Pics of the Komet

I saw the Me163 fly at the Sydney event in November and here are some pics.

Let me say that the Me163 was truly awesome! It just ate up the sky with massive speed and these huge loops. For me it was defintely the most impressive plane that Stuart flew that day (in my opinion clearly).

The fact that it even has a working Dolly using the magnetic release is just icing on the cake. Perfect for my long grass field.

Not long before it is released right Stuart... This is a BIG month for the Durafly range.

You know he'll be here. He's probably just tying his shoelaces. He'll catch up

Stuart, since I know you are lurking, can you let me know if it will run a 4S 2200 battery and if so, would it need a bigger esc? Perhaps you could lets us know in your little bit to camera?
