Kyosho Balsa Micro DR1

Why dont Kyosho USA pick up the PRIMA class line and bring it here?!?!!? The park size ones are all beautiful, and the new micros are staggering! Fully built up balsa airframes,very scale,2s, on and on......Here is a link to the DR1, I need to get hooked up with someone from the east, I dont think I can live without this little DR1! 19in span and 150 grams of perfection.

That's a cool looking plane! The transparent red covering reminds me of the Dr1 1/48 scale Aurora plastic kit, which was molded in metallic dark red styrene. Any idea about its price?

Not a clue, its not coming to the USA as far as I know, same goes for the other three balsa arf micros they have, a Camel, SE5, and a neiuport 17. Not to mention all the other PRIMA class stuff.....C'mon Kyosho USA, get us round-eye's some of these planes!

I noticed that as well, but a month or so ago they werent on the Kyosho site when I looked, and all those micro pics say they are prototypes.......Not sure what the deal is with the dates on the site, but I am fairly sure there have not been around since 07, mainly based on the lack of good micro gear and 2s brushless setups in this size. I may be wrong, but Im pretty sure these are brand new.

Actually that is very sound reasoning!

Definitely weird or misleading but perhaps there will be more info out there soon.
