Default Extreme Flight RC - Where are the planes?

I have an 85" Extra on backorder.

Has anyone actually recieved one?

I am not really complaining. I know that when a new plane is promised in June, that it may not really arrive until July, or August, or . . .

Just wondering, are they in? Does anybody have one?

Leonard..

Late July is when the Extra is expected.
The SARS epedemic is China got things behind schedule.

To my knowledge, Chris has not charged anyone's CC or deposited a check yet. he is waiting till he knows the planes are on their way here to officailly take any deposit money.

I guess you should just feel lucky that they would let you preorder one...I finally gave up and bought a different plan. Looks like you will have one of the nicest (sometime)available.

I gave Chris my name and asked him to put me on the waiting list. But he has not charged my CC or sent me anything confirming a place on the waiting list.

BTW does anybody know if there is a wait on a DA-50?

Dave at DA told me no wait. This was about a week ago.

Apparently there is a wait on a DA50. I ordered mine a week ago today, and they said they were waiting on 1 more part for the next shipment.
DA still has not charged my credit card. I will call them first thing Monday morning to see what is up.

A few words from the horse's mouth- the first shipment of aircraft is due to leave China in the next 2 weeks. As any manufacturer will confirm, the SARS epidemic wreaked havoc in China, especially in our industry. Can you imagine screening 300+ workers on a daily basis?
I have taken many orders for these aircraft but have yet to charge a single credit card. I have had my money tied up for months with other ARF manufacturers and I refuse to do this to my customers. Once I receive the documentation that my container of aircraft is on the water I will charge the $100 deposit to your credit card, with the balance being charged on the day the aircraft ship.
To those who have had trouble reaching me on the phone, I apologize. I am running a one man show at this time and it is impossible to be in the office full time until the aircraft arrive. There is a lot of behind the scenes work required to make all this happen. I have not posted my phone number on the website yet for this very reason. I will have full-time help once the aircraft arrive and we will keep regular business hours beginning mid July.
To those who have placed orders-thank you very much and please don't lose faith. Your patience will be rewarded with the best flying ARF aircraft on the market.
Best Regards,
Chris Hinson

Chris,
Have all the Edge 540 Profile ARF's been spoken for on the first shipment? If there will be some available, I am interested in one. What is the best way to get lined up to receive one when they ship?

Thanks,
Edward

Hey Chris! I'd also like to know the status of the Yak. Is it still due in September? If we miss out on this order, when would you expect another shipment?

Ok. You want an avatar? If you do I'll fix one up for you. How about a hog to match your name?

Hello fellow Arkansans. What towns are you guys located?

I live down in TX now but visit AR quite often for family.
