Tower Hobby MM

I wonder since they change the paint color if they might have made improvements over the original egg shell fragile red?
Same stock gear as the original?
Either way, very cool to see it back!

Nice!!

Looks better in blue, too. Yeah hopefully they've scrapped the decals, and revised the powertrain. Looks to have a lower price point this time around as well, inline with Tower's warbirds.

Incidentally, I was just looking over my spare MM this weekend and decided that I would paint over the red with blue. It will be a darker navy blue, however.

Great News!!

This is probably my all time favorite smaller foamie. I'm delighted to see it return. In spite of some quality issues, it is just about the nicest flyer anywhere.

If the motor/ESC and paint issues have been addressed, this will be a winner.

"We absolutely fell in love with the Millennium the moment the first prototype left the ground! Its sleek lines, steady ground handling, neutral feel and “racy” speed make it an absolute necessity for any pilot who understands that pure, real, R/C entertainment doesn’t have to come from imposing, complex airplanes."

I love this quote from the manual - and they kept it in the new manual, too. I think it captures the true appeal of this plane.

I compared the new manual with the old one and they are essentially identical. Slightly different part numbers now that it's a Tower product. I really hope they've stepped up the QC of the power system components - even though they look to be identical with the original plane.

Just make sure you use the Water Based and all will be okay.











Nice work!

4 more weeks til alleged availability! These will be had for just $99.98 if you're a Tower club member with a promo code

I'm gonna grab one to observe any differences. Will probably fly it stock with the exception of a 9x7.5 SF prop for a while before modding.
