Just got email from Ronlund.com saying kits should be shipping June 14th. Any truth to this. I have one on preorder and if want it I need to call tomorrow and pay for it.

He did not specify if they are FBL or old school gassers, assume it might be both versions?

FBL gasses are the only kits available at this time.

Why would you not believe the email?

No it's not man. It is an upper end Heli, not a cookie cutter Asian Heli.

Well I didn't get to call and buy it since I'm at work. So may have to wait for next shipment to come.

I paid just over $1000 for my spectra without blades or engine. That was probably 8 years ago now. Doesn't seem too bad of a price to me with inflation and it is hopefully a better heli.

BTW, I can't find them now for some reason, but Carey Shurley has done a build series on the gasser that's fantastic. I watched them before getting my electric and he points out a lot of nice tips and other little issues you might run into; most of it applies to the electric too so they were really valuable to me already.

Hell mine's almost done and I've only made 2 major mistakes in the build lol. That's pretty good for me...

Ah excellent, I knew I saw them on here somewhere....
Tho structurally it's all done and I'm about out of parts, just putting the radio stuff in now.

Carey's videos sure help a lot....

DTS sure makes the setup a hell of a lot easier lol. I don't want to build any more bellcrank helis now....

If everything goes right I might be able to maiden it by this evening.

what clunk are you guys using? my zenoah felt clunk is too big to fit in the tank.......... I got it in there, but not before I cracked the tank seam, I repaired it with "seals all" (I hope it works). pretty much all done except extending the tail servo wire and dialing in the gy701 and ar7200bx.

Also when you balance do you have a half tank of fuel? I am balancing empty with 2100mah life and I come up 10 oz. tail heavy.... so do I just figure the 15 oz. fuel will level it out or do I get a 10 oz. heavier battery?

Rule is to balance with 1/2 tank of fuel... So how was the Whiplash to build. Still haven't received any thing if mine has shipped or not. I've had it on pre-order since October 2011...
