Toys r us is supposed to get them as well. They will have a different name and be marketed under the brand name rc fastlane.

Just got mine from Thinkgeek.com. Flown it twice so far. Nice little flyer! Make sure to trim it before trying to get fancy with it. It DOES FLY. So far I have noticed it needs a fairly dark room or outside. I get about 5 minutes on a charge as the package states. It's a little more durable than I thought it would be but still, be careful with it. It's not a really tough plane. I got a blue one, when the plane is turned on a red LED blinks in the "cockpit". It charges in about 10 minutes. I DO wish they used sticks instead of the "pads" on the TX for control as I'm used to sticks but you get used to it. Worth the money? Yes IMHO. First timers should fly it outside on dead calm early evenings AFTER the Sun goes down.

just got mine today--it is very hard to fly thus far. I have tried in my family room--maybe I need more space or something, I just seem to crash it time after time.

Mine got here today as well. I trimmed it out right away and it flies great so far. I have a pretty small living room but I did get a few laps in before turning too wide. Not a bad 22 bucks I guess....the cat loves it!

Yes. The rudder itself is what's important.

Mine has been doing the "death spiral" thing. I tried adding a strip of paper to block some of the rudder movement but it still sticks.
So far I'm not happy with this plane.

On a better note, I just got the Aerosoar and like it a LOT better even though flight times are 15-20 seconds. I can fly it easily in my 12'x18' living room!

Hi everyone! I got my Palm-Z at Wal Mart last week for 20$. It fly o.k but too much tail heavy to me. So I stick 2 plastic button about the size of a dime on each side of the fuselage, just in front of the lower wing and now it fly like a charm but need larger room space. Best 20$ ever spend!
