That is the big problem with BH - Customer Service. It is nearly non-existent. You have absolutely NO CHANCE whatsoever of changing your order. That would require them to work slightly outside the box. But, the good news is that the SkyS flies fairly well with the brushed motor and the 7.4v LiPo. I have one SkyS with over a hundred flights on it with a brushed motor. It is stock except for the safety changes that are necessary for the health of the plane. You might take a few minutes and review the following page for recommended mods to keep you out of trouble. Also, you might want to join that thread too because it has all the necessary information to REALLY have fun with the SkyS safely. We don't do stock over there except for the maiden flight. I am sure you will find it interesting. At any rate, read all of Page #1. The information there is very useful. If you have any questions, please post them over in that thread. We are there to help you..

Well i contacted their live chat and they quickly canceled my order and i was able to order the RTF with the BL option.

It has shipped already and should be here by Thursday just in time with Christmas. I just hope nothing is damaged.

On i am reading through the the entire mod thread which is great. Im currently on page 102 lol but i already have everything ready to use the 3m mini hooks mod for the wings. I already bought the suggested control horns and also bought a roll of the 3M extreme tape which was crazy expensive.

I cant wait to put it together

Merry belated Christmas to everyone, still enjoying and flying my Sky Surfers FPV stuff arrived no time to play with it yet. My 90mm f22 arrived on time and made a welcomed addition to my fleet of planes.

No, just the motor and the propietary motor mount. This is the ESC I am using in mine and it has held up extremely well. I like the fact that it has two heat sinks. It stays cool inside the Sky Surfer electronics compartment.

Whenever I go to their website and click on "Airplanes" my web browser times out. Is their website jacked up or is it my computer?
