What I would like from E-flite

I would love it if they would make .25 size replicas of the H9 Warbirds with retracts. P-47 first.

Great suggestion, guys. I would purchase one -- in a second. I'd love to have a Jug that size -- probably would have a wingspan in the 45" to 48" range. I would prefer a razorback, even tho I think the existing H-9 jub is a bubble canopy.

My top preferences for new .25 size versions of those H-9 birds would be a P-40, followed by a Hellcat. Maybe it will happen someday.

Well then, here ya go!
Hobby Lobby's new P-47

It's not an E-Flite but if you've followed the "E-Flite bring back the jug thread" you'll see that they've made it clear that there are not going to. So, for all of us who have wanted another LARGER, foam version than all the Alfa's that are out there it seems are dream has come true in Hobby Lobby's new release!! I believe this will be as close as we can come in a foam version, unless someone else has something that they haven't announced at SEFF yet.

It is 40"+, already has retracts and has areas for flaps as well! Scroll down to post #24 on page 2 of the thread in the above link and you'll see some pics of it. Although not a Razorback version (dang it) I'm not complaining one bit.

BTW...we can thank Pearladdict for all the info. on this particular model. He has followed it for us ever since he saw it hanging in Hobby Lobby's store a few weeks back and was asked (at that time) to not release any pics of it. He held to his word and waited until it showed up at SEFF. Thanks Pearladdict, you rock dude!

I just wish they keep coming with as great looking and flying foam warbirds as the Hawker Seafury.

Too bad they already plan on discontinuing this one... can't believe it.

Thanks Stuart !

Pictures made with a Nikon D40x DSLR and DX 55-200 VR zoom kit lens.
Shutter priority: 1/1000 or 1/800 s.

This basic Nikon kit sold with 17-55 and 55-200 VR lenses was a great value for money IMO.

The P-47 from hobby-lobby is just a bit to small. I want copies of the H9 warbirds like the Pulse .25 was to the Pulse .40.

What I'd really like is a Razorback from Hyperion ... their other 25e birds are so ridiculously nice.
