He would not or could tell me any more information and I was unable to locate anything related to this on the web. Has anyone heard about an improved version being released in the near future?
I posted this question in early November, 2011 in the Champ forum. Could this be the plane the sales person was referring to or is there still something new on the horizon (pardon the pun). Im glad I waited.
The Champ is for beginner or as they say it "Teach Yourself to Fly". The Cub is currently listed as intermediate. So I don't think it will kill the Champ soon. It's a fast flyer, it's more expensive, and sadly it's a sweet plane I have to own. (Dang)
