So far so good, there aren't any alignment tabs on the sides like the original blocks so there is a little play. Just make sure everything is lined up correctly before tightening the screws down. I ordered from infinity-hobby in Taiwan, shipping was not cheap but boy was I shocked when it was delivered on Sunday, I figured with MLK day I wouldn't see the parts till Tuesday. That was cool.

Without the alignment tabs, they are no-go for me.

I ordered that CanoMod fuse, on the 18th, when they had greater than 5 pieces in stock.
The order status has been "in process" ever since!
I was kinda suspect at the time as to how they got blank 500 fuselages to paint already.
Especially since no one seems to be able to get painted stock 500 fuselages.

I hate when people advertise false inventory on hand!
Yes, I'm calling them out as liars!
If they couldn't ship it out within 1-2 business days, then they obviously didn't have the parts in stock!

That is definitely not the common view here on HF.

Try to search posts regarding HeliDirect, and you will see that people are very pleased with HeliDirect - myself included.

I've not had problems with HeliDirect. The canopy order is from CanoMod.

I've had good experiences with HeliDirect. Good prices and fast delivery. Always received order confirmation and shipping info with all orders.

I bought a Dragonus II Pro kit from them and the bottom frame pieces did not match up. Although it wasn't immediate, I did get a call back from Larry who tried to make things right.

Damn, I just ordered that and its already on its way. I hope they sent me the right one. I would be very pissed if they sent me the wrong one.

You said tried, does that mean you were still not happy with the purchase?
