OK, I am throwing my hat in the ring for a 24-30 inch ws, epp biplane. Reasonably priced, made of 6-10 mm epp depending on size, with decent hardware. The last thing I wanna see is another MX, Edge, Slick, Yak, Extra, Sbach, or SU.

Thanks for your suggestion.

I will collect and report to engineer.

1.What's the most favorite in current product line in your eyes?
Having flown both the 39" Shining and the 39" Sbach, I find that the Shining suits my flying style more than the Sbach, but the Sbach is a good plane too. The Shining gets my vote.

2.Which material you like most for making airplane?
EPP with carbon fiber reinforcement.

3.What are the most important features you want for airplane?Unbreakable? Cheap?Stable?.......
I hardly ever crash, so I like cheap planes that fly well when flown aggressively.

4.Do you like airplane is made in unique design or normal design?
I consider the flight performance to be the most important thing, so whatever achieves that goal is OK with me.

5.What kind of airplane do you want us to make? Pls give several idea or advice for our reference.
I would like to see another 20mm EPP plane that builds on the experience you have learnt from manufacturing the 39" Shining and Sbach. The new plane would introduce new design features that could then be used on improved versions of the Shining and Sbach. The new plane would be a 3D plane and could be based on an Edge, MXS or Corvus Racer. The elevator would be larger than on the Shining and Sbach.

1.What's the most favorite in current product line in your eyes?
The Shining.

2.Which material you like most for making airplane?
As per above (EPP with CF reinforcement)

3.What are the most important features you want for airplane?Unbreakable? Cheap?Stable?.......
Flight performance is very important. By this I mean that it is stable in harrier, yet snaps/tumbles well. I also like my planes to have excellent knife edge with little or no coupling. Visibility is also important. Durability is nice to have as it makes learning new manoeuvres more fun and relaxing. One thing you could consider is to make sure that the fuselage CF rods connect to the ply motor mount firewall like the Telink planes. This makes for a durable front end assembly. I also like bright colours schemes, especially when flying in dull grey skies during winter.


4.Do you like airplane is made in unique design or normal design?
I prefer traditional designs (e.g. Edge, Extra, Laser, Yak etc) that have been changed to make sure they fly 3D well. In most cases I prefer the fuselage to have lots of side area so that the plane feels balanced whether its upright/inverted or in knife edge. If a plane requires too much rudder to hold knife edge it makes rolling manoeuvres such as rolling circles and rolling loops more difficult. Sometimes an original colour scheme can make one of the traditional designs stand out from the crowd.

5.What kind of airplane do you want us to make? Pls give several idea or advice for our reference.
I'd like to see a 44" wing span Shining designed for 1500 to 1800 mAh batteries. The 44" size is still very portable and can be flown in a very small area, but handles the wind slightly better than the 39" size. An all up flying weight of around 24 oz to 27oz would be great. I find myself flying the 44'' size more than the 39"size.

Thanks for answering my questions one by one.

They are good and helpful.

Will consider to add you to the sample list.

We prefer to make airplane mainly in EPP EPO DEPRON material;and our merits for skills are mold-making ;CNC cutting plates;3D Printing.

Now we are considering to make less 3d plane,maybe will incline to make scale airplane such as EPP EAGLE we have now;or the other new design or style.

Based on this point,will you continue to give some suggestion?

How about making a Bi-plane made of EPP ?

Do you have any good idea about it?

Or do you think it's potential in your local market? Maybe we need a market analysis.

Anyway,we want to hear your voice to guide .

I don't see a big demand for novelty airframes like Eagles, Flying Sharks, Flying Witches etc... to be blunt but honest, if you stop selling 3d models I don't foresee much of a demand for DW.
As per the above suggestions, larger control surfaces in the rear of your 2 best sellers, and a model with a w/s of 44" for wind.
I personally would like a 40"-45" w/s bi-plane, unpainted EPP kit (foiled or unfoiled) and the Edge, I mean "The Shining" in a 44-45" w/s (foiled preferably)
