Gee Bee 3D EPP Must Have

Guys i know this is not a scratch build, but i started this thread for 3 reasons.

1) First the kit actually allows a lot of scope for re-designing or tweaking which i know most scratch builders like doing. My Gee Bee has a tweak or two.

2) I know some scratch builders are economy conscious (not all, some), and is one of the reasons scratch building appeals. Well, this kit is ridiculously cheap. I mean $25.99, that less than £16 or 20 Euros. For that you even get landing gear, wheels, all clevises, horns, hinges, carbon reinforcement (side runners) and carbon push rods.

3) At that price it is a good buy just for a wing that could be used on a scratch build of your own. Not to mention the EPP fuselage and carbon that can be used elsewhere.

Basically to buy the EPP, cut an aerofoil, buy the carbon, push rods, landing gear and wheels will cost around $40. So this particular kit may appeal to many scratch builders and they can still play around with the design.

I think it's an insult to the Granville Brothers.

Why they call it a Gee Bee is a mystery.
Nothing about it resembles that machine.

Guys, this is a 3D plane not a scale plane, i placed it in the scratch build section originally and had 2 negative silly comments, mods placed it in Foamie Kits and received 2 pointless comments. Maybe Mods should put it in 3D Foamies and people there will appreciate it for what it is:-
A damn good, in fact seriously good flying durable and fun kit which just happens to be ridiculously cheap into the bargain.

Mods please delete this thread, seems anything from Hobbyking, regardless of how good it is, just attracts the most pathetic of posts.
This is the last time i try and share any great finds, shame i thought that what this site was all about?
Five posts and five people who should be ashamed of themselves.
Don't you negative types have anything else better to do with your time?
I,m out of here, just a message for the next loser that comes, bye silly billy.

Give me a break Tony, If you would have posted in the correct place it never would have been a concern, but you often show complete disregard for the forum rules. How many times have you been banned now? Seems like I can count at least 5 different screen names and yet you still disregard the rules that keep this forum functioning.
