New Product
New Elite Series 39in 15mm EPP Foam Sbach-342 from Value Hobby with Airfoiled Wings

http://www.valuehobby.com/39in-sbach-epp-profile.html

The 8mm EPP foamies from Value Hobby have been a big success, and now we are following up with a bigger, stronger, and most importantly, airfoiled Elite Series foamie Sbach. As always, the plane is value priced, and with inexpensive and popular brushless power, you will have a lot of foamie fun without breaking your budget.

This plane is made of EPP foam. The fuselage is 15mm(.59in) thickness solid-core EPP. The wing is airfoiled solid-core EPP, and has a maximum thickness of 30mm(1.18in). There are also 2 carbon fiber rod running the full length of the wing and 2 carbon fiber rod running the full length of the fuselage. The plywood landing gear mount on the fuselage can handle rough landings without damaging the foam body. The elevator is reinforced with a piece of balsa wood strip.

The airfoiled wings allow better controls in stronger winds, and all the reinforcement makes sure the plane won't deform when maneuvering your 3D moves. The plane works well with the popular 400-size or 450-size brushless motors. The motor mount can handle motors with 28mm diameter.

Specifications:
Wingspan: 39.4 in(1000mm)
Length: 37.4 in(950mm)
Wing Area: 347.2 sq in(22.4 sq dm)
Flying Weight: Approx. 1lb (450-500g)

Recommended Setup
Motor: 2212-1000KV outrunner brushless motor
Speed Controller: 30A-40A brushless ESC
Servo: 9g digital metal gear servo (4pcs)
Battery: 3s 11.1v 1300mAh LiPO
Prop: 11 x 5.5 prop

I am confused... this states that this is a new product, however, this product (at the link above) has been on the website for quite some time. In fact, the dates on the 2 reviews listed there are over a year old...

Is this an update to that original product? Or had the website not been updated? They look the same...
