One can only hope they get the L-39 and its price drops to $140. Then it is just the waiting game for next years free shipping codes on black friday.
Was it just me, or did I hear something Scott said back a couple of pages about carying the L-39? If so, your wait maybe shorter than expected.

The thing that doesnt make sense to me is I emailed nitroplanes a month ago about the CMPro planes and they said they had no plans to carry the CMPro planes. Wonder why they wouldn't just say they were. Now bring on the L-39 NP!

A better description of what you get would be nice. They should also remove the contradictory text that states the retracts are sold separately.

Scott was talking about the L59 not the L39.

Yeah far too much missing from their add to want to buy one at that price....

Their dimensions are almost identical. I don't see any differences worth noting.

I watched your build video with interest and picked up some great tips for my build. Thank you. Its a bit late now, but for what its worth, I hinged the front gear door with a spring salvaged from a childs toy that keeps it open. I then epoxied a piece of stiff wire to the door and adjusted it so that as the front gear entered the well it pushed on the wire and closed the door behind it as it entered the well. Works fabulously. I was with you in your moment of frustration trying to figure out the sequencer and realised that "sometimes you're so deep in the woods that you can't see the trees." Thats when I came up with my real simple idea thanks to you.
