    Default Bumper Boy Servo's and Speakers Needed or Remaining Inventory

    Has anyone attempted to actually contact the company to see if they have any remaining inventory?

    I' like to purchase 1/2 doz servo's and at least 4 speakers. Does anyone have any ideas on the aftermarket supplies or a company that I might be able to reach out to?

    Thanks

    Have you? The interweb makes it so easy to spend time trying to find out if someone else made a phone call when it would take less time to just call em.

    I did e mail them and got a responce tht "most manufactures are off shore". It also went on to state that there was a level of certainty that the product line would be picked up. So for now I can only hope I can keep my three units going with the
    Local hobby shop and electrical tape. Then if the product line 8/'picked up the new owner does not makemmajormwhole sale changes making older unit part obsolete. I've started looking at options since I train alone a lot.

    The servo's you can buy at any rc store or on amazon.com. Your servo has a number on them so the retailer can help you out.
    I hope it works out.

    A Friend had sent me a servo and I think I'll need to be somewhat of a mechanical genious. I figured this stuff came in from overseas. I tried calling them twice plus sending an e-mail and no response. The have an automated phone message that is almost garbled to the point that you can not understand what they are saying.

    As stated above Futaba makes the identical servo the s3003, they also carry one with a ball bering it's their s3004, they are a stock item at most hobby shops. If you would like to see one Google it.
    There is a thread running now on the RTF about alternative batteries and the necessary wireing ......... I am sure that BB did not make its own speakers.......

    I was told that the battery thread may have been for the old electronics not the Hawks.

    Anyone get batteries for the Hawks?
