Anyone know if there is a way of identifying which is the final revision from the previous ones ? This is the third ? Are they marked in some way perhaps ?

Yes just to let all of you guys know the new hubs have been being shipped, and all new kits will have the new hub in it. So worry not about buying a kit. If for some odd reason the kit does not come with the new hub simply contact me and I will get you taken care of. Just make sure to have the receipt on hand and all will be well.

Brian

Build it, fly it, crash it. Repeat as often as needed.

Same as ^ Should we replace a trusted old hub, or hang back ?

Whoo hooo - my replacement, blue striped hub has just been driven up my driveway way down here in little old New Zealand. Its already done about 20 hours flying before it even gets on my RAVE

Thanks Brian, Curtis and the team at NEXT D. Premium customer response and service. The network works!!!

Hi Bizzin Brian, just a note to let you know that I received my ENV flybarless kit today from AMAIN Hobbies, and it appears that it contains the old tub. I know it's late. So I will call CYE tomorrow to request a replacement. Thanks for all the help you do. Rich

Rich,

I thought I saw a new hub sitting in the shipping department for you. Did we get you taken care of?

Yes, Brian. That hub was probably mine. I called this morning, and they're sending me one out. Thanks, Rich
