    I saw that too Casey.They must have gotten a decent number of them in as it doesn't say how many are left in stock yet. I really like mine.

      Motion has them again

          Mine, surprisingly, has shipped and will be here Sunday. I may bring it to the regatta and get it ready at the hotel, if I have room in the SUV. 8 pounds of weight needs to be added too. I’m bringing another target to sell, so room is going to be tight.

              You can make David twitch and shudder if you sail it anywhere near one of his Russian boats! :)

                Dave was playing with Steve’s last year buzzing underneath. Pretty fun to watch.

                      Mine was to be delivered by FedEx between 9:30 am and 4:30 pm. It arrived at 10:47…PM. I checked my email and up pops DELIVERED. I go to the front door and there it sits, half way off the porch. Not good to deliver that late.

                          Just check that box and packaging thoroughly for detached parts. I had to go back and check twice for parts that came off my tugboat. One was stuck to some packaging tape and I almost missed it. I will be curious to compare mine to yours. They may have upgraded the ESC.

                            Nothing missing. One ladder came lose and a hook detached from a rigging.

                              Very good. What is your overall impression of it?

                                Well, I fell in love the moment I saw yours. I built a Lindberg kit for RC decades ago. She didn’t like wind though. The Fletcher Class has always been my favorite ship. But I digress. I can’t find a thing I dislike, except the small battery.
