emm.. better go for a scale F-22 or F-15 Cwilde
ofcourse the price is tempting.. but I think the ones that I mentioned can fly slower than this one and more stable

What would you suggest as a 3s set up on a dynamically balanced 64mm EDO? I want to keep this one as light as possible and go with 3s.
Would the wicked 4800 in the 64mm fan be good for around 400 watts? Let me know because I need to make an order!
That is exactly what I would suggest for 3S.

Has anyone received a shipment notice yet? I have never had an Express Mail order sit for 3 days and still not be shipped but then again I never ordered a plane from them either.

Ill let you know, I just ordered mine via EMS express No LIPO....


Well it will take a lil while longer Don, according to the Discussion for the red one, this is a JIT Item meaning it will take 3-5 days to be shipped from the other warehouse, then combined with other items and then posted.

So 3-5 days longer then normal. Which matches up with your 3 days with no dispatch time.

I ordered a red one the other night. Should be alot of fun.

I plan to put a 40a turnigy plush esc in it, just cause i have it laying around and leave the rest stock. I will be using a turnigy 1600mah 3s lipo. Hope this brings the CG about right. This will be my first EDF jet.

I just hope it flies as good as it looks.

HK has gotten worse and worse about shipping in a timely manner. I still buy batteries from them and I want the Stinger. My last order 2 orders I paid for EMS and both orders sat for a almost 2 weeks. I finally had to go on the online chat to figure out what was going on. They said it was going out the next day, but that day came and went and finally 2 days after the chat it shipped. It took almost 4 weeks to get my last EMS order from HK China.

My first order from HK USA was paid for, shipped, and received in 3 days. They need to get more stuff at the US warehouse.

yeah when i put an order into the australia wharehouse i get it within 4 days of placing the order. If i order from hong kong im surprised if it turns up before almost a month has passed.

I think you just have to take hobbyking for what it is. Cheap and nasty and you cant expect much from them. Take this in mind when you order i keep telling myself.

I disagree a lot of HK stuff is of good quality just as good as the bigger brands.
