Paul is a stand up guy, NO ONE will be ripped off, it is just going to take some time to unravel the current scenario.
I gotta tell you, a true stand up guy would respond no matter the situation unlike what he is doing. If there are issues okay but not responding is a close 2nd to ripping someone off!

I just saw this on the Flying Fox RC website ..


"8th April 11 - Due to ongoing shipping difficulties, Flying Fox RC has temporarily closed its online store. All products will be will be made available through shops in North America and Europe. All outstanding orders are being refunded. Flying Fox RC is very sorry for the inconvenience suffered by it customers in recent times."


I suppose everyone that ordered and has not received their items should be looking for a refund.

Now .. where can I order them in the US?

How many of you guys are looking for the JRXS-R parts?

This isn't something we should have to rely on one company in Australia for.

I ordered my stuff from SkyRocket Batteries for my type R. The layshaft was in so that came quick. The spool on the other hand,,, waited over a year for it & never got it. All I kept hearing was that Paul, at Flying Fox kept working on wear issues with the outdrives. Got tired of waiting & cancelled that order & changed it to something else. Tory at SkyRocket was on top of it & took care of me quick. It's a shame & good way to get a bad reputation as a business the way Flying Fox is carying on.

That is the US Distributor but he has not had parts in months. I am still waiting on a Layshaft since November. Yeah you read that right, since November and they have not been able to fill my order as of yet....
I am not mad at the owner because he has been staying in contact with me about my order but DAMN how much patience can one person have??

I almost ordered drive cups in February, Boy I'm glad I didn't, I have the patience of a 5 year old, shit would've hit the fan for sure!

This is no way to conduct business, regardless the circumstances. There is simply no excuses for stringing paying customers along, unless of course you're dead... and apparently he is not.

Atomic makes outdrives for the xray as well, they have 2 versions of it (aluminum and steel) and both 50mm and 52mm drivershafts could be used with it. There are available in some of the hong kong rc shops (rcmushroom and rcmart I know for sure).
