It's a sport jet just like all the others. The Habu, Meteor, HET Sniper, Electra, Spark, BVM Bandit, Evader and any others. In fact if you look at the intakes and the elevators they are different and not just a copy like the Meteor to the Habu.

The main difference is that this one is £600 sterling but it does come with retracts.

AND a 90mm fan power system or turbine, AND it's composite, etc etc. They're about as similar as my minivan is to a Ferrari.

Good grief. I was referring to the name and logo not the airframe itself.

You know, I didn't even notice. Sorry about that!

It's like my minivan with a Ferrari hood ornament on it.

Well in our defense you didn't say the decals look the same. Hard to tell from your post what you meant. Sorry......It could have been a little clearer though.

Don't sweat it. It's amusing is all. The designer of the Stinger is a good friend of mine and I came up with the name and logo. Took a while to come up with the name from a long list of a few hundred. Not surprised someone else would come out with a mass produced product of the same name. Low effort. There is no comparison between the two products so good luck to them I say.

HK's Stinger looks nothing like GBR's Stinger. In fact the GBR Stinger looks exactly like the HET Sniper which in turn looks like a miniature version of some of BVM's sport jets.

Why haven't I seen this Stinger? How come it didn't sweep the market like this Habu sled?

It's not mass produced like the Habu32. It's a fully composite airframe. Small batches are made by GBR Jet. Contact Marc at GBR Jet for more info.

See this should have been your first post. But instead you had to include a picture of the GRB Stinger with no hint of your true intentions. You turned out to look a tool in the process. Maybe next time you will think before you post.
