Beautiful little bird! I'm interested but it will be around $360 to get her in the air. Price point may be a problem for Horizon on this one. We'll see......

Different wingspan. Different weight. Still conceptually very close tough.

The kit is a tad bigger, which I think will make it nicer to fly. A bit more stable. And the ability to easily add an interior

129 for the ARF kit is not too bad, considering. I'm shure many will be fitting it out with aftermarket electronics, reducing all up cost. Lemonrc is producing low cost stabilized DMSX Rx's, expect a mini size soon.
