Hens teeth easier to find than the 109


I thought it would be easy to order an Astro 109 lithium charger from the US while my father is on vacation in Florida. Guess I was wrong, unless you guys know who is stock-piling them!!

you could do what I have done. Buy a Astro 110DX and order the LiPo chip and convert it yourself. The 109 face plate is only $10.00 & the chip is $25.00. It a little more expensive than buying a 109 but you can have it now.

I have been told that another batch has been released... I know ours will be shipping next week, so I would gather other suppliers should start showing up with them soon as well.

Astro 109


Try Toddsmodels.com. I know he still had a few last Sunday. He also had a Whattmeter and a bunch of megas and Himaxxx brushless motors.

Astro usualy has some good deals at Toledo on "Scratch and dent sales". Last year they had 110's for $75.00. I am hoping for a good deal on the 109 this year.

BIG SCORE!!!


I just got mine in from Esprit...

I called just to see how long it would be. ZB told me that he has a standing order for them and they all sell by the time they arrive. He gets a handful everyweek. I ordered mine 2 weeks ago assuming a long wait and it arrived yesterday!

Thanks Esprit! (Hope it was not a secret ZB)

Well the problem with that would be .I already ordered mine ,soon it will be two months.

So they are supplying the Hobby Shops first or what?Hey maybe you can send me one then tell astro or Sal at NE Sail to give you the money

Ill keep you in mind next Time though.Something should have been up on the N E Sail site saying that it would be Drop Shipped from the factory.I could have got it from elsewhere that had em in stock at the time Never Again!!!

Sorry to seem so mad but the more warm calm evenings that go by the madder Im getting,I got planes To fly not a UPS man to waite on,or even wondering if the order is going thru...
Please forgive me.....

Simple. Order from battlepacks and cancel the order you already have. This way you'll get one in a week.
