          You know I am not too much of a scale snob to enjoy something like this. I bet it would be terribly stress free and fun.

            When will it be in stock. It seems like all the skynetic stuff is out of stock

              This is not an official on the record for ETA as I do not know for sure but I did hear that it was possible a container could be coming in this or next week.

                Does said container whenever it comes includes the skynetic shrike glider? I have a friend who I’m trying to get into Rc and he was set on getting the glider right when it went out of stock. I saw this yesterday and told him about it but he might go for the glider anyways.
