I ordered one from WalMart a month ago but still have it listed with an October delivery date. Since we haven't need many posts about flying them, I suspect they aren't generally available anywhere yet.

I just hope Target packaged mine well, I hope it isn't beating around in its brown box as we speak...

I couldn't resist, so I placed an order through target. It's now in the "preparing for shipment" phase.

I finally got one at TRU plus a battery pack. I'd say that at least two batteries are a necessity.

4-5 flights on mine and broke one of the cross members connecting the 2 pontoons. Lots of hard landings though. Very tough aircraft. Only major downside is the power from the motors. Mine has to use 30-40 feet of runway to lift off and can only stay in the air for 10-12 seconds, loosing altitude all the time.

ive only been driving mine on the ground 8-10 charges, and the plastic on the bottom is starting to get ripped up, it stays in the air nicely but i have too small of an area to do it in, i like hopping and jumping off of curbs.

Ine doesnt seem to have enough power to fly either... Does anybody know wats wrong? My right motor is also way more powerful than the left one. One more question...Is there any replacement props aviable?

you might be giving it too much up try getting it to max speed then slowly adding elevator until it takes off. See if it can stay in the air. If not you may have a faulty battery (one of mine is bad but just worse than my other) also, if you just got it try to condition the engines first. Any advice on halting the plasstic disintegration? its starting to get at the foam now and electrica tape makes too much friction.
