Well, I received an email finally with 2 tracking numbers after saying I was going to dispute through paypal. One shows no information and the other shows it posted on Feb, 18. Also, Ada stated “The items have sent to you for some time” so maybe it is the mail over there because it sure is slow over here. I still have a hobbyking order that showed it left china 20 days ago and is not showing any further tracking.





edit: the hobbyking order just scanned in so it is taking customs or USPS 20 days to get it from the plane at JFK through the first sorting center (JFK ISC). This package left hobbyking Jan 19 so that shows how slow things are. Over a month in transit.

nysom here is the link where to check if you got the tracking #

http://www.sfcservice.com/track/trac...a-post-service

my currently shows the following and most likely yours will the same:

Departured from SFC location, 18/02/2011 08:53, Shenzhen
Item pick up, 18/02/2011 00:27, Shenzhen
Electronic data received, 17/02/2011 22:13, Shenzhen

once it gets into the US it should be trackable on usps.com according to the email i got from them.

Deals do seem thin. Does this one almost qualify? $40 plus $8.27 shipping.

"Free Bird" QF315, sold via Amazon (a search on Free Bird will turn it up).

Quote:
The new item Q315 with GYRO is the smallest 4 channel RC helicopter. It comes ready to fly with a true 4 channel remote control, can stay steady in the air and hardly needs any adjustment.

Product Dimensions: 9.1 x 3.5 x 1.6 inches ; 0.6 ounces.
Sure hope this part is wrong:

Batteries: 1 Lithium ion batteries required.
Lithium ion?

Looks like 19g too, sounds tiny.

Why bother when you can get a RF controlled 4 channel for less than the price of this IR controlled bird.
Not to mention The sliding swash is a downgrade from a servo arm controlled swash.

I'm game, got one in mind?

I don't see IR as an issue in this size/weight class though. You're not likely to find a day outside windless enough and beyond IR range it'd probably be just a dot in the sky.

Don't quote me on this, but I think I've seen this bird for less than $40 delivered somewhere else.

Yea, they sent 2 numbers for 2 separate orders. They both show like yours that they left the Shenzhen SFC location. Guess they where just backed up from the holidays. But when I log in it still shows the order is Processing. They need to get a handle on that though.

Scorp, when you enter your track number in SFC whats the destination say ? Is it the address you want the heli to go to ? Mine says "calle cuba nr 5A Piso 3A"

This isnt my address lol - ( Im from the UK ) so I was thinking this was a step stone destination ?!

Falcon 8911/8913

Even indoors IR controlled heli's can be adversely effected by bright lights,TV screen and bright light streaming in thru windows.
