and you need buy other stuff for 100usd, and the stuff you buy also takes weight, so the shipping cost would be very much! Too much!

It's only 20 minutes later and not showing up for me. Gone already? I am currently browsing on my netbook in a moving car connected to my cell phone for internet, so I wonder if that has anything to do with it. Everything else works perfect, I bought on paypal and another site just fine. Looks like shipping is prohibitive anyway.

I just tried to add it to the cart, (with over a $100 already in it) and no go...listed as $159 in the cart.


14 Minutes....ridiculous.

This is harder that coyote trying to catch the road-runner.

This is what happened to me today. This thing is in the USA warehouse and shouldn't cost more than 25.00 to ship? I sent them a email...(Below)

Good Day...

I am a little upset with your company today and with good reason I think. While shopping for a new airplane on your site this morning, I received the "FREEBEE" pop up stating todays "FREEBEE" was the P-40 ARF kit! Great I really wanted it. So I got to shopping and wound the plane I wanted put in in the cart along with a couple of batteries which added up to 108.00 or so. as instructed on the pop-up I added toe P-40 to the basket, great I was going to receive a great "FREEBEE", wrong, when I went to check out I received a message the parcel was to big to ship? What, why is this plane offered if it can't be shipped in the USA from the USA warehouse? Yet if I was going to pay for this plane I put it in the cart by itself I could buy it and it would ship no problem. If you know a "FREEBEE" is unacceptable to certin customers shouldn't you offer an alternate that at least he could receive? I was really disappointed when I was unable to receive this.

After doing my part, you Guy's didn't do your part. I am going to post this on RCGroups in case anyone else runs into the same problem.

Way to many airplanes!
Had to think about it twice, but finally decided to go for it. (Had to put another order in anyway). Mainly because I'm TRULY hoping that I'll be able to use 8 of my 2200 3S battery to make up two 6S battery at 4400mah (with a homemade serie connector). If they fit inside, then, I'll simply have to order the motor, the servos, and a UBEC (I already have a suitable ESC). If the batteries do not fit, then I'll simply try to sell it cheap, probably simply covering the shipping cost, so this way, I hope I cannot loose. Only review for it is not that great though, and those retracts do worry me (and I want them to work if possible!!!) Not sure I would go for fixed landing gears...

Now, I hope this thing show up fast to my place before the freebies are over.... I quickly figured that I need a $45 motor, $35 worth of servos (only need the 7X17gr), and a $10 UBEC, so for about $90 I can get this thing in the air (and if I order $10 more of little goodies) probably get another freebie when I'll order the stuff I need...

P.S.: Thanks Dmitrius!
