Kyosho 50 Size Kawasaki Hein

Many of you have already seen Kyoshos FW190 ARF that is available as an electric version or as a nitro version. I am just finishing up the RCGroups/Ezone review of it and it is an absolutely fantastic ARF, from the moment you pull the parts out of the box to the moment the retracts tuck up into the wing to the moment that you land it with the split flaps deployed. The review will be live soon!

Some of you (myself included!) Are eagerly awaiting the next release in the series, the Spitfire. I have seen the GP version available but I am not sure the EP version is quite out on the street yet?

Kyosho is not yet finished releasing these incredibly detailed and full featured flying models!! The third in the series will be a Kawasaki Hein! The photo gets my blood pumping, as it looks awesome!

Way to go Kyosho!!

it does look cool! I purchased the last of the hein kits from the old batch. Tim at kyosho says they should have the e versions maybe for the Chrismas season...I hope so...I also have the spit and it looks great but these days I seem to sell "e" vs gas 4 to 1..So hopefully they get some in stock pretty soon

I have the pKyosho Prima class hein. It is a very well put together 40 " span model. A bigger one would be nice.

Is there a US distributor for these? I have been interested in some of their planes in the past but I can never find the ones I like in the US.

You can get them from many LHS, from Scott at Airland Hobby (turbonut above) or direct from Kyosho at Kyosho America (google it up!)

That "Tony" looks awesome. I bought one of the glow powered ones before they were gone, with the intent of making it "electron" powered. It is a nice kit, with the split flaps and having the retracts already done is a plus. I was hoping to have it operational already but got distracted with my UF-190. The plan is to put a E-flite 46 with a 5cell under the hood.

If you are asking about the prima class, then no. The prima class would be to expensive for the masses. That is why the prima class is not available in North America.

Uh-oh I'm getting confused---I know, doesn't take much. But this plane is a new plane that will be both glow and electric like the 190 or just electric. And there was an "old" version was just glow?
