    I went to a hobby shop to pick up a few parts for the copter and as soon as I walked in the door I saw it...They had a Firehammer sitting on the counter and a Baja on a shelf.....They are BIG!

    The urge is getting harder to control

    SMaxxin,

    Well you're done. Trust me it won't be long now until you get one. I got sucked in just from viewing this site - you're viewing the site and seeing them in person. Good luck my friend and be sure to let us know which one you end up getting!

    Honestly, after driving my 5B Im done with nitro. Ill still do my electric racing like I have always done but no more nitro. I sold all 6 of them in the last few weeks. 4 of them to buy the 5B and the other 2 just because I don't want the hastle of nitro any more. 15 years of fiddle farting around with bumble bees was enough. I now have a MANS toy.

    i sold my nitros to get a 5b and i don't miss them at all. its was the best thing i could have done. once there set up. just pull the rope and go. only thing that u have to stop for is gas about every 45 minutes. in the last 9 months i turned my low speed 1 time about 1/8 of a turn.

    I had 7 nitros when I bought the Baja and now I have 1 left to tinker with but I have not touched it since September.I sold the other 6 to get hop ups for my Baja.
    Just buy it you will love it sooooo much more than your nitros.I have had more fun with my Baja than anything I have owned to date.

    Make sure you snap a lot of photos of the F1. Im into on road big but there is no one that has the F1 for me to look at.

    I hope there are some at the Pomona show next month.

    :eek:mg:


    I am amazed that you even walked out of the shop without it...

    I think if you had asked the shop owner to fire her up you would have been carrying a large box out with you

    I know there will be total lack of will power if I go down to Indiana to large scale rc and check out the MCD's.
