Welcome to Wattflyer Jay, Brian and Jason. Jason, I met you at the store several years ago and you were most helpful. I am sure you remember our conversation, right.

Hey guys Welcome aboard!

I just picked up one your little profile Yaks for my son for Christmas and we have really been having a blast with it! She is a great flying little bird.

Look forward to seeing you guys at SEFF again this year.

Welcome aboard guy's! When do we get the free stuff?
JK of course. It's good to have you here for everyone's benefit; yours, as you can see first hand what is good and what is not and ours as consumers, hopefully helping you tailor your business to better suit the needs and wants of fellow modelers.

Just call me X! (or Gary works, too.)
Another signature landing! Somebody help me find all the pieces...

Funny you should mention that... Every, and I mean EVERY, Fly in I have ever attended, (including ours) the raffle table is always very well stocked with Hobby Lobby products.

You guys rock in that arena too! Thanks for what you do to support this hobby!

I don't know who exactly pays for the stuff, but I know at least Horizon gives countless free complete airplanes with gear and batt to those "chosen few" who do the reviews at RCG. One of them got bent that others would actually comment on that, and referred to it as "slinging mud" on him. Heck, you guys can throw all the mud you want on me here, if I get all that free stuff.
He actually has been here lately using our For Sale Forums, possibly selling some of that stuff off. No posting though. There's a few of those types who have found us here to be good for that.

I would like to send a special THANKS to Bobby Mills at Hobby Lobby for his outstanding customer service. I had problems with a telemaster wing I received for Xmas and wrote HL about. No *****in, no griping, just an explaination of what was wrong. Bobby is sending me a replacement wing NO CHARGE and no return! How can you beat that! I'll always look to Hobby-Lobby first when ever I'm looking for planes or flight equipment. Thanks again HL!

Alright glad HL has there own sub Forum. I always enjoy talking to the HL folks. Jason was the first HL associate I met, SEFF 2007, and I have been pleased with their customer service ever since. Thanks for the great service guys. Welcome to WattFlyer.

May I add my welcome to Hobby Lobby as well. The customer service is first class and I look forward to the exchange of comments and ideas.
My most recent purchase is a long awaited HL Wedell Williams Pilot 1 ARF and so far I've been very pleased with the timely responce from HL regarding some questions I've had with this model. As the build progresses I've had a few very dissapointing issues with it that I hope to bring to their attention and resolve.

The links work fine. It takes you to the page where the battery is listed. They don't have their own page so it takes you to the airplane's page that the battery is used in and where it can be ordered. I know it looks weird, but that's what we had to work with.

Thanks,
Jason Cole

True. But you still cant see the stats for the battery.

'C' rating
Max disharge
weight

and so on...

The price seems awfully good, I just wanted to see if it had enough current to power my Yak.

I downloaded the manual for the F-16. It states the battery as a 20C.

Jason, Dont you guys have more info on the batteries that are on sale?
