I've never seen a Sonic Liner personally but like canards and what is better than the quality of a Multiplx?

Yes a DC3 would be great too!

Nice if it had a cargo ramp for dropping stuff.

Sounds like a plan to me ...Don't let that guy from germany see this or he will go on and on forever about how no one wants this plane again and he will just state facts as he says. There is another thread started by Mr GTX in support of the Sonic Liner, and all this "other guy " did was give him S@%*..over it .So for the record i am in support of The
Sonic Liner again. This time in a different time period where the "electric planes" are just as good as the nitro planes I think it would be a good seller

I would love a twin that I can use my 2 1000kv turnigy motors in. If they want to really impress me, make it a beechcraft baron .

I wonder if perhaps Multiplex is considering a dedicated FPV platform like the Skywalker? Currently the ES2 is the best suited plane for FPV, but it's a bit too small as most serious FPV pilots are looking at 1700-1900mm wing span.

The EasyGlider has the right performance, but the prop is in the wrong location, and it's interior too small.

This won't happen. I won't repeat the various reasons.

When the Sonic Liner was on the market, electric power was already the most popular power for foam models and the performance was better than nitro, but a brushless drive system was much more expensive back then.

That being said, a model like the Sonic Liner did not need a brushless drive system for "better than scale" performance.

Jürgen

P.S.: What I would like to see from MPX? A re-designed Twin-Jet optimized for two outrunners, this time with symmetrical airfoil, a carbon spar and optional canards.

I'd like to some innovation along the lines of a quad/conventional hybrid (quadventional?) that can do VTOL and transition to forward flight.

That's an easy one :

Solius - an electric glider with brushless motor and folding prop, equipped with four servos for ailerons, elevator and rudder.

Special features: Clear canopy, detailed cockpit, innovative tubular wing spar to cope with high flight loads, strong fuselage using new M-SPACE-technology.

Wing span: 2160mm, Weight with 3s-LiPo: approx. 1260g

Suitable for thermal soaring and aerobatics.
