I show tracking numbers everywhere Nigel has posted.

Also, for small US warehouse orders, you also have the option of USPS shipping. I don't order bulky stuff, so my orders always go USPS Priority.

I typically only order from the US locations now. If one of those two locations don't have it, I don't need it.

Recently placed an order with the Ease Warehouse. Showed up in 3 days.

Looks like a 10A ESC to me and probably a 1A BEC. I used to use a bunch just like it in my mini pusher jets. Looks like 2mm bullets to the motor.

I'll second www.motionrc.com and the Freewing line of 80mm and 90mm jets. Great quality right out of the box, no need to strip and replace servos, fans, ESCs, retracts, etc.

Motor
Electronic Speed Control (ESC)
Receiver (RX)

Battery

The motor is obvious.
