That is weird, something smells fishy with that.

That's also what it said 5 or 6 hours ago.

Wholesale HH website (I work at a LHS) lists a release date of 5/4. Add transit time. Hopefully next week?

Also, be careful about promised pre-orders. HH typically distributes their limited initial supply amongst retailers, so a LHS pre-ordering 12 may only get 2 to start.

First one in my store is mine!

My UK LHS has just advised me they're expecting stock early next week.

Sadly they're not offering the basic version so the price I have to pay includes a celectra 2s charger that I don't need and an E-flite battery that I don't rate

They already have the floats in stock but I think I'll pass on them for the time being - my Mini Drake from Park Scale is close to complete and fills my need for a water borne flyer for the time being.

Why?

I'll keep you posted regarding shipping. I was promised that CC will arrive monday 30th.

"The Carbon Cubs will be arriving with us on Monday and are available to order from 3pm today. We now also have the floats in stock and listed on our website: http://www.rc-choppers.com/index.cfm/categories/e-flite-umx-carbon-cub-spares-65"

That is deceiving then, they state in stock, to me that means in their warehouse ready to ship. If they are arriving on Monday then you are pre-ordering. Still this all sounds good as I should be getting mine this week.

Just home from lhs picking up some batteries and they had the same info - at least at Horizon next week, but couldn't guarantee in the shop next week. We are close, so we get them the next day after they get them ready to go out.
