Thanks Jurgen, I've seen the video for the Funcopter, but is there any video of the Xeno or Merlin?

Once these models are available, videos won't be a problem.

First opportunity for videos might be the Model Fair in Sinsheim (12.- 15. March 2009)

Well, I'm dissapointed that there was no response to the Radian -- a 2m (or somewhat greater, but 2m is the mainstay) RE electric glider. Basically, a modern Gentle Lady. I was waiting on that before ordering a Radian.

However, I'm pleasantly surprised to see the Merlin, which is similar to the modded Fox's that have gotten people excited. I will be buying a Merlin, when they become available.

Also, I'm somewhat pleasantly surprised to see the Cularis in a RR version, as the build looked a bit intimidating to me (obviously, from that comment, I'm not much of a builder!). Still, I'm not all that impressed with the Cularis flight reports (it seems to do better in wind [which I usually don't thermal in]), and I couldn't get true "crow" with my 6 channel Tx. I dunno. I might be tempted at some point.

The new flying wing could be tempting too. I hadn't previously really thought about one, but if the price is right...

EG Pro RR is another good entry, as is the copter and the Tx's.

I was quite dissapointed at first (no RE 2m glider), but after reading the new model PDF, I'm actually a bit excited. Bottom line, I'll be getting a Merlin. Probably the Merlin and a ParkZone Radian over the next year will do me, I'm thinking.

Wow, Multiplex is awesome. The only company needed for parkfliers IMO.

Just had a phone call with Multiplex. I was hoping to have a XENO or a FUNCOPTER for the Indoor Show in Dortmund end of April. Unfortunately these models won't be available yet.

The Zeno looks cool. Looks like a nice alternative to the Stryker. When will they be available?
