yea, guess I could. I just dropped 150 for a 100 degree rotating pair for the Hangar 9 P40B I'm building. I guess I can look at dropping another 300 for another two pair but it sure does hurt. If I hadn't put so much time into the mods on the P51 and the F4U I'd probably just buy another two planes but the Eflites will probably be the route I have to take. The V7s I bought for the P51 were 64.00. I'll report back on how they fit and perform. I think I'll buy another pair of Eflite 100 degree rotaters for the F4U. Anybody tried to fit these into a 1400 MM F4U yet?

I did too. They are the only option for rotators, and especially the 100degree is a major advantage.

They are nice, although 1 piece failed on me (which was replaced by HH), and another piece is having trouble operating at 5.2 v (wants more volts).

I just received news from FMS today 2/24/2013 that both the Alum. & Plastic E-Tracts will be available at both Banana Hobby and Motion RC here in the U.S. soon! No news was available as far as PW-RC or RC Castle yet.

I just checked the FMS site. They have a link to e-tracts, but nothing there yet.

Don't know too many struts that fit a 10mm pin

Link?

HK generally does not sell FMS products (unless they contract them to make them for them).
