Guys, go to RC Champ for a better deal.
I ordered one shipped and delivered EMS for less than RC Markets advertised price with our dollar at a lower value earlier this week.
In Australia, all cars retail around this price and the local distributor could not answer if they had been ordered as yet.
Bring on Monday for my new late Xmas present

Thanks, NICK

Judging by the Retail price set by Japan 58,000.00yen... The actual street price will be around $430.00 U.S.

Hey Mike I just got my BD5 today. Starting build now. The single servo mount looks unique...We'll see how it goes

Arms look close to a cyclone!

Thanks Fpart !
it is a little bit out of subject but if you still have the BD, could you please check and let me know if the BD5 steering center mount would fit the original BD ?
I am interested to know that, thanks.

Default steering

The bottom mounts seem to line up but the top of it goes to one so if you mean just the bottom it seems it will work.
