New GWS/Wattage Plane & Hitec

My mostly glow club held a meeting at The Prop Shop last night. I noticed several new items and bought one. The one bought was a Wattage speed 280 park flyer. I know, you're going to ask the name, but I forgot. But the retail price was $35.

The model is reminicent of the German plane in the Great Race - although is comes with British markings. The fuse is a triangular section made from depron and the wings are very similar to the LiteStik. Comes with a speed 280 motor and gear box; however, I haven't seen a 280 like this one - it's the same diameter as a 280, but it is flatted on the sides. I put the fuse together last night in about an hour of puttzing around. I let you know how it comes out.

Second new item was a Hitec 3 channel FM with a new receiver. The Rx is a 5 channel single conversion unit about the same size as the 2/3 channel AM Rx, but it's FM. Price for this combo with 2 HS-81's and NiCds in the Tx was $99.95
