Got a similar one when I ordered a MX2 Dec 14. Delivered on my doorstep today here in Norway - must be the fastest delivery from HK ever, under 6 days from I hit the "BUY"-button until I had it in my hands. And that even includes customs clearence in these busy days!

Best regards from Norway,

Ive got a few planes awaiting a maiden, we aren't the windsurfing capital of Australia for nothing hehe, it has been blowin a gale here for weeks, it can get very demoralizing this time of year but it will soon die down and our winters are very good.

KaiWE did you ever receive a tracking number with it? I still havnt. all i get is this:


Delivery status information is not available for your item via this web site. A return receipt after mailing may be available through your local Post Office.

Still nothing as of a few minutes ago. It's not like im expecting it no time soon, just odd they show it as shipped and the EMS number still isn't showing as a good number. Thanks for your reply....Robbie

I wonder how hard it will be to cut out a split flap and attach it to the installed flap servo. I was thinking about getting the PKZ one and moding it. Once some people receive theirs and identify shortcomings I will have to consider this one. It looks so much sharper than the PKZ one (IMHO). Can't wait to hear the reports from those who went all in.

Its typical of the bait and switch............. They want to grab all the orders and money and deal with shipping later because "you" the customer has no control over "that". Its a typical of many international "practices".

Another "practice" is to hype up anticipation on up and comming product when they know that its going to be LONGER than specified arrival. Its basically a big "lie" just to make the sale and to deal with shipping later.

Its frustrating to see all the obvious operations sometimes. <:O(

If I get this plane I will do the flaps . I will cut them out , link them with a slotted hinge and one scale looking wire link and they will activate from the original servo

Not sure what your saying exactly?

Bait and switch:
The "bait" is saying...."this is what you asked for in Model:XXXXX and its coming Date:XXXXX" or "in stock...shipping Date:xxxxx".. "PRE-ORDER NOW!"

The switch:..."Sorry not instock yet... or PUSHED OUT until late xxxxx".... or "your order will ship soon"...then weeks later..still no shipments


C'mon we all know what I am saying. We just have to keep giving bad feedback until it gets "better".

I know what you're trying to say, but you are incorrect in saying that this is bait and switch (a pretty serious allegation to make by the way.....)
For this to be bait and switch, the switch would need to be HK saying "product x is out of stock at the moment, but product y IS in stock and is only $20 more"
The way I see it you are after 5 star service & cheap planes that fly extremely well, and you are going to whine and whine until you get what you want. I'm not sure that you can have your cake and eat it too, but I will happy to be proved wrong.

Well, you can take it easy on the "pretty serioius allegation" suggestion.

Baiting someone with "coming soon" and "ships Date:XXXX" ....also "This is what you flyers asked for" or similar inspires ones to buy.

Also, I know "coming soon" is all perspective, but we all know Soooooooooo many have waited...both AFTER PURCHASE...or BEFORE PURCHASE on empty promises. Or UNTRUTH.

You make the call. I'm just sayin. <:O) Also, just pointing out the obvious.

Its all good, I just feel sorry for soooo many including myself with dissapointments.

I know so many also get tired of videos promising such a good product when SOOOO many of us have to change out the servos MINIMAL in order not to DRILL INTO THE GROUND WITHIN THE FIRST 3 FLIGHTS!!!!!!

Ya.......so many have been burned that way too. Just sayin.
