Couldn't you put the ESC in an airtight box?

There is no way it is just another ARF. Buying the same airplane that thousands of others buy is in no way unique.

If its a flying boat, flying go-cart, flying lawn mower, flying super hero, or some other gimmicky flying random object I'll be highly disappointed. I'm sure some people liked the Hyper-Taxi, but the LHS was selling them for $50 at one point just to get rid of them.

Poster a while back commenting on their common delayed release dates"

"No they still give them. Just look at the E-flite Albatross. Early May turned into early August which turned into early November and now it's early December."

I was all ready to purchase the Albatross back in July, when they first promised it. Saved my money for it. You know what happened? I got tired of waiting, and used that money for other airplanes. Now that the emotions have settled down, I realize that it is overpriced anyhow.

Maybe they are giving you the option to come up with a custom color scheme for all their planes they sell?

I was thinking something similar like Callie style custom decal sets to make unique models, but it doesn't fit with the likes of Spektrum (radios) having the same unique bit on their website. Decals aren't a radio thing.

So it's probably some evil scheme to sign up for promo discounts or something as mentioned here already.

I mean what product would it be that includes all RC aspects of Horizon and not just a plane / heli etc.

It's gotta be something more dynamic and less material

Wraps are a super huge thing with cars, even on radios.

Hmmm, decals could be it, but Apple style. You just write down what you want written on your airplane (like on an Ipad) and they do it for you at the factory before shipping.... Nothing we cannot do ourselves, but hey, they would probably be the first one to offer such service in the RC world I guess...
