Where to get stock 2.5:1 Sporty EP gearboxes?

I've been waiting for months for Hobbypeople to get the gearbox and still the website states overdue.. Anyone know where to get these gearboxes? I know that the Wattage mini-max also uses these gearboxes and I'm almost tempted to just buy a mini for the gearbox...argh.

I'll look at my local hobby shop, I know they have been stocking the 370 motors. Have you thought about using one of the other wattage gear boxes, I know they have those in stock.

the real answer for the sporty is the following:

280 BB motor (run in first)
MP Jet 5:1 BB gearbox
9x6 APC slow fly prop
and 9 cell 720 mah NiMH pack

the 9 cell is very important. i flew mine for 7~8 minutes on that pack including some aerobatics. the bad part about this is the power system will cost about $60 + battery. you can get the motor, gb and prop in one package - its called the acro drive 350+ BB. just my 2 cents worth.
