Saw it at AMA Expo in Ontario in January ... a beautiful model with Aeroworks' signature high quality ... it was hung from the ceiling and cast a pretty decent shadow on the floor!

Don't know how I missed seeing it, looks like a great towplane.

Dennis doesn't look up that often, he thinks it "saves" his neck mussels for more important things, like thermals.

I was going to say, isn't it normal for a soaring pilot to look up? But maybe he's a slope-head and spends all his time looking down on the top of his planes at the cliff?

I once told a girl I enjoyed watching the tops of women's heads ... when she got it, so did I!

Sorry guys, it just means that there was just so much bling to look at that I missed it, maybe I should have done two days there?

Dennis, I don't know ... I was there for two days, but it didn't take me that long to see everything I wanted to see, product-wise. It was more fun running into friends I haven't seen for years and years!

Maybe you just need to adjust your scan from 2D to 3D

Just funnin' with ya!

P.S. LOOKING FORWARD TO JR AEROTOW!!!!!!!

No not a towplane video, although there is a shot of one of the new Carbon Cubs, like Aeroworks is about to bring out as an ARF. No it's just a cool video with a neat twist at the end that modelers will enjoy!

Boy...I have always liked Cubs, but this new Carbon Cub is really cool! That would have to make an awesome towplane for sure. I see that it will be in the $2,000 price range too. Not to mention a great color scheme as well!
