Anybody know where may have any of these fuses in stock right now. It seems like their sold out of the most popular stores. I did find one on ebay in Taiwan but they want 30 bucks for shipping.

Anyone know where there may be some in stock?

Good Luck.. I bought the last one from http://www.fxaeromodels.com and seems that they are on back order in every store known to man. Infinity-hobby.com has them and they are in Taiwan and I believe they have warehouses in CALI.. http://www.infinity-hobby.com/main/...roducts_id=2249

It looks like they have the OD green and the one with the blue tail but it figures I want the red tail version.

Just my luck.

Hughes 500E
I'm sitting in Tokyo (Narita to be exact) I just got in from Singapore. I went to 8 different Hobby Shops and was able to find ONE green 500E. Because it has a drab finish...ie not clear coated I don't think it will be hard to sand out, re prime and paint to a nice paintjob.

More work but it will get you in the air. I've talked to other pilots that get into Taiwan regularly and they say they can't find the things there.

Aligns OD green is not the same as the US OD green. Their green kinda like that of a pine tree air freshener. I primed mine and plan to spray it with US Military spec OD Green tonight.

Rjh..

Thanks for the heads up....was able to pick one up too.
Will pu the red one on a t-rex and use the green one I got in Singapore for a mold when (not if) I prang the "good" one.
With the limited availability of these fuselages it might make sense to have a spare.

Addendum to this story: Even though it said "In Stock" I didn't get it after all and am on a waiting list for the next shipment. Most likely, I ordered while someone else was ordering and by the time my "buy" order went in, they were out of stock. (sounds like my stock trades) Anyway, moral of story is don't cancel from another vendor until you get the UPS tracking number in hand. I did, and lost my place at another store.
