Spoke with Cliff tonight and he said any day now. His words were something like this.
"They are on a train now headed in my direction and if they aren't here and flying out the door by the end of the week I'm gonna fold up." Something along those lines anyway. He gave me some impromptu motor recommendations and was really accomodating considering how busy he must be. Thanks Cliff and hope to see you posting some good news here soon.

My brother called me and told me they showed up on the site earlier. He should be pressing the Buy Now button about right now. I'm right behind him. Have you had a chance to sample the ones you received?

Received my Mini with the Hi-Max package from Atlanta Hobby. It is one of the best looking ARF's I have seen. The build and covering are perfect. Mine did not have a ding or bump in it from shipping. I have a TNT landing gear that I ordered and received before the plane got here.
Off to the bench to build. Will let you know how it flys.
Thanks Cliff for getting it to me after I E-mailed you. Great service.

Hi Charlie,
I just received mine. Have the HiMax 2025-4200 with a 6.6:1 gearbox. ESC is a Castle Creations 25. I have yet to get the PH-Linx to work and be able to program the ESC on the computer instead of using the beep-flash method. When I first purchase it my ESC's were too old. This one must be too new (-: The servos are HS55's. Battery will be a Polyquest 2200 at 11.1V(3cell). Also have an aluminum landing gear that I bought from TNT Landing Gear ($22 plus shipping).

Walt,

Do you have the himax GB where you can change main gear?

If you do, go for the 5.5:1 setup with the same 12 x 6 prop.

Tim.

Thanks Tim. Will give it a try as soon as I get it built. Hard to believe we are exchanging ideas from Australia to RI. These forums are something else.

We just got in the newest Torque motors (260+Watts). Not up on the site yet but I think this will be the best all around performer.

Ran into a few problems with assembly of the Mini. Think I saw the problem with the wing bolt holes not lining up with the fuse holes mentioned on RC Groups. Also the bottom of the front fuse has square corners and the cowl is round. Anyone run into this and how did you solve it?

Big Brown stops here so often even if he does not have a package he toots and waves. I'm sure he thinks I am running a hobby shop out of my house.
You are going to love the construction job on the Mini.

Hi Cliff,

What are the specs for these?

i.e. internal resistance, no load current, kv?

Just a quick note that the second container load of aircraft docked November 30th. These are now in customs and should be to us in a few days so all colors will be back in stock next week intime for us to fill the big list Santa has given us.
