After the A380, 737 and 777, should I accept pre-order of over 2 meter Boeing 737(retractable landing gear system)? do you feel confidence Windrider team can accomplish this mission? this is my first challenge on year 2013.

747 yes, 2+ meter 737 no. I have a hard time loading and unloading the 1.9m one lol

Currently no large scale looking 747 is available for purchase so IMO will draw quite a few customers as everyone knows that the 747 jumbo jet is a iconic figure for years now since its first flight

By scale to use 70mm EDF, the wingspan need 1.9X meter, the length is 2.2 meter.
This plane is huge that we have to ship the whole kits by 2 parcels, one is the wings and fuselage, one is the remaining parts. So the shipping is double, is it a problem on the sales?

747 or Concorde. Bigger the better.

4x 64mm would be plenty to power a 747 that size or a tad smaller, 4x 70 in a larger WS is awesome too! It's actually quite possible to fit it all in one box depending on scale

Wings:
2x center sections (LG area/control center)
2x outer sections (joined with carbon tubes/rods like what eflite does)
2x winglets

Fuse:
2-3 sections
Elevator and Vertical stabs seperate

Highlights I'd like to see are:
Scale gears with scale doors
Cool livery schemes
Easy battery access (current 737 I have to slide batteries all the way forward)

I'd pre-order one and pay the s&h if needed
Then let the birth of a triple slot fowler flap be born, LE flaps, spoilers too much to list! Lol

Actually 2 parcels would work

One being the wings/engine pylons and housings
The other being the fuse sold with or without LG

This allows you to ship/sell spare parts while keeping the cost fixed unlike the 737 where shipping killed it.

It would have been nice to see the 777 over 2 meters cause naturally it's a larger aircraft than the 737 IMHO.What ever your next project will be you should have flaps pre cut.

Yes. My friend Callie will do the graphics. I used to fly for American. My 1st 737 is getting the old Astrojet graphics and my 2nd will have the new. I'm not that wild about the new look but I will have 2 birds with the old and the new.

I assume Ming, you mean 747, and yes, you should accept pre-order of the 747, even if it is two shipping boxes, 2.5 meter. I will buy one this instant.
