Dear Joeygoose

Very soon, it could be launch to the market before end of May.
We are doing a lot of pre-production flight test in Hong Kong and other countries.
This kit may included ESC and battery.
Please see the "click to install" horn and 4 inch propeller as attached image.

Nice looking party of mini's!!!! What size motor is planned for the 34 inch wing? My smallest wing is a Scram Blur which is 20 inch wing span. Johnson 250 motor on a 4x4 prop with a lipoly pack. It really moves on the setup!!

Motor options:
a. Speed 370 with 4 inch propeller
Fast but motor was very hot.
b. GWS IPS gearbox with 8 inch propeller
Very long flight time but slow
c. GWS EDP-50 type motor with 3.5 inch propeller
Light and fast but motor still very hot
d. Mini Brushless motor
The best I think but cost $$$ on motor and ESC

EPP or EPS

Your new mini looks very good. You say that it is EPP, but the photos look like EPS. Can you clarify.
Thanks

I've got two Ele Bee and one Bee. Got to have a Mini Bee!! When are you going to release them for sale in the US. I'm flying a SuperFlea now, and I love the small wings.

WingMan33,

I like the sound of "You don't have to go brushless to go very,very FAST." What battery packs do you use to go with that motor, prop and ESC combination.

Thanks, Matt
