I truly hope that they haven't given up on the 1700mm size planes.
I am just getting fully aquainted with my corsair lately, and getting those two wheel landings dialled in perfectly! It's no speedster but flys very scale!

Hey FMS ! You don't have to DISCONTINUE the CRAPPY OLD 1400mm Spitfire , Thunderbolt and P40 , just UPGRADE them all at once to the level of the V8 P51 Mustang and THEN we'll GLADDLY buy them all again at your new UPGRADED PRICES but not before !!!!! Just CORRECT wing dihedral , Better landing gear mounts , Faster motors and More scale canopies !!! IS THAT REALLY SO HARD TO UNDERSTAND ????????? !!!!!!!!!!! But , if you really need to do something NEW , then a 1400mm P39 Airacobra done as well as a V8 P51 WILL succeed in getting us to open our wallets to you again ! THATS 1400mm !! NOT 980mm !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dont worry about upgrading them! Most are now discontinued anyway (There's a post a few pages back stating retired models)....

And don't worry about re-releasing. Just give us new models.

Do you mean the K-7? I was surprised to see it's already been done!

With oleo struts.

And if you're gonna upgrade or release another tail dragger, how about a retractable tail wheel?

That is right on..! You become aware that the large size stays in view longer and is more relaxing, you actually get to enjoy watching it fly.

1.7m size makes for larger wheels, best handling on turf. So many advantages for the flier - end user.

Unfortunately Tomas won't ship outside of the US & TBM's shipping rates are way to high.
