Looking at a Hurricane but can't decide which one to get, Dynam, EFlite or Art- tech, all have there pros and cons,
any advice would be nice, thank you.....Some pic's of a real one I spotted at Santa Monica many moons ago.

My vote is for the WIndrider Hurricane if you can find one. Of those listed, the DYNAM looks to be the best.

I cast my vote for the Windrider also. If you're a builder it can be made up to quite an attractive model. Flies great when properly balanced. Check out the Windrider Hurricane build thread. Lots'a info about it there.
I think it's still available
Here are some shots of mine. It's not completely stock but you get the picture.

I have to say Woody, you made a great job of your Hurricane. Did you use the foam exhausts? I have one for when my build skills improve bit. The Dynam is a good plane. But the Windrider is much more detailed and has correct split flaps.The Dynam has flaps but they are not split ones and the exhaust is totally wrong. I have heard it's gear struts are a bit weak and tend to bend.

The WR Hurricane has 3 mm struts. I bent mine so many times that I put in 5 mm retracts. Grunt grunt grunt. Much better now

Thanks W X Davis, she, the Windrider Hurricane, looks the nicest of what's available, just wonder what postage will be to Australia, do you have a link
to buy from Hong Kong as I suspect postage will be less from there. (Great pic's as well)

We can get the Dynam one in Australia not much on the net on her, I guess she hasn't been out for long. HK has the one from the Australia Warehouse available on back order, is this the Art-tech one under HK's name?!

E-Flite has been discontinued for some time now! You will be hard pressed in getting the E-Flite and if you do, you will be lucky.

As of today, shipping for the Windrider Hurricane is at US$30.00.
They might have a Xmas sale with free shipping later this year, like they did in 2012.
