I'm guilty of that myself. Having three or four or five projects going all at once and taking forever to finish. Guess I have a little ADD.

Well.... he is the one with a company, lots of "projects" but no sales of his products. He a manufacturer, he need to set priorities, allocate resources, build, test and sale his products. If he don't do that he will be out of business even before he starts the company.

I build mine, fly them but don't tease with lots of this is what I'm building.

I believe Kin designed/built a few EDF Jet Fighters, among those is a 2 x 70mm F-15. I was then wanting and waiting for a 1 x 90mm F-15.

I have purchased "wing servo" mounts, manufactured by Kin (Smartmodel) for the RC glider community.

I hope that Kin will not be deterre/'distracted. Some comments may make sense but we also could fail to see the good.

Don't worry, Kin will not be distracted or deterred, he is a dreamer with lots of ideas. That is step number one " the idea"

However, history has proven, 85% fail.

Like most of you guys out there, I am hopefull, but I keep one eye looking and hoping, while the other eye and rest of my body moves forward.

And to those of you say "Well, you can build your own" Lots of us did for many years, but first you had to build the tools, wing jigs, fuse jigs, etc. Modern technology has changed all of that and life has been made easier.

What's wrong with that so long as we are willing to pay the price?

Scalefan,

What can I say! You are a man of wisdom with a very broad peripheral vision. I certainly hope that we can see some of what you can.

Thanks for extending your thoughts,

I thought the 90 sized F-15 would have been great. Could never find any size listed though. Last pic in post #4 may have had info, but it won't open.
Just has to be of decent size. If you noticed, Tam just flew a 18.5lb SM F-86 with his TJ90!

Waiting to see the new Hawk Mk 100 to be available, we can have a look at the M 346 or Yak 130 from Ready2fly, even if it is in EPO.

Hello Kin,

Thanks for coming back on-line!

If JA-37 Viggen is delayed for early 2013 (for good reason), I will consider the P-51D Mustang (all-composite with e-retracts) or the Hawk (Canada) with e-retracts and composite wing.

Best wishes,

Del

- A330
- Mig 31
- hawk (70mm fan)
- F35
- F14
- F20
- Hawk 100
- JA37 started
- Plans for starting a T50 in 2013

i know that making a plane will take a lot of time. But when they concentrate first on one plane, and bring it on the market. Making a lot of plugs, but nothing to buy, is not the way to do it. Also the wait for the composite wing for the hawk 100 is strange to me, when looking in post 505, there is a composite wing for the hawk100
Some models is done when i still in my old factory , but i leave there more than one year .So some old models is finished the mold and some still in mater plug status , but i am not sure the oold factory when they finish it . Sorry about some project not selling in market . But i can tell you the following project will appear very soon Hawk -100 finish this month and for selling .Composite wing for Hawk -100 finish in end Nov . Viper jet 90 mm full composite finish end Nov or middle Dec . I will finish some old project follow the Viper jet and they are the work in 2013 ..F-15 90mm , F-14 . Hope guy understand i have leave from old factory and move the products line to a new space . so i need a lot settle down thing and employ some new worker , it is a hard work in last 2012 , but now are smooth and work fast . But some model in that list is old factory models . i can not touch it in business .

Not that it helps with the other models everyone is asking about, but at least it means there is some movement.

Thanks

Hello Dave,

Your post is more than a month ago. I presume "the hawk" is still up in the air.

I hope Kin is okay.
