This would allow the spring to compress into that slot & still dampen. Once the gear retracts the support mechanism can still travel its full distance because the spring will compress onto the slot cut behind the track... Don't have plane in front of me so don't know if it'll work
Well that's what I though I was describing but I wanted it prettier rather than just gluing a spring in the end of the track. I have springs that already fits this but I wanted to see if the LHS auto side had something else.

I just received e-mail confirmation (6:36PM) that my order has been shipped, including tracking information. Earlier today, I got on the on-line support chat 12PM EST (9AM PST) to inquire about the order. I was told that the item is in stock, but shipping was pending because the warehouse move has caused delays, and it will be "shipped out soon." I then asked if soon was in days or a week, didn't get a response until the e-mail. I didn't threaten to cancel the order, just asked for the status, and I guess that got my order back on their radar screen.

What price are they offering them at online. Were they willing to match any show discounts?

from the pic u posted I just thought u were going to drop a spring into the track, by what your red marks indicate. But if u cut into the back of the track you can cut wide enough for the spring to not have lateral movement and put a cover over it to keep it from dropping.

Would any body that has this kit mind measuring the tailpipe diameter to see if these would fit? I love everything about this jet except for the foam exhaust nozzles.
Outer dia. would need to be 81mm and inner 64mm.
Thanks.

$319, free shipping with coupon code "HappyNewYear" at checkout.

Did not ask about show discounts they were offering at AMA - just as well, since I consider that a goodwill gesture for visiting their booth, as well as travelling and paying to attend the show. Saved about $40-42 in shipping charges.

I am going to change one male connector to a female then I can use them directly with my hobby king batteries. 4000 40c. I lost my Freewing F18 to a deans failure. They are actually deans knockoffs. I also had a fake deans break the spring tab off on first use on a FW 70mm and ESC combo. At first I was blaming the BEC for the Super Bug crash but I found the connector was making intermittent contact.

same thing lost freewing f18 to deans failure also. I had a separate bec connected and that's what almost saved her, but unfortunately altitude loss kept me from clearing a tree.

I think its one they made themselves but never released, or have yet to release. I think this is a video of the aircraft those nozzles are intended for..

No kidding on the battery weight being not enough V8, we finally got her together and went to test CG and found that she needs at least another 3oz (on the nose/fuselage seam, everything's stock in her), so maybe 6oz in the battery at least... What size/brand batteries are you gents using that might be acceptable? The 3300mAh 6s 35c hyperion vx gen 3 we're using is about 18.6oz as far as it'll go up in the battery bay.

So far (from what I know) is im the only 1 that has flown it. Don't know what others have used, but im using a 5000mah 6s @ 150mm cg. Stock fans aftermarket escs. I think with the stock fans u need at least 4000mah, but 4400/4500mah i think is the best. With a 4400/4500mah u might get away with 150-155mm cg. i have 4000mah and the cg is border line 155mm battery to the front.
