Airplanes now are being manufactured. I think you may contact Feda to place your order right now.

That's a good color scheme. You've hit three home runs with the three you're offering.

So, when can we expect this to be shipped? I placed my order for a red/white/blue on the 11th. Got an email saying it would be shipped in 10 days, that would be the 21st. Then posts here saying they are shipping. Just checked, and it still says "not shipped".

I will be using Solar D650s. They are almost the same specs as HS65s except they are digital and a little smaller / lighter, and so far, much more precise.

Hi tmsn,

If you ordered from BestValueRC, it should be shipped already. You probably will get a tracking number for your order later today.

It looks like the pre-order thing does more harm than good. I am not going to accept pre-orders for the third color scheme. I'll just accept orders when they are actually available.

Hi Feda,

I did order from BestValueRC. I've received no shipment notice. Checked my order and it says not shipped yet. Like I said I ordered June 11th.

Pre-orders are great, the problem is when they don't get shipped on time.

Edit: Just received shipment notification right this minute.

I pre-ordered from MileHighRC and got my shipping notice today from UPS. The tracking number shows that it was prepared for shipment on the day that it was stated to be available from the pre-order. Very happy with the service so far.

I quite like this scheme but on my computer it looks pink. Is it?

One thing that I think would really improve the looks is if you could paint the edge of the foam side pieces to avoid the white lines either side of the top of the fuselage. Would this be easy to do? The white lines accentuate the boxy fuselage and it's "supposed" to look rounded. It looks like all the parts are painted before assembly and you'd have to do an extra paint step after, but would it be possible?

The color is red, it may be indicated slightly different on your computer.

The procedures of painting and building are EPP materials need to be painted first, then cut by sharp knives, they are very very difficult to be painted again after cutting. So the "white lines" we see on fuselage are other sides of EPP films.

I stayed back at bit later at work today, and it's a good thing that I did; the postie had dropped off a parcel for me just moments before I left .

Here are a few initial pics. I did a quick test-fit of the main parts. They went together very nicely. The airfoiled tail surfaces look great. The paintjob looks really nice too .

Oh, and there's an English language manual included in the box.
