According to David Eischtedt with HH... the parts should be hitting LHS shelves very soon. But I think most of these are showing as in stock on hobbyzone's website now.

I put in a half day so combined with after hours work Friday and Sat I don;t have to use a vaca day today.


Generator disconnected and all wiring cleaned up and put away. Keeping Gen on Standby for a few days due to Heat Indexes. AEP Warning to "Conserve" between 3p - 7pm. Overloads.... Could trip it down again.

Lightly Charging 1S packs for the Heli to fly under the shade trees later.

The 130x is also much larger than the mcpx but it's still perfect for the back yard.
(Watching your 130x vid now)

What are the Batts in the 130x?
