This looks really interesting:

Not much info that i can find via google. Not reviews or discussions, not even a video.

Anyone know anything?

Hi Gerry,
OK- with today's exchange rate and shipping to CT in the USA it comes to 130 pounds or $216. A little pricey... But not totally out of the question.

It's just not fair...
We in the USA keep getting taunted by all the new scale ST Models planes that aren't being imported for some reason? First the new & improved "M" version of the DG-1000m, then the ARCUS. Now, a retractable edf SALTO...how cool is that!

Tom, I feel your pain. Shame you can't get a fair deal on shipping.

And that fan retract mechanism is just so awesomely cool.

This looks like the same info as Gerry_ linked to, but with a few more photos, another video, and the manual -

I'm getting one from Tower also.. Gotta change the scheme on it though, , get rid of the red nose, and the red around the fuse ect.. I saw one on U tube that was done up in blue trim, and EDF housing,, ''It looked a lot better''.. I'll keep red or orange for the bottom on mine.... Ian... P/S,,, ''they look like they fly great''....

Has any one placed a back order at Tower for this? I have the ST DG1000, FOX and Blaze and have been very impressed with ST. This looks like too much fun. Can't wait!
