Re-issued??

Very interesting.

Certainly could be the case.
Look at that 'Due Late August, 2011' Item coming soon date.

Speaking of the box, why did Parkzone leave the handle off this one? I love the handle on the other UM boxes.

I got the first one my LHS had - the box has no handle The one I saw in there on Friday did have. Some sort of supplier miscommunication I imagine....

The box was discussed in great detail earlier in the thread...

Yeah, I've been waiting for the box... Sadly though, I want the Stryker and the Sbach first, but it will be on my list eventually.

Good luck with THAT! Better yet..

Fashion yourself a carry-handle, since Parkzone isn't shipping out the missing carry-handles or rectifying this rediculous situation in any way, other than with an appology.

It's not just missing a handle it a totally different box design. I don't travel with my mossy enough to miss the handle. It's just inconvenient when I need twice the table space to open up the box. I now find myself leaving the inner foam out of the cardboard box. I'm getting way to lazy in my old age.

Make your box into a flip top, it is quite easy. Just cut a lip about one inch from the top around 3 sides. As you approach the hinge, turn the cut diagonal (I like 45 degrees) toward the crease of the box.

I did this to my Mosquito and Ember 2 box and it is fantastic. Just be sure to do it on the front, if you care about that sort of stuff. I meant to, but some how still managed to cut my top into the bottom. The only impact is aesthetic, fortunately.

It can't be just the box, can it? Seriously?

Maybe they finally addressed the "bad" right motor port on the esc or something...

One thing is for sure, I for one will no longer be an early owner of a new HZ product.

I have one of the first batch out and have had no problems whatsoever with it. I also know two others who got one the same day I did and they have not had any problems either -- except the box that is.

I wish they'd come out with a glass nosed version. The guns lasted until the second landing, when the tight landing gear resulted in a nose over.

Could simply be the fact that the original batch has been depleted. From that point, it's a simple marketing decision. If they sold the first batch fast enough, the "re-issue" another batch. Since that's the case, it does look like they are happy with the sales. So, since Dave already confirmed that the original box with no handles or top loading was a simple mistake, you can bet that the next batch will have the right box. Only other change I would see happening is something to move the C.G. a bit. They do like to correct this type of things. Motor wise, I don't think they will do anything.

Hello again,
I still canīt get my Mossie working. Someone told me that it could be by range of signal. Could somehow the crash affect the signal range? Or it can be somehow battery?
Thank you, I am desperate, because I have no idea, what it can be
