E-Flite's New Hurricane Z-Foam Warbird
well guys Surprise Surprise Surprise, the new E-Flite war bird is released and guess what it's a Hurricane http://www.modelflight.com.au/produc...NF-8633-6.html
and it looks like E-Flite is going to look after the larger sized Z-Foam planes as this one is made of Z-Foam, which would mean Parkzone can keep there planes in the lower price bracket and E-Flite will start to offer some larger planes for us in the Z-Foam

Love the split flaps on this one just one day after Dave says they don't have a cost effective way of doing them. Maybe the guys from Parkzone should talk to the E-Flite guys every once in a while.

It's a nice spec and I WANT ONE
Just checked the E-Flite web site and no mention of it yet - wonder who will have it in the US - not BH I hope!
PS Any idea who does the Lancaster in foam? I want the complete Battle of Britain flight

Chuck strikes again !!!
Another bird flying at tree top right under the radar.
Looks nice, a return serve to the FMS / Airfield line.
Guess Windrider might loose some sails to this one too.
Too bad for me its not a zero or dauntless, but looks great, nice work HH
