I doubt it includes a charger. I don't see one listed on the website anyway. Your Traxxas charger should be fine assuming it's charging at 1amp. Otherwise this looks really good. You power it with any standard 2amp USB cellphone charger or even a battery bank, it charges at the right rate for micro lipos, it does it does 1s all the way up to 6s and it even has a built in lipo cell checker that works when its not plugged in. A lipo checker alone usually costs what the charger does. I may pick one up with my HobbyKing order even though I already have a few chargers. http://www.hobbyking.com/mobile/view...dproduct=84369

Yup, looking at the axles immediately thought how easy leafs and even scale U-bolts could go on these.

Very cool! What type of printer are you using? Any examples of how the finish looks on the printed body?

Tower Hobbies has it listed as early April for being in stock and looks like you can pre order. I have not checked the other major distributors. I just got back into all of this and am finishing up a Gelande 2 Cruiser and build one of the Orlandoo. I just got on the waiting list for one of these. I am going to be divorced......

So that's twice now these things have been in stock, and by the time I get one in my cart and go to check out, they're gone. All I want is one, just one. I guess it doesn't pay to be busy. Hopefully next time I can get on it faster. I actually hate playing these games. I wish they would just stock enough, or put a cap on how many people can order at a time. That way everyone can get their hands on one. I'll be pissed if they show up on eBay for more.

Look at it this way, the first batch always has bugs to work out. The next batch will have revisions. I was in line for my morning coffee before work, checked my email and ordered my truck before I got my coffee. Hope I didn't just the gun.

Sorry about the rant. I'm just impatient. As a micro builder I've been wanting something just like this for awhile. My heads been spinning with ideas, and I just want to get one in my hands. You're probably right about waiting until they work out a few bugs. Like I said, I'm just impatient.
