We have been discussing the need to update Aspire for some time. There was already the descision to increase the tail moment on the fuse. If Lubos chooses to do this, then it would be reasonable to alter the fuse with a smaller x-section to be easier to grasp for launch and a drooped nose for easier stuck F3J landings. So you might see an updated Aspire with a Kolb inspired fuse. However We have asked Lubos to please not change the wing, as those that fly Aspires can testify it is a really sweet wing to fly.... So ,yes there are discussions going on. I am sure that Lubos will consider his options carefully and try to come up with a model that will stand the test of time, just like the Aspire has. I will announce when the new model has finished the design, flight test phase and when you can order one. I am pretty excited about Lubos's ideas and the potential for an updated Aspire....if he can improve what he has already, it is going to be a very good model. LJ
