hm, looks interesting. I'd like to find out more about it too. Nice scale looks, 3 bladed prop. Kinda expensive, need to find another dealer, asian or north american.

Nicesky made a Beaver float plane did they not?

ah....it appears nicesky is the same company that made the XB-70 Valkyrie a couple of years ago. Among other planes.

I emailed asking about availability of Hurricane.

heard back from nicesky. All they said is that they will be available in north america soon. So maybe nitro, or toysonics? Whoever carries the xb-70 will probably also carry this.

anyway, it means it will be easier to find soon, so that's good. I'm quite keen on getting one.

If it's from China only God himself knows where it's made.

Like I said said it LOOKS like the OLD Starmax Hurricane made years ago.

the starmax was a fair bit bigger than this. Closing in on a meter span, iirc
