Looks like im getting a destiny.

well i was playing with the checkout to get the "TOTAL" price with the destiny about a week ago.... with and without shipping.... but then i ended up picking up the mini blade....

i got an e-mail asking about the order and i said i was gonna pick it up insted and all was good....

i just got an e-mail saying my order was shipped out... lol

what the heck am i gonna do now? lol.... i guess im gonna be taking the "part time" job at hobby people to pay for this plane and the gear im gonna need for it.... im kinda bummed i have to cough up the money for it, but at the same time i do love the destiny....

now i need (3) hs-85mg's, battery, electron6, and X-tal.....

man, this is gonna be a funny story to tell the g/f and my parents when a box costing me 205bux comes in the mail.... haha..

i just spent 250 on the blade, and my g/f spent 220 on the eclipse 7..... GOD this is an expensive week...

Yup usually only takes about 2 bills to get your 1300$ bird back flying again after dumpin it... Then again when you dump a Wizard or a Opus while DSn You dont have much but your radio gear I would assume... I could be wrong...

DOOOOOD! i dont see how people do it the the rudder... ITS A TIGHT FIT with just the elevator...but it does come together easy..

OH! DONT USE HS-85's in the wing, it doesnt like it... it will work but it doesnt want to. get the 125 thin wing servo's

so i guess since im getting the destiny, i'll maiden the MB this weekend (since its already built) but i think im gonna gut the blade and wait till i can come up with some 125's in the wings to do it right.
