Alright, apparently after all the anticipation, I slept right through Christmas morning. Banana's web site says mid-April and I can't even find a listing on rc-castle.Where did you get these? Link please?

Jeff, rubbing the sleep from his eyes.

Hey Steve, Raymond emailed me and said that the motor is a 580kv motor and that it is more powerful than the 500kv. So I guess we shall see how your prop works out on this motor.

Also got my shipping notification this morning.

Badclams, you know your more than welcome to come by and check it out.

Jeff, they were in stock for about 8 hrs. yesterday at RC-Castle. They are sold out now so the wait begins again for folks that missed out on the first batch.

Dang!. OP do you haunt Raymond's site, or did you get notification? I would certainly like to get one of the next batch.

Regards,
Jeff

Ordered my bird yesterday with speedpost, and it shipped today...so I hope to have next week sometime. I ordered an extra set of Props as well. Will be in California most of next week, so the maiden will probably not be until the first week of April for me. I am going to try to use my SkyLipo 6s 4000, but have some 3300s as backup.

Wow! Your going to go straight to 6s? I think 5s would be more than enough for this plane. After all it is designed for a 4s.

Jeff,
I would keep an eye on PW-RC also. Phillip may be getting some in soon.

Yeah, I haunt his site. I have been wanting a new FW-190 since Parkzones and this one looks the best. I tried that cheap flyzone imitation FW-190 and while it flew well, she has some issues that I just couldn't overcome.

Thanks guys. I generally check Philip every couple of days, haven't been to Raymond's site very often. Guess I will have to change that. I just picked up a couple more 4S 3300's so I can fly the Zero and the 190. Dang, again. Jeff

Recieved an e-mail from Phillip today. 190 and 109 are both in stock now.

Philips got them on his site. I just ordered mine. Sure hope I don't get first run blues like I did with the 1700 Mustang

I was going to wait until spare props came up but seeing how quickly RC castle sold out I just placed the order as quickly as I could! One on its way to East Rhodesia as we speak
