    Okay, would love Roban to do an R-22 or R-44, don't see many of those around, specially the R-44.

      Hey Ed (eawings) - any news on shipments from Roban? And any chance at all that unpainted options will be offered on any of the scale helis, specifically the B407?

        I asked about a shipment as well but the answer I got was, we don't know when it will arrive but we did place an order, I find it strange that a company like MRC places an order of thousands of dollars of merchandise and has no idea where this order is or when it will be shipped....,

          Yep and they also can’t tell you what items will be arriving on the next shipment either. I got tired of waiting and started ordering direct from Roban. I’ve had no problems receiving shipments directly from their factory in China.

            I tried but never got response, so I’ve ordered from Scaleflying.

              Same result here. Answer is always 4 months. Almost looking like MRC just wants to sell the remaining stock of Roban product.

                It does take a while to get a reply to an email and sometimes I’ve had to send 2 emails to get a response.

                  I emailed Roban about a 5 rotor blade set for 600 size yesterday (OOS for months at MRC) and got a response asking for my complete shipping address within several hours. Thanks for the heads up, lt1pwr!

                    Maybe I used the wrong email then. Roban never responded to my request.

                      I used the “Contact Us” form on their website.

                          Got the invoice from Roban last night for the 5 blade set and it’s ordered. This MD-500E 600 may defy gravity after all.

                            Oh good deal, looks like we will have to order directly from the factory to get what we need, I will give it a try as well, wonder what shipping will be for a 800 or 700 size kit, anyone know.?? Got my eye on the gray 700 Cobra..

                              Well, the invoice for my 5 blade 600 size set was $100USD for the blades, $92USD for shipping, and $10USD for PayPal, so $202 driveout. Have no idea how they plan to ship yet.

                                Sorry Gents, (Marsh),

                                That's really all I can tell you. We have really placed a tall order with Roban for most of our out of stock kits, parts and upgrades. We were told that they could come up in fulfilling 2 full container loads and requested to break it down in 4. They just do not have the space and manpower to do it. So it'll be 1 container for each month is what they committed to us.. We are not being provided a listing by Roban as well, until such time a container is ready to ship out. I also have an order placed for the latest EC-130 Kits in 4 color schemes.

                                And for (swampd32618) - Marsh, I will try to ask Roban for the B407 gelcoat. ( Although we do not normally carry white gelcoat kits).I refrained from carrying them in our inventory due to my past experiences with Roban (hairline cracks appears after shipment and we get stuck with it).

                                Ed.

                                  When I bought my 800 size Airwolf kit the total with shipping was $1,709.17. The breakdown of the charges was something like $500 for shipping and the balance was the price of the kit.
