Here I will present build of our new model - Hellfire.
It is a variation of our well known Ramiel but with increased roll rate.
It will not replace the Extreme version (for a few reasons that I will explain later on)
Build will start in a few hours with plenty of pictures to follow - can't wait !!

The original Ramiel has proved extremely popular with flyers around the world, receiving numerous accolades from its pilots, beginners to expert alike. Not wanting to rest on their laurels, Flying-Dog canvassed the opinion of these owners and based on this feedback, tasked its designers to make the best even better.
The biggest criticism of the old “Ram” was the roll rate wasn't quite fast enough; with this in mind our crack team went to work:
Firstly, the ailerons’ size has been increased by 20%, with the addition of counter-balances at the tips.
To minimise the axial inertia, the outboard wing mass has been lowered by thinning the wing towards the tips; this has the added bonus of improving the snaps.
Sticking with this theme, we also recommend foregoing the SFG’s to lower tip mass, but don’t panic you SFG lovers, they’re still included in the kit should you want to fit them!
In-flight this translates into a faster rolling, more axial airframe, with crisper stops and better agility.
We like ‘em stiff, so there’s additional carbon, in particular the inclusion of 0.7mm strip to inset into the horizontal section, stiffening the rear of the fuselage and improving tail authority and accuracy. There’s even the option of aileron bracing, complete with very 'bling' carbon supports.
All Depron and EPP models are UV printed and although surprisingly durable, they can start to look tatty after a few impacts, particularly the nose section as it takes the brunt of most crashes. We wanted the all new, Gaz Holland scheme to look its best for as long as possible, so his cunning design leaves the front part plain white – it even means any repairs are easier to hide.
Ramiel Hellfire. EPP that fly's like Depron

I've finally got my finger out and ordered one of these. It arrived the other day and the quality is as good as any shocky ive bought previously. Really good looking model and fantastic scheme. Genius idea on the white "crash replaceable" nose! :-)
Im off to Angola for work on Friday but back in a week so will get a few build picks and hopefulky a flying video aswell.
Massive thanks to Rob at flying dog for getting this to me, really looking forward to some EPP madness!
