it was 39.99 plus tax (only because i live in Idaho)
it sounds quieter than the airhogs to me also. maybe because the props are away from the wings...

have you atleast done power throws in your living room or garage or whatever??? becuase i want to know exactly how fast/slow this thing is. they make it sound like its supposed to be real slow on the back of the box.

charging right now
interesting thing, it has a throttle initiation on the tx, you can't fly it until you push the stick up once and back down. safty feature I guess.
came with the spare props too woohoo!
arg, its raining cats and dogs of coarse :/

well, haven't really gotten a chance to fly it today I tried but it was still too windy.
im pretty sure the battery is the same capacity as the aa but maybe a little longer.

The Black Ghost heli also has that "feature."

That is one amazing looking plane. Looking forward to hearing your flight report.

the starscream also has that, reminds of the auto-calibration some hobby grade planes have.
