Here was a few pictures I took. I couldn't get better pics as their booth was crowded for quite some time and I didn't want to wait.

Expected release date: March
Very nice. Wish I could have been there. From previous experience with new model releases, I'm guessing a projected March arrival will turn out to be May or June in the US.

I completely agree. It's not very common to see the product arrive on their projected date.

Thats a good deal for a fully loaded 6S EDF. Only thing I don't see are the lights from the larger version.

The intakes are the biggest I've seen yet on the 90mm, probably to feed a 12-14 blade fan they are going with.

Less to go wrong and fix in case of a less than perfect landing

LOL, that's for sure. The more complex the airframe, the more potential problems that can occur.

Wazzzuuupppp Curlamoe #2!

They didn't say anything on the power system other than its a high blade count 90mm system on 6S.

I hope the snow is amazing! Wish I was shredded the slopes too!

Sounds so awesome man!

There was only one other jet at the show that interested me. It's a composite Mini Avanti S 90mm EDF and comes with all metal electric retracts for $499. Tony and I saw the jet and we're impressed. He started a thread on it.
