Looks very promising, like a mini Sebart Miss Wind - from 3.20...

Hobbyking - Neat Fair 2013 Day 4 final day (8 min 29 sec)


Nothing on build material, price or release date though - this video is seemingly all there is right now.

I can't wait to get some more info about it! I just hate having to wait so long. You've been teasing it for months now.

She looks pretty cool! Brightly colored indeed! The first Durafly aerobatic, non-military themed model, no?

Reminds me a little of the original EP Great Planes Reactor Bipe? If she flies anything like that one did, should be a winner IMO.

Interesting.
Hobbyking had also just released a conventional balsa construction plane quite similar to the Miss Wind, the Mellizo (heavier, different wing attach design)

https://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/...80mm_ARF_.html

I guess imitation is the sincerest form of flattery

Just watched the video. Flight didn't seem to show any precision capability of the aircraft (something the Miss Wind is definitely known for). Just a lot of "tossing it around". Curious to see if it is a "pattern" or "3d" type plane.

I have yet to find one.

Given the cost of the Mellizo, plus shipping to the USA, it seems to be a better deal to just buy the Sebart Miss Wind.
IIRC, the new US Importer for Sebart was offering 25% off all Sebart planes thru December.
