Will parts be sold or will a new plane need to be ordered everytime a part is needed?

Seems like Dynam made a deal with the devil (ok, HK is not exactly the Devil) but if they don't carry it in the US warehouse, the US market is screwed for the Meteor. I guess they wanted more international exposure?

I was lucky to get my Rx ready one when it was just about $150 shipped. Flies great.

I am guessing that HK told Dynam that we will buy a huge number of planes, but you aren't allowed to sell them to anyone else.

Dynam then says, hmmmmm, we do not have to ship them to the USA, or deal with customer service since HK does not really offer that feature, great deal for us! We can fire and forget 1000 kits and wash our hands of them.

i don't see how the habu is better than the meteor. For me the meteor is better. Has better cooling. Has the esc in the back so you can balance it with larger pack

The RX ready Meteor was SO darn fast to build up. I hate buying parts and assembling it anymore. If I were to go through that trouble, I would have spent another $30-$50 on a more powerful setup. I often go stock Rx ready just to get it in the air and start enjoying it.

Airframe in Aus for the Habu is $119, Im already at the HK price for the PNP Meteor.

Thanks for that. Just curious.

But I'm, very, very happy with my Meteor / WeMoTec / Het combo at the moment.

Doppler at around 95mph this morning.

Hard to believe my old Gaui Tiger Shark with it 3S 240w / 22amp setup is faster .

Cheers
