that some of these looked promising for us as well. Time will tell I guess. They even have a single blade FP military heli that might be fun,http://www.aliexpress.com/store/prod...571193241.html I just wonder how many if any will be 9x compatible...

They're actually not auctions, I don't like those. lol
Were you interested in seeing the RTF's dude? Just search that seller's listings for V911 RTF

I like that other heli too, BlueHavoc. Some good detail on the canopy.
Man, I just need to win the lottery or something.
