New Product
Hobby King 1400mm GeeBee G3 EPO PNF

I just had to be the first kid on the block to have one. Under a Buck twenty, can't really go wrong. Should be here before next weekend
Will post video ASAP.

Easy and Fast to Assemble
Superb and Eye Catching Looks
Tough EPO Foam
Heavy Duty Under-Carriage and Large Wheels can Tackle Almost any Strip
Removable 1pc Wing for Easy Transport
Great Size with Loads of Presence
Impressive Aerobatic Performance Combined with Docile Low Speed Handling

Specs:
Wingspan: 1400mm
Length: 1328mm

P.S. Just wondering why no Hype and Hooplah like the Zephyr(which I have and is awesome) I also have the 1400mm Sbach342 EPO. Looking at the foam and finish on this, it might be from the same factory. If so, COOOL

He's probably just excited about his new model. Who hasn't? It's not like he joined a day ago just to make the post.

The reason that we have New product model threads is to discuss, then dissect each particular model giving everyone out there a little insight on assembly tips, what to do, and not to do, and in general "look out for this" kind of stuff. If you feel that this is an advertisment, you are sorely mistaken. The reason I started this thread off with the product video and description is that is the only information on the web at the time of this posting.The only bad part is when Hobby King comes out with cool new stuff, then they don't stock it in their other warehouses until months later.
Almost $40.00 shipping. Still under $160.00 PNF at my doorstep. Pretty hard to beat. Try getting one this size,quality and PRICE at your LHS. I should know, I work at one

In the past, I've probably brought a half dozen PNF airplanes in my shop. Usually to replace or repair an original part with ones we carry.. I.E. motors, servos, control horns, etc.. So.. it's all good

All you did was order the plane? You post the entire HK advertisement including their video. You rave about the quality and state what a great bargain it is yet you haven't even received it. I understand this thread is for discussing new products but don't you think your personal review of this plane is a bit premature. If you would have at least waited until you received it I wouldn't have commented. The picture looks great and I'm sure you're excited about getting a new plane in the hanger I would be too. The fact is HK now hires promoters and that makes me suspicious of threads like yours. I hope the plane lives up to your expectations.

I DO NOT WORK FOR HOBBY KING. I am doing this for the benefit of others who decide to get this thing.. enough said
All I did was cut and paste from the H.K. website. Those aren't my words. I thought I made it clear that the only information at this time, is on the H.K. website. If you look at any new product thread, most of them start out with what the manufacter's specs and maybe a video because when it's new, that's all the information that's available. I'll delete all the fluff valanti

P.S. It seems you've got some issues with Hobby King or something?

Take no notice of him. I believe you.

I come here to find out about new models and I don't give a stuff who tells me about them, or who they work for.

Personally I would never make allegations about another members I could substantiate.

+1 for me! I have found the information shared on this website to be invaluable, every now and then you have to skip a few well-intentioned but less valuable (personal perception!) contributions.

Wow! I'm speechless. This user does nothing but anti-HK post, so ignore him. Another one for the ignore list.

BTW - beautiful plane. Would love to see how it goes together and flies.

Are you in the RC business yourself? Is HK one of your competitors?

After checking out your link there is no doubt the poster of the negatives is a HK hater. I would ignore him. Thanks for the video and the link.
