Hi guy's, thought I'd just jump in here with just a quick update. The product team have indeed been going full force with new releases and (as has been mentioned) we do like to have a 'product video' for every one of them where possible. But it does take time, and there's only myself and one other in the video dept.

The good news is that we've almost finished post production on the Zephyr video, and I'll be uploading it to our channel very soon, so please keep an eye out.

You'll love this bird I'm sure, really is a rock solid flyer, sounds great too.

S.

Thanks for the update! I don't want to criticize, but can you guys please be more subjective when telling us about an upcoming product. Instead of soon, how about specific timeframes...a week, two days, etc. looking forward to getting that zephyr

We'd like to be and we are looking at how we can. Unfortunately when HK have mentioned times dates etc in the past, they've come unstuck by elements out of there control, which has served only to frustrate all concerned. Even the Zephyr has suffered from this, but it is very close. I'm sorry that's all I can tell you.

Love this plane already. Totally unique design. Looks very crash damage resistant. Look forward to upgrading the fan unit with a 12 bladed fan.

I am looking forward to seeing it fly, and the price point on it. Also it is listed as coming soon on the Durafly facebook page.
Might get one other before this one, might not just have to wait and see.

come on guys its been a week since HK posted here and still no video.
getting a bit frustrating when new planes that appear pretty much from no were have videos and are on sale.
v70 was filmed weeks ago.

There has been a small delay, and pending no more, you'll see something soon. The tease must be getting very dull by now I'm sure, and the frustration is understandable. But please hang on just a little while longer. It will be worth it.

Stuart, I fully understandingyour point. I have worked in both production and warehousing and by extension distribution and transportation. Keep up the good work and take the grumbles as enthusiasm for the product.

Having lived the help that is middle level "management", I raise my glass to you guys.
