If you mean for less than this one, then...no.

Well, now that I think on it, there is a guy on eBay, Phil's Hobby Shop, that charges less shipping than Tower.

Well, the problem is that I can't find any in stock. If someone has a set sitting at their LHS I'd be glad to pay a little more for their efforts.

In just a few more hours June will be next month and Tower might have them..

Last time I was at LHS they still had not gotten any replacement parts in for them..

An object in motion will remain in motion, especially if it is a battery pack.

Wow! That's some serious "lousy flying" you must be doing....

I now have a spare canopy thanks to Bert from dynamicfoamy.com and the strip down of his Sabre, so I will be mounting the micro FPV gear in it this week. This will allow me to have it as a stand alone unit I can just drop on top of the Sabre.

The indoors flight still eludes me. I'm going to try to get to it again this Friday morning if the workload allows me to.

Repairs complete

Actually the little black speck in the battery tray is a tiny piece of the hook side of velcro. I had a larger piece in there but had to remove most of it because the canopy would not seat properly due to the thickness of the battery pack with velcro on it.

I left that tiny speck of velcro hook tape to keep the Lipo from shifting during flight. It was helpless on impact.

Tomorrow we fly in the morning skies once again.

Then you are not using the approved Velcro in there.. As the official GP Sabre F-86 Clear Transparent Velcro PN 91299 one works with no problems at all in both of mine..

So i tried the NT 300's again; all were balanced prior to flight

One discharged as it should

One was a bit off

One was way off (must be a dud)

That was not an example of "lousy flying". He wanted us to see close up "how it is made".

OUCH.
