And the winner is…

Despite a 14-day top end for delivery, the Hobbyking parcel arrived this morning. Only been unboxed so far- here are a few pics:

The postcard is for scale. That’s a 12-inch diameter, 3 bladed prop. The prop fitting kit is very nicely machined and the spinner is a nice finishing touch; not bad for an extra $3 on top of the cost of the motor.

Sadly, batteries don’t have a connector compatible with the charger (despite being the same brand), and I forgot to order the connectors for the speed controller, so more than just a little assembly will have to wait.

Signing off.
