The long awaited CMP (aka CMPro or China Models) Aero L-39 / L-59 Albatros 90mm EDF

http://www.chinapro09.com/OEM%20airplan/L-39.html is now out.

Given that the original had a wingspan of 9.46m and a length of 12.13m (L-59: 12.20m), whereas the model has a wingspan of 120cm and a length of 132cm, the scale is approximately 9.46m/1.20m = 7.9 :1 .

I got mine from RC Aerodyne and it arrived, double boxed with no damage.

Edit: CORRECT CMP L-39 CG AFTER THREE MONTHS OF FLYING:
ca. 75-78 mm from wing leading edge at root (see picture below)
