Yeah buddy. I really liked this plane when I saw it at the AMA show. At the expected release price, I think it'll do well. I'll pick one up for that price.

The rep. told me that it's a solid flying plane and quick, but not speed demon. He said on 8S, we'll likely see in the 130's (mph). There is tons of battery space, so we'll see how it does on 10S. He expained that it doesn't have 100% full ducting, but it's still good.

Definitely a sweet jet! Evelyn and I were surprised at how light it is!

I'm not a sport jet fan but this one is on my radar!

I agree man. If they can really come in at that $499 price point with those electric retracts, I'm in.

What is it constructed of? Ducting is no problem to make.

Looks really good, thanks for posting, xplaneguy.

Robert, do you know if the wing is fully sheeted over foam, then covered? Or is the wing partially built up?

This is a pattern flyers dream, constant speed up and down lines.
It looks to be very light and will fly very nice with E or K power.

If the quality of these Sebart EDF are as good as their prop planes they should do great. I fly a couple of Sebart prop planes and they are very lightly built. Now that the dollar is making a come back on the Euro the planes should be reasonable to buy....my prop planes cost quite abit compared to other models.

I have no reason to doubt that they will be anything but top quality! Every other SEBA model I have owned is beautifully designed and built!
