We thought we would just do one and stop there!

PNP at 80 bucks I would go ahead and get in line.. But at the price they are asking seems to much money for to little plane..

so... I don't like the fact that it uses my scheme... but why the complaints about the price or the PNP?...

it's laser cut depron with a mylar sheet to keep the weight down, it's quite a remarkable product. And the PNP... it's seriously going to need expo, so why are people complaining that it doesn't come with a cheapo RTF transmitter that will make the experience miserable?...


...flying even the Sukhoi's on an RTF transmitter is amazingly un-fun experience let alone the 4-site or this.

are you serious? One is 2 color scheme with a sweep on the tail and an aray of stars down the center with the motif on the wings as well. The other is a 4 color scheme with different lines and no star array. The only thing they share in common is the single, central, stretched, star on the fuse. Are you claiming intelectual rights to a star? It's a nice star and I'm sure others will emulate it or incorporate it into their designs or schemes, but I think there are enough differences in the design to say it isn't a rip off of someone elses design.

I will agree with you on the TX. The cost of including a decent TX for a RTF version would put the price through the roof. For a BNF though the price is steep which is what the others are complaining about. Not the fact that it doesn't come with a controler, but that they are not getting compensated for it's lack of controler in a price break. Thats a lot of money to pay for a brushed profile foamy. The skinned foam design has been around for years on indoor flyers. Nothing new there. Surprised we don't see more of it.

It's a BNF with charger and batteries.. I have enough chargers thank you don't need any more.. PNP if just the plane, manual and the nice box..

RTF would be with the cheap useless TX..

You have a point if this was just a random scheme against another random scheme... but Seth took it off the Osiris, it was confirmed: He had a conversation with AJ, and after the event I had a conversation with him at the ETOC. There's no doubt, and he still put it into a retail product. Whatever. I've said my bit, people will assume and conclude what they will.

I think we have concluded that with the exception of a star on the side of of plane it looks nothing like "your" scheme. (I am also pretty sure there have been stars on planes for good while now )

anyways, i think I might actually buy one of these, i didn't like the looks ofr the 4site too much but still wanted a nice 3d micro - so this thing is going to fill that void perfectly.
