I'll go to check it out at Lowes or Home Depot, Adad. We don't HAVE a screen door (seriously). Guess I'll patrol the neighborhood and see if my neighbors have a "screendoor" with an AMR near it. Not too unusual this time of year for things to get dropped off at other houses. Usually nearby. Gets us out to meet the neighbors for a forced gift exchange.

I'm excited, though. If UPS thinks it's here in San Diego, then it must be. Only about a million other houses to check.

By the way, how's that 50 motor sized bipe coming along?

It's Official!

Hi Guys,

Just got off the phone with Adad from P/A and have a new RED Ultimate AMR with IPA and Carbon Spinner on it's way to me! YEEHAAR!

Fingers crossed, I may just have it in time to treat myself to the 'Ultimate' Christmas Present Ever! (pardon the pun! )

Can't wait, will keep you all informed!

Cheers

Mick

Congrats, Mick. The Malaysian RC Mafia is looking forward to see your pics and the 'Ultimate' wallpapers. Talking about wallpapers, maybe we can make a page on our 3d-aerobatics page with a download section of wallpapers. Yours would get a prime spot, of course. What do you think? I can't do it at the moment. I fuxked up. Was doing something on my laptop and clicked here and there and all of a sudden I realized that the accidently erased the website backup

But I will do it as soon as I am back in KL with the rest of the gangsters.

Cheers, BT

Screw that man... lets just convert all large sports buildings (stadiums etc) to indoor flying facilities; I reckon you could fly a 40% 3D plane in the Montreal olympic stadium, and it's not like they are using it for anything else; we have no baseball team anymore!

Mine just got here! It wasn't due until the 23 so I'm a happy camper! About how long will it take to put together?

Crash, mine took a little longer than a KMD. The CF wing fastening parts are fun to put together. The best tool for me was a pair of hemostats, they are perfect for holding the nuts in place while you screw.

Edge, I like your foamies.

My AMR's ready to fly, just have to wait for it to stop snowing.......

Looks like my 2200 PA Lipo I ordered with my AMR is puffed and leaking!

Dude... It's a FAMILY show, try to keep it rated "G"



Crash tester; Sounds like one of the cells may be punctured, or the seal between the terminals and the cell foil wrap has failed. I've had that happen to another brand pack once.

Ha ha ha, aflipz, good one. Come to think of it "The Dude" used hemostats in the tub with the whale songs, but he should have a set in his Torino.
