SWEET!!!
be sure to call me so I can come pick mine up ASAP!!!
I just called Graphtech and he is waiting for the mold to fully set-up ( a couple days) and will be cranking out gear... I was hoping to pick one up from you guys when I picked up the plane - maybe not. Oh well. And how about the CF tubes?? Will you guys be having them express-shipped from china?

We are trying to get the tubes as fast as we can but china is also still in the final processes of molding them and then they will be on a container with wing bags and more Extra's. We wil definatly give you a call once they hit our door. I just hope the snow stays away long enough so the container can be unloaded without any problems.

Oh, I thought Rocco was going to air ship the tubes to get them here ASAP? At least the Gear aren't too far away - that should cut 12 onces right there...still, CF tubes in a couple weeks would be better than a couple months, no? Heck, I'll help absorb the shipping cost, as it's worth an extra $30-50 in shipping for me to get the tubes before the maiden instead of after, cuz if the BME makes a rocket of this plane with stock tubes, I will be less inclined to purchase them, as will others, I think.

Hello, Dennis. What is the best way to be informed as to when the 260s are in town? Phone #? E-mail ? Signal flares? Thanks , Tom in Littleton.

Once they are in we will inventory and check the planes but you will be notified by either a phone call and or e-mail. I will also have it posted here as to when they are shipping.

What about my CF tube question??? I talkied to Rocco about 3 weeks ago and he said that he would air-mail the tubes if he had to to get them here in time. If that is no longer the case, would you/he consider a Drop-ship order from your supplier to me so I can get them sooner than by boat???

And now??? For them to come in today would be perfect because tomorrow is the best day for me to drive up, with the exception of friday...My wife wants to buy me something for my B-day, too, and that little Edge is looking tempting[8D]

Don't you worry about that! I have my radio and all servos basically programmed, all servo arms installed, my custom tank set up, my standoff and drill jig for the engine done, and anything else I could have done is probably done...

Bodyworks, looks like my workbench in my shop! I don't feel so crazy after all. I too got my 260 today. Where did you get the internal switches with the '' remove before filght " flags? Cool. I am going to use a 9c tx .... not my E-Flite transmitter like yours, though. will stay tuned for flight test reports. Tomswrld

Yeah, I really like the feel of the e-flite Tx, it will make the 260 fly much better
Those are Fromeco super regulated reliaswitches...

I hear that E-Flite is coming out with a 14 1/2 channel TX soon, about the same time as Horizons 1.50 P-47 ARF
