I talked to Mac at Aeroacemods last week and he said the weren't due for a while. I sent a e-mail about availability on sat after seeing the pic's. He e-mailed back that is not supposed to be available yet. I let him know about the pics. So hopefully he'll log on and tell us what's up.Tim

i was at toys r us yesterday, they didnt have the jets yet. but, they did have the AA on sale for 20 dollars. how could i pass it up? i dont know if target or wallmart will be carrying them, but it wouldnt be surprising if they did, it just might take a while for them to get them.

its not surprising the Jets are in california, its a big place with lots of money. us smaller states might have to wait a while. i remember when the AAs first started filtering into the US, we here in minnesota didnt get them for a couple months after some other states already had them. fortunately for me, i have no patience for waiting like that and had bought the X-Twin bipe/mono wing from ebay before the AAs really even got to the US.

give it another month and they'll probably be everywhere. untill then, it wouldnt be hard to make your own jet, tons have been made already

Well took it out, little too windy but its alot faster than the 05 AA. Wants to nose up and go high but with the wind it was really hard to tell. Bigger propellars than the AA. Turns are sharper. Did I mention its fast?? Gonna take some getting used to flying it. Not like flying the AA, whole different experience in my opion..

By the way I picked mine up in Pleasant Hill, Ca. Good luck finding em!!!
Forgot to mention that when I got it to the register the bar code wouldn't ring up and the attendant had to look for the price and just my luck too, all the AHs where on sale 33% so out the door I paid $20.09..

I bought mine at our local T r Us yesterday and they had them for 33% off. $20.09 out the door The only thing I dont like about it is that it wants to do loops and crash. I will post after I tweak it more.[&:]

I have a pic of mine in my profile gallery so check it out!

Nice pic. thanks. The props are in the wing? The transitter looks the same as the AeroAce. Same frequency? Will it double to use with the Aero Ace?. Good Flying!!! Hope to see them soon in Washington.

Still lovin my AA Jet. Took it to the park this afternoon and it flew great without the wind. Have noticed that the wind will take it away from you. It glides better than the AA. I've even been able to do a couple of tricks with it.

I would not loose any sleep over the jet. In even the slightest breeze it lofts like leaf though in dead calm I am having a bit more fun with it. I con't believe that we would get it in al ittle town like OLYmpia Washington before you guys do. Must be the store buyers that make the difference.
