they are for sale now!
I really like the sw3, brad makes some awesome chassis, and he really takes his time with them. Good job Brad!
Oh yes, looks like you have done your research, it looks like a very nice start!!

I had ordered a black SW2 some time ago and Bender said he was having trouble getting plates anodized so he gave up this chassis to me for being so patient.I dont believe Ill ever think of who to get another chassis from because of Bender's customer satisfaction, just hope a scaler is in his future.

Ordered a pede and probably going to go with a Integy 65T for now.Mr Pink has got me wanting to go brushless but going to stay a little cheaper on this first one.Just cant decide on a ESC.
