Just kiddin dude. I only have one charger and by the time I get the batteries charged it's either dark or the wind is back. But I guess I'll just have to do my best and forget the rest.

Always great service, quick delivery and quality products. This company is a pleasure to deal with. I just wish they had more stuff I need, so I could order more often.

They are mechanical and they tend to collapse frequently if not adjusted out to about 110%. The wheels tend to bind. Just not very good all around. I think the new e-flites would be the ticket. ...

New E-flite retracts

Anyone tried putting a pair of the new e-flite retracts on this bird yet? Do you think it could be done with that bent wing. It sure would be a perfect bird with retracts!
