I'm not seeing the CMP Ventus listed on Nitroplanes website anymore after showing out of stock for months... and being told way back in February that they would have them in six weeks. I cancelled my order way back then as I wouldn't have been in north america when it was delivered if the six weeks had been true..
Too bad.. it and the older Discus (which is also not on the website anymore), are both nice scale birds for the price. At least mine are!
I ended up getting a Discus last October in the UK after nothing but frustration in North America!
Even if not entirely true to scale, both look like nice scale sailplanes.... The Ventus would actually be a Discus 2B as the kit has no flaps.. and the real Ventus does... just sayin'
Glad I managed to pick up one of each.. would have been nice to have gotten another.. As it is, the Discus looks so nice, and now that it looks irreplacable, I don't want to risk flying it!
