Anybody carry them without a shipping delay ?.

Somewhere I've read it takes some time to get one, true ?.

They seem to sell out pretty regularly, but check with Aero Model in Tempe, AZ. www.aero-model.com

To tell you the truth..... it will be really hard for a while..... FVK is breaking up and till the breakup is through I don't think that they are going to be shipping any kits..... I had to jump through hoops to get mine.....

I called Aero-Model last week and was lucky enough to be calling when they got a Bandit shipment in. They told me they had to fill the backorders first, but they would put me on their list and if they had enough planes they'd fill my order. I followed up the next day and found out they had enough and had shipped the plane. Now to decide between the B40 8S or B40 10S...

My point...give them a call ASAP and you might be lucky enough to grab one. I'd also check with New Creations RC if you strike out at Aero-Model.

Good luck,

About FVK, I just spoke with Stefan formally from FVK. I ordered a Mini Graphite from him a few days ago. He isn't taking credit cards yet so I sent him a personal check. I don't know if he's going to handle the Bandits or the other gentlmen but it doesn't hurt to email Stefan and ask. Try to keep it simple, as he doesn't speak English very well.

Thanks, I just called and left a message on their machine (they must be busy), I'll give them an hour, then I gotta hit the sack.
OK, an hour and a half.

Got my fingers crossed.....

Nope, no luck at Aero, I'll try NC in the morning.

There's a guy in Melbourne Australia who bought a few too many, who I know has shipped to the US. Check ebay australia (don't forget the .com.au Item # 1781303574 . He packages a prop and spinner - good value last I looked.

Current exchange rate is A$1 = about US$0.55

Man, the Bandit on ebay is off the charts! There is over 4 days left. I would find a different model first. For that price just get a Falcon and save the trouble. I hope the supply gets back in order. I am groovin on mine --------Mike

Oh sure Mike, rub it in.

Ya, I think I'll give Aero-Model a call back and get my name on their waiting list.

I did not mean it like that! Aero-Model will put you on the list. I wanted a Silent dream 2.5 and they called me when they came in. I had already spent my coin as I thought it would be a long time before it came in. It was only about a week. Give them a call they have always been great to work with.
RCK congrats on the auction! The Falcon is a sweet one. It is more money though. The Caleb from nesp is a great bargin also, it has no bad habits (smart). I think the Bandit is the best buy I have seen at $169 but the Caleb is 2m and is on speacial for (I think) $239. Esirit has the Nike for $159. It is not as sturdy as the Bandit but, I hear they fly good. Good luck -------Mike
