Since you're in India, maybe shipping from Topmodele France is affordable??

this is where I bought my 5 meter version called the fashionista.

Will check with Topmodel France. I did check from the German firm selling the Epsilon and they said they would not ship to India. Well, I will take my business someplace else. Am also in touch with Topmodel CZ and then nearer to home, Singahobby has the Masala

Just a little bump to the thread about this fine model. I actually wish it was still imported to the USA so others could enjoy it too! I even dream about the 5m showing up at a reasonable cost....one can dream.

Yesterday my Masala made it out for the first time in six months or so. My buddy did a good job of documenting my near miss of the moon and a nearby thunderstorm...

Enjoy!

^Nice photos.

I'm pretty disapointed I didn't pull the trigger on this while available from nitroplanes.

For anyone else who missed the boat, I'm contemplating this new release from HobbyKing:

The Ather 3700

With Singapore Post it puts it under $300 delivered.

I saw the Ather yesterday online and it got my attention too. I suspect ultimately it may be in a different class, and not capable of penetrating up wind. Yesterday the Masala had a couple of 500'+ climbs, and readily penetrated the 10-20mph winds to be ready to climb again. The Ather might not do that.

On the other hand, I suspect it will core a thermal and climb much faster!

Cheers!
