New Product
Me 163 700mm Robbe red or camo

it's in the Robbe Nano Racer series which are the Sky Angel models - could be a Sky Angel (JPower) model as well?

It doesn't say what kind of foam, but since you glue the tail fin on using "cyano" (or epoxy) this must be EPO.

3s 850mA, or 2 x 2s 850mA for 4s, the 40A ESC supposedly works for both options...

Pretty expensive at 149 euro ($187 USD) not including shipping for a 700mm (27.6") airplane significantly smaller than the HK 900mm (35.43") model which I paid $110.58+$28 shipping for in June 2012. Possibly someone else will release it at a more reasonable price. Robbe stuff is pricey to begin with and truly outrageous by the time it gets to the US.

I think I'll wait for HK's re-release of their much better looking Me-163.

Hey thank you Mopetista! Sweet, another Komet!
The more the merrier.
Not the best looking Komet - the spinner looks a bit wrong and the painted foam cockpit is a bit old-fashioned.
I like a pilot in there so there's a guy flying the plane when i make a mistake
Great to have a choice though. Cheers.

yes, the price is pretty high, but...

...as I wrote, it is most probably a Sky Angel / JPower product, so with some luck we should get it at the usual sources for a price more in line with the other Funfighters. I don't think that's a Robbe exclusive.

Robbe charged a lot for a Sky Angel Rare Bear (now, in their list, they don't give a price anymore), so there is hope this Komet won't be much more expensive than those Funfighters - and easily available world-wide.

As Robbe often got their own paint scheme from Sky Angel (again, the Rare Bear is an example) the Me 163 which would not be Robbe branded could have a different livery.

Speaking of which: As much as I like the red one - it won't be helpful that the bottom of the plane is also red on this Robbe plane: Flying fast, this will not aid orientation. A light blue bottom would be much better.

cheers

Clemens, I hope you are right, and the price will be in line with the other fun-fighters. I'll for sure have at least one then!! -----Metalguy

metalguy, maybe I am too optimistic, we'll see how it turns out.

there are Funfighters like the Pilatus PC-9, or the Grop TP-120 which are available at some places (apart from Robbe), but they are substantially more expensive than, say, the Rare Bear.

Checking the Skyangel products at atomik rc, it is not easy to understand the price differences, e.g., between two different paint schemes of the P-47 Funfighter...
But that's one place I would look for the small Komet to appear
