The postman came today with a gift for me I can't believe how fast I get stuff from some of the good dealers you guys have in the states. Ordered friday, came today. It usually takes much longer to get stuff from the major online store here in Canada....

I'm jumping all around waiting for my postman... I'm counting the minutes. I think I'll put a sticker on my postbox stating "free coffee to whoever brings my spartan" lol

How is it that Readyheli had them on Friday and the other shops have not received them?
Is Readyheli the distributer for the U.S?

Sorry

Mark Weber is the USA Retailer. I guess readyheli is closer to them so they got the shippment first. Maybe Mark should clear this up?

A-main received them, but they were sold already, so it's no use to show them in stock.

Your best bet is to get on the list for one, so when they come into stock, you are one of the first to know, and can purchase one immediately.

I can only tell you this: We distribute to retailers as well as retail Spartan products ourselves. As such, the shops that purchase from us received their orders a couple days after we got the gyros.

I don't know why a main would tell you that. Mine shows shipped status. I got the email that it had arrived at a main Monday at 8 pm.

Too bad I don't have a heli... crashed last sunday and still rebuilding.

Where is everybody mounting theirs on the 600N? Front or back?

Thats obvious lol

I was just thinking in terms of:

- dirt;
- vibration (maybe more because of the torque tube?);
- needing to remove it to change output gears;

Any idea? I'll promise to tell everyone at the field I have one so that doesn't need to count as a plus/minus for the mount position

tony, my own 600n the gyro is mounted on rear as normal. i use NO metal plate and a single "futaba" pad with it that comes int he box. no issues. also remember when you mount it to put it on a slight angle so you can get the pc in!

cheers
