That looks very cool! Dan, you should think about a career with JC penny modeling briefs. Are you guys fixin' to fly that bird out of Palomar Airport?

I offered to strip down to my skivvies for the model shots but Mike declined!

I will venture to say that the Precision shows the best mold work, fit and finish I have seen.

Thanks for the sneak preview Mike!

I'll go ahead and answer that for you Ian. Not sure yet. Nose seems to be all kevlar, so 2.4 signals should get through. Will let you know though.

Today I noticed a sticker on top of the nose cone that claims the model to be 2.4 friendly.

I watched P Rondel practice today with his precision and it looked really fast. I have a sneaky suspicion that any thing he puts on a slope looks fast though. I checked out the model up close and it looks very tight.

He there,

got my Precision this week and it´s really a piece of art. Probably it will be flying tomorrow. Friday next week I´ll take it to ou England slope vacation and after that directly to the F3F-competition at Rügen where the german team for the WC 2012 will be determined.
Really looking forward to flying it. Mine is an F3F with Rohacell in the wings, Spread-Tow and double carbon, carbon v-tail.

Cheers,
Arne
