New Product
Dynam GEEBEE Sportster

Has anyone else seen this, or have plans to get it? I was just looking at videos of the Sportsters that Hobby-Lobby used to sell-wishing they still carried them. Now this!! I like foamies more than wood anyway.

I just ordered one. I like the 50 inch wing. Its pretty large at 3 LB and should handle the wind. I will let everyone know about it when it shows up.....3-4 days or so.

I am glad to see that someone has ordered one. I am "on the road" for the next few months for work, and wanted to get a thread going so I can live vicariously through others until I can get my own.

Uboxing

Roger.......copy that over.

I will take some unboxing pics and let our pilots know about the quality. With Dynam on a roll as of late, she should be real nice.

My BEE shipped out in less than 12 hours and is on its way up north. Great job Nitro planes !. I also like the aluminum wing braces . They even painted the forward one red. Probably only the tip of the iceberg. Nice touch Dynam !.

I have noticed that a lot of vendors use shipping company software right in their distribution centers to generate tracking numbers and such. It doesn't necessarily mean that it is on the move, but I still like the warm fuzzy of knowing that my order is receiving attention.

Good information, thank you !. They had it pulled in 1.5 hours then on the loading dock in 7 . Then it was on a plane from LAX 5 hours later. She will be arriving in San Jose california on Wednesday. Whoohoo

Update.....The big brown plane just landed at SFO ( 8:30 ) PM PST with you know what inside....Thats only an hours drive to where I live. Looks promising

Its here !.

Its here ! Whooohooo
This airplane looks ideal to both hop up, and do some club pylon races with.
I am astounded at the quality, with this purchase being an exeptional value for the money.It was well packaged and arrived without a scratch.She comes with two 12x6 props, some super nice wheel pants.....already set up....a nice collet adapter/ spinner hub.....aluminum wing braces etc. I am talking a two hour assembly including the programing. Only 12 easy steps.

I was able to get some really great unboxing pictures before the sun set. All I can say is Great job Dynam and thanks Nitro Planes . I am going to the gym to work out but promise to have the pics up tonight. Check back in a couple of hours.
