Momentum for a new platform looks to be dependent on Wayne getting shipments from the EU. Not trying to be biased towards Wayne, but I really do think we need a local distributor to help support these races with a low cost plane. In my opinion, we are blessed to have Wayne in the community and can't wait to try a new model.

Don't know how easy it will be to target a Santa Ana event but I'm game for trying if thats the consensus. That said I'm in Hawaii from 11/10 - 11/22 so I wouldn't be able to make anything on the 2nd and 3rd weekend in November.

In case you guys didn't see the footage.. Here is the bigger brother of the planes I'm suggesting. This is a 1.9 meter light weight, just imagine a more robust 1.5 meter.

Mefisto 1.9 Meter - Slope (7 min 4 sec)

Yes, what's the ETA of the the Elf (that's the one I vote for )?

And does anyone want to do a Speedo race one of the first two weekends of November?

I'm good for a Speedo race!

The manufacturer of the kits has suffered a heart attack, he is back in the shop now and back to work, but he is way behind as a result. I currently do not have an ETA. Will try and get an ETA.

They shipped out last week, and we should have the first batch in a few days. I'm not 100% sure which kits will be in the shipment, but I think it will be the Elf, and the Fen, and maybe the Mefisto and Faun. The rest of the planes will be in another shipment.

The Elf is one of the planes we were considering for the races.

Wayne, sign me up for one of the Elves. I've been thinking that we could race either the Faun or Elf against each other. I'm sure that neither would have a huge advantage over the other, maybe one would work better under certain conditions and vice versa.
