Thanks Chris, but I was talking about for my 2 - 400's yet to come (for my Buddies). If that is what you are talking about, then please disregard this message! Just want to be clear.

And also, I read where you felt bad for the time I have had to wait. Don't worry about that, I was never in a hurry, I just appreciate you building them for me. Honored Sir!

Well worth the wait!
Bryan

It was a very unexpected surprise to come home for lunch and find my Armattan 381 parcel waiting for me on the table. The custom made cardboard box arrived in perfect condition

Chris shipped on October 17 and it arrived today. Taiwan to Canada in 7 days which included the weekend, awesome job Chris, Taiwan Post, and Canada Post, and my wife for accepting the package.

The hard part now is finding a LHS that has 10Cm male to male servo extension leads to connect the KK2 to my receiver

If anybody knows a place that has these extensions somewhere that ships fast and is in Canada or USA, please let me know. I just ordered from 5 extensions from China for $3, shipped.

Thanks Everybody.

Using this website i found out that my package already boarded a plane from Manila via Taipei to Amsterdam,NL

Last time it was via Bangkok, so this time it should be really fast delivery !

Taiwan post seems to work much better than China Post !

You are very lucky, mine is travelling right across Canada from Vancouver to Ottawa, Ontario like a China Post Banggood order.... i don't know why they can't simply ship it to arrive in Mississauga, Ontario like HongKong Post and EMS packages correctly do...
not Chris's fault, I just don't understand the shipping practices from some places.... I should get mine in the next few days though.

Southern Taiwan, in Kaohsiung City. I'm not from here, though. I'm French Canadian.

Taiwan post rocks. Working for Taiwan Post is considered a very good job, here, so they take their work very seriously and they do it with a smile, too. Excellent postal service, here. 7 days door to door from here to Vancouver and that's just regular "small package" air mail. That was fast, though. The norm is about 9 days to Canada and US as well as Australia and European countries. I think that's pretty darn decent. Shipping from Canada to here easily takes 15 days and up to 3 weeks. Canadian postal workers are bitter and they only think about going on strike all the time. Useless twats.

I shipped 13 orders this week and 8 last week. Still have 8 to ship next week. I'd say that's pretty prolific quad building for a one man factory. My hands are a bit sore but other than that I am fine. I actually put a drill bit almost right through my left thumb last week. It's healed on the surface now but parts of my thumb is still completely numb.

@ Bryan: confirmed spare parts for your buddies.

Best,
Chris

I definitely appreciate all the hard work that you have put in to get all of us who have ordered these fantastic quads. I hope that when you get a chance to rest that you relax and have a cold beer or six. I for one am extremely grateful for your commitment to the hobby.

Thanks, Jerry

Thanks for the kind words, Sir. I had the day off yesterday and I finished the frames for ALL the remaining orders. I have the ESCs coming today and I will have them assembled this weekend. I'm darn sure I will. Yours will definitely be done because it's close to the top of the list.

TGIF!

Chris
