I see Hobby Lobby also has a "7x5" sale going on: http://www.hobby-lobby.com/7x5-wk1.htm

Polyquest lipos on sale this week. Still kinda pricey compared to eBay or Hobbycity. Good batteries though.

Maybe they will put more $25 Lynxs on sale for the 7x5 sale.

You can never have too many of those planes. Especially if you are me. I lapparently like to lawn dart them between 115 and 131mph.

I've noticed that some of the items they list in the Crash Sale, eventually end up in the Bargain Bin for even less. The pink F-18 for example is now $10 less than it was in Crash Sale.

Yep, I just picked up one of the pink F-18 RTFs from my LHS for $179. It's not "salmon pink" like their ad says, it's OMG pink! I'm either going to put some new nose art with two broke back cowboys riding a dolphin on it or give it a new paint job. OK...a new paint job it is.

C'mon tom.....

Even though they did something good for breast cancer, its prob hard for some guys to own a pink plane. If your secure enough in your manhood it should be no problem.....

or you can just paint it

Maybe I can sell it to Chellie. I'm very secure in my manhood Dave but a paint job is still in order.

Has anyone who bought the Ikarus Pitts S1-S last month finished building it yet? Mine is almost ready to fly! Just have to get the prop, ESC and battery attached and it will be good to go.

Not sure what my AUW is, but I think its on the heavy side. I didn't use the included brushed motor, so hopefully the extra power of the outrunner will make up for it.

Did anybody buy the $15 helicopter? I couldn't find any useful info on it but I looked at the little video and thought it would be worth the three fins.
Now, I realize you get what you pay for but I bought a tiny rtf heli at Toledo for $15 and I've had a ball with it. So we'll see.
I noticed it sold out pretty quick so someone knows something. Any Wattflyers bite?

It's easy to be wise. Just think of something stupid to say and then don't say it.

I bought the $15 heli. It will be my first Heli. What they don't tell you though, is that you need a specific made-by-Ikarus-only "Piccoboard"........ Which is $79 and " AVAILABLE SOON"

Sweet, I've been reading a ton of stuff about Piccolos. Seems I may have gotten in over my head with this thing. I'll definitely get that. But I can see this thing taking over, I'm already thinking about CP upgrades, brushless, scale bodies, etc........

Great! Welcome to your next addiction BTW, I bought 3 of the kits - makes a good knock-around for the living room.

Well that piccoboard business is certainly a drag. I guess I just figured I'd only have to supply the usual stuff,e.g. servos, rx, esc, and battery. And I already have that stuff laying around. But I can see that the tail rotor uses a separate motor and I guess you need the "board" to plug both motors into the esc.
Like vax, this is my first heli and I can see I've got a lot of reading up to do.
Rush, thanks for steering us to a cheaper board. Any issues adapting the allerc board? If I use a brushless motor, will I also have to use brushless in the tail? I don't think they make one that small.

It's easy to be wise. Just think of something stupid to say and then don't say it.
