Kk - "There's nothing wrong with a Harvard. " No problem. Iconic ww2 and still strong with us. Is now covered by several makers, all seemingly in good form....except FMS in the large format . , far as I can see.

I'm suggesting FMS go around the Texans and do a similar but unknown and true classic also, the Vultee 'Valiant', BT-13 in the large format like the others. ... It might be just as striking an approach as what happened when Parkzone did the first T-28 and now it's a stand-out by itself.... .

True... well lets hope they take note of some of these ideas. That's a good one for sure. Somehow you're always left feeling they have their own ideas and that's it thou don't you ?
It's good fun talking about it but you get the feeling it makes little difference to the manufacturers. After all they can't please everyone. Maybe that's the trouble ? Maybe they try too hard to do just that ? That why we have so many Mustangs ?
If I was a manufacturer of these planes I would give serious consideration to the concept that maybe the competition in regard to Mustangs was now too hot and it was time for a change. Maybe a radical change ? Anyhow FMS have indeed started doing just that with those smaller ones. Good for them.

Kk - Yeah, it seems they really only go with the ideas that have gathered strength within their own fold. So much to do with image and what might be "all the rage".

I would buy an F7F in a heartbeat if it was in 1700mm. I would prefer a P38 as this is my personal favourite but I would be happy with any big twin for something different !

I take it you already own the Dynam 262 and 110? Both twin and both "different".

Personally I'd welcome a trainer about like a repeat of winter but that's just me, I'm sure some would love it.

The problem with EDF is the very short flight times. The 110 is fine, but a tad too small for my liking. Only other company that does an F7F is ESM and it's large and costs a bomb! Looks amazing though.

A larger PT17 fits the bill but is a biplane so also doesn't.

I have history with the Harvard so I'm bias.

With that being said I'll agree that it is no kind of trainer when it comes to beginners.
My Grandfather trained in the AT6 during WWII. He was RAF and flown to Falcon Fields in Arizona to complete his flight training.
