When I talked to the HH rep two days ago he said they still had plenty to pre order. So I would think you could get a first run from HH

your welcome

timing seems to depend on particular hobbyshop.
pilots on this thread have said their LHS say they will have them on 16th
some say will have on 19th or 20th.

since you didn't preorder couple of weeks ago--I am not sure how long it might take to ship from horizon---suppose you could call and ask. Perhaps someone who ordered a sbach3d after the preorder was done and shifted to backorder could tell you how long it took. From what I have read I think my preorder from horizon will get to me on 20th.

wholesale trains says after 11/20/12

edit: post above indicates plenty of preorder stilll

My LHS said they'll hit the US distribution centers on the 16th, and then get distributed before the Thanksgiving holiday...19 or 20 is likely.

This sounds right. I don't think HH will get them ready before the 16th. So looking forward to next week!

ha, can't wait too but German sellers not realease before the 29th !
Also the feedback here in our german bulletin board is still quiet so I assume I can order if available.
I checked our local dealer concerning lipo packs- we have SLS (500mAh, 52g) and Gens Ace (450mAh, 46g)--I think Gens Ace would be the best choice- light weight is the answer for all questions to have best performance in 3D flying.

Ok, I've read the manual four times, and watched the video seven times.

Is it here yet? How about now?

i can do all those with my umx beast 3d the knife edge spins r really tricky to get in to. i mostly end up doing inverted flat spins instead.

also, please don't confuse ULTRA micro with just plain micro planes

Just ordered batteries today. Unfortunately they're coming out of China since the US warehouse didn't have them in stock. Went with the Zippy Compact 500mah 35c.

I finally got over the whole "assembled plane won't fit in the original box" issue. If I have figured it right I can build a 24" X 24" box that it should fit pefectly in. Just so much easier to transport in the box.
