Well I just got my Airwolf yesterday, after being 4 days late,Thanks(TEAMWORLD) With one horz.fin broke AND a half ass job putting it togeather.Oh well, $4 grand I guess you have to trust people in this world and take them for their word some times, but I guess I should have went with my gut feeling and not went for this deal. It will take me almost a month to get this "READY TO FLY , JUST PUT THE HEAD ON AND GO FLY" So just a warning to everyone, when you here these words said, take an extra second and think you might be sending money to a HOW SHOULD I PUT THIS---I'LL BE NICE AND JUST SAY A------ JOKE!!!!!!!! THANKS

Well, I just came from the reno fun fly, and what a show! I also found out that my air wolf was already broken[horz. tailfin] I meet Joseph from vairo and he sad that this guy wanted to buy a new fin 5 weeks before I bought it. Just goes to show you that you never trust any smooth talker! I bought the heli for 3600 and I sent him all the raido gear. Team World was the shipper. The seller wanted to use this carrier. It cost $350.00 to ship.I dont know how much it cost but I cant beleive it would be that much. I need to put him on the bad boys list.Never buy from this guy!!!!

Hi Keith

Sorry to hear about the airwolf episode. When you spend that kind of money, it's a shame to go through that experience.

It was nice to meet you at reno event this past weekend. I'm the guy with the Schiechzer 300 and my friend had the Notar Defender.

Good luck with the airwolf recovery.

Hi Keith ... I've built and shipped a few Airwolfs (VARIO CARBON) Shipping for a complete ready to fly runs around $400 in the Crate. I have a few extra Fins (If your talking about the outside fins that go on the horizontals) I make mine from 1/8 ply! They hold up better and don't distort like the CF ones. Don't know who built yours but that price is Fair if it was for Helo and Gasser Mechanics With Engine ready to fly! (NEW!!) if this was used that price should be complete ready to fly with Gyro and servos! (No transmitter) Depending on condition .... I have seen The Big AirWolf go for as much as $5500 Ready to fly with the JR8103 .... so pick and choose carefully.

Hey, Dr. Tim, All n all I sure like the looks of it !! I guess if I have to replace one fin I might as well do both.I just found out that 1 of the retrack servo's is junk too. It works some time,and some times it don't. I can't have that on this baby.Some how I have to put the set screw, that attachs to the landing gear to the main rod!!!! Hell, there's no room to get your fingers in there to put it in! Oh well I know I can figure it out some how. Seeea ya soon
