I got mine today too. Do the motor wires seem very thin to you? I'm at work so can't compare to Bix 1 but they look real thin.

FYI - a 4mm CF rod fits nicley in the new spar.

Cheers,

Same here Gim (at wk) didnt get a lot of time to go right thru it. Also keen to see how it lines up against the original when I get home..
Noticed the CF main rod was a bit lacking like the B1.. Will do the same mod on this one just to be safe..
Tail will need a bit of lov'n too I think..

MIne will be arriving tomorrow and I will get a full video review up ASAP along with the new spirit glider and I'll have the orange plane stabilizer up soon. I'll post here but check out my YouTube channel to stay tuned.

ArGh....not sure what's going on with my order, lot's of e-mails to me from bots, but not much is happening and it's been 7 days. Guess I expected a tad more activity since the items were in stock when I bought them.

What is the status of your order? I ordered mine one day after you, right now, my status shows that my kit was on the "JIT" truck being transported from the backend warehouse to the frontend warehouse to be packed and shipped.

ya, same message. Perhaps I've been lucky in the past, I've never waited this long for an in stock purchase to ship out. Of course it will be another two weeks to get here once it is shipped. I hate the waiting, but hate the $60.00 express shipping even more!

porcia83 (and anyone else for that matter). Let me know if you continue to have any problems with your orders and I'll see what I can do in the office.

We where out flying the B2 your saw in our video this weekend. Our non r/c members of staff are quickly learning the ropes with it, she clocked up 2 hours of flying on Saturday afternoon alone.

Can I ask, have any one received there's with the content damaged (bent tips etc)? We're working on improving the packaging and hopefully its working out on the B2.

I appreciate that. I think I've had pretty good luck with you guys so far, I know my items are coming but will let you know if there are quality issues.

Do you have video of the B2 flying?
