Some people got them. I see a few videos in Y-tube. I guess the first run was sold out, or cut short due to some issue?

Yep, I did a search on YouTube and found a few videos. Not very many however.

Wish a well-known reviewer would do a review!

There was a problem with the factory mold process and Proboat QC caught it, and so that caused the delay. Hopefully they will be arriving next month.

Ah! That makes sense! Was there a hull issue or what?

Looks like the release date got pushed back even further to late April.

I think I'll stick with my Cajun Commander for the time being.

Dang! That's going to make a lot of people mad and want to cancel their preorder.

The boat looks great but I feel like HH let themselves down on this one, as they released it and had talk and excitement about it, then 6 months later it's still not in stock. I know they can't help the mold issue thing but just is a bummer!

So I wonder who will be the first to try to convert theirs to twin prop: https://i.pinimg.com/originals/85/b3...c928b12e1b.jpg

I received Aerotrooper and I will have photos on Monday the 29th.

6 months waiting for the Aerotrooper, but it is really beautiful and special.

What? You gotta apply your own decals!? For $229? Deal-killer.

Just kidding. Can't wait for the real-world videos. Hope you have a blast with it.

I have applied some decals and assembled the guns and gun mounts. The screwdriver included in the bag of parts did not fit the screws, lol. But I have plenty of micro screwdrivers so no big deal. Pro Tip: Start the screws into the holder first, to make some threads. Then back out and mount the gun. It is very fiddly getting those tiny screws through the guns mounting hole into the support rod.

I will be removing the guns to paint them. Also I think it would be a good idea to remove them when running the model. First flip over, and they will be destroyed along with the mounts.

Lipo used!
Reaction HD 14.8V 5000mAh 50C LiPo 4S, Hard Case: EC5 (DYNB3804EC)

I purchased the Aerotrooper 25 "Brushless Airlift (PRB08034).

After 6 months of waiting, I was still hoping to get it.

I will add an LED, I think!
I have a police officer Bruder, who could drive the Aerotrooper.
More images to come.
