Are there any set up sheets available to download except from the Serpent website which only has the default set up and a blank set up sheet.
Not really wanting to suggest another forum site but perhaps we could get a sticky for set up sheets and advice in the Serpent section of Oople or Petitrc as it seems thast it's not really practicle on RCtech.

Alright, enough of this being torn BS. I'm sending back the RC8.2e and ordering the 811e. There is just no comparison to any other buggy out there. This one is far and away, much better than the rest of the currently available offerings at the moment.

Now, Where to order from. Amain is ok, but I'm in cali and the sales tax they have to charge me is BS. I pay enough taxes to this state and I refuse to pay more than they already take from me. I guess I'll look at stormer. I think those are the only two places that sell it.

There was a post a couple pages back where a guy got a killer deal on fri.

Just placed an order with Stormer. It's 514.95 shipped. Time to send back the .2e and sell off the Eco

The serpent is such an awesome design. Even the DEX408 is in it's shadow. The design innovation on this 811 has me sold. Cant waith to get it!

I bet we'll likely get our kits at about the same time. I think we should post up and monitor how efficient Stormer's logistics is since we placed our orders close together. It would be a great way for others to see the quality of his operation.

I cant wait to get the kit and start expirimenting with electronics. I have a few different tekin motors and differnt voltages of lipos to try. I'm going to start with 6s lipos and (dual 3s actually) and then 4s (dual 2s) with the appropriate Tekin motors.

3s soft case will fit, but there are some 3s 3000 mah harcase lipos out there also. I'll likely end up with the 1900 and dual 4000mah 2s packs. That should be a fairly powerful setup without excessive weight. I have a nano tech 6000 mah 2s that weighs about 400g (.8lbs) and some 4000 mah hardcase zippys that weigh 230g (about .5 lbs).

3s 3300 mah 40C (342g or .75lbs) 27$ea



vs

2s 4000 mah 25c (230g or .5lbs) 19$ea



I have some Gens Ace 30C that I'll use to start off with

Sorry to hear about your accident. I hope you have a speedy recovery! Gotta be safe out there, we never know what's going to happen on the roads. Was it snowing in your area?

Hope things get better for u porkchop

Look what I got from stormer

We see you ordered a Serpent S811e just after we lowered the price last week in preparation for Cyber Monday to $499.95. *We just wanted to let you know those were dropped again to $497.95 for Cyber Monday and we are changing the price for you to the $497.95 price on your order.
<p>
The processing staff gets here in 6 hours, and it will be some time after that, today. *The order will ship today.
