Ok good, it seems you guy's are receiving the email then. This only applies to those customers that have ordered up until approximately 18:00 HKT and is a good will gesture after my own unfortunate tongue slip suggesting it did ship with a spare prop, when in fact it DOES NOT. Lots of egg on my face right now...

For those of you that had placed an order before this time, please do check your spam/junk boxes too for this email if you have not seen it yet.

Also please look to our product listing for details on the correct suggested CG. You'll shortly be able see a .PDF of the amended instructions under the 'files' tab too.

Stuart,

You really should email customers that bought it about the CG. There would be lots that wont notice if in Files or are members of RCG.

No bonus for you this month lol.
I would recommend emailing the cg issue just to cover yourselves.
How are sales on this product for you following all the great YouTube hype.

People have had this for a couple of days now and STILL NO FOOTAGE!!!!!!!! (HK footage doesn't count as there is no landing )

Come on people, seems as though the non-interested folk got the plane first

I think people wanted a grass landing, but to be fair you couldn't do much more in the videos you have done.
Is it possible to slow the retracts down a little more, any ideas on how to do this with a dx6i would be great.

Don't think it can be done although I have not tried a servo slow down module between the gear and the Rx. My DX8 however will slow every servo except the gear.

I was just looking at those modules, might have to give one a try.
I was also thinking about fitting a 3 axis gyro to help with the scale flight.

Well also I got my sorry email from HK at 6pm this evening........

Dear valued customer,

The Durafly Mk 24 Spitfire that you have recently purchased was advertised as coming with a spare propeller.
Due to a mix-up, it turns out that your 'spitty' has not been shipped with this second propeller.

To rectify the situation, we will be sending you a spare propeller in a separate package. This will be done automatically, free of charge and requires no further action on your part.

We apologise for the mix-up and appreciate your custom.

Kind regards,
HobbyKing Support Team


HJ........... thanks Stuart!
