Whats its history?

Pedigree?
DNA?
Predecessors?
Capabilities?
Anyone fly one?

OK it looks great
Yep
Thats the way we buy our cars, and get married
Mild apologies -i just get impatient, looking for something substantial to learn of something that looks nice and new. Nothing of value shows up. There must be a story here somewhere?

as I read it, the 429euro is within EU. It include EU tax. For orders outside EU I read it it is 350 euro. But I may be wrong.

Is always a bit confusing the way they sell, cause is not clear what you get for the 429 (VAT/TAX) included. They list below options like: 12€ extra for a 2.4ghz compatible fuselage and some 60€ for the carbon wing option. But there's no other option.. Is the basics kit wing not carbon?

So i will say the price is around 500€ (inside Europe) but for exports should be around 420 + shipping.. not bad indeed.

Next question is how long is the waiting time?

(i'm not buying one, but the changes make it look much better than the predecessor at least at launch it will be)

beware also that they don't include the peg on the basic kit and you might need for DLG..

their kit doesn't include the peg on the steigeissen or the prev chili.

Netto price is below 400. That's why I thought it was 400ish with tax inside er and 350ish outside eu.

Christian, if they offer the carbon option to the wing, how is it then without the:

Code:
1565	Chili F3K Carbon-biax wing extra charge		 60,00	60,00
Any guess?

I have sent and email asking about production/waiting time.

The original Chili was also sold without the peg. A peg was extra.
I remember the original Chili ended up reasonably priced but the high end version wasn't "that cheap"...
Still iy was a fine model and I expect this one to be eaven finer.
Happy to see they are building the tails differently, the old ones would flatter on hard throws.

That's the price without VAT including Shipping and that Carbon option that I still don't understand well.. Is it like a glass finished layer? Or they have a non-carbon option? (i doubt so).

Just got a word from them regarding waiting time:

Quote:
At the moment 1-4 weeks delivery time.
And got also a word regarding the 2 versions:

Quote:
By the way, standard version is a glass setup wing. For non contest flying fine and valueable but if you want good stability AND low weight biax carbon is the one you need. We decided not to offer carbon D-box + disser or aramid version.
