China is coming with nice Electric planes

I just saw today one of their products, few of my friends bought today their
fun world EP. The kit quality looked AMAZING and so light. Anyone has experience with them ?

I have to say the price was VERY LOW for Israel. Like $125 US. So I assume it would be even much cheaper in other countries.

Good to see new products

They've been around for awhile now. I've been flying one of their planes (Happy Fly)for a couple of years now. I converted it to elec with an AXI and it has held up very well. One of their USA distribution centers is just about a mile from one of the club fields that I fly at in Livermore CA.
Lots of the members from that club fly the World Model planes and are very pleased with the quality and the price.

I was thinking they had a large selection and just wondered how come I did not see some earlier

So I am late. At least, they are VERY new to the Israeli market

Are they sold by big distributors in the US ?

I looked at the Rambler electric a few weeks ago in Steve Webb models ... around £50 and it was nice .. very light and very strong and VERY well made compared to some of the junk I have seen.

Hey now,
I've got to hand it to World Models. So far every one of their arfs has been very nice. I have a "Happyfly", my second model after coming back to the hobby. I flew it with an O.S. .25fp, then with an Astro 15g on ten cells and later with a Phasor 30-3, as cabin jobs go it has been a fine preformer.
I also recently bought a "Zen 30". I'm using the Phasor 30-3 on 3s2p lipos (4200) and it's, well it's a wow experience. Thing flys like my little GWS Formosa only better in the breeze, if you wanted a midsize pattern model this one is great. I often see their Mustangs with Hacker motors in them, those fly very well too. Very light and strong for arfs designed for slimers, they make great E-conversions.
Oh, the little "Rambler" flies nice too...

I've seen several of their kits at our club field, and I'm working on the 1/4 scale clipped wing Cub for electric. I'm very impressed with the quality. My Cub is just about perfectly constructed and certainly better than I could do myself.
