Will be $399.99 in the States, not sure if that's the BnF (pretty sure it is), or the PnP, but both will be available.

On my list for a ways down when I can get up the money.

I wouid Think that because retracts are a option that it would have to be a hand launch/belly lander UNlESS it also has fixed landing gear which I doubt!

$319.99 for the PnP. I'm in. I have so much fun with the F-27Q, this looks like an upgrade. Love the retracts and vectored thrust. Very cool!!!

So someone needs to get a hold of one next month and give us an honest speed measure in level flight. The nice thing about the F-27Q is its aerobatics at slow speed, and smoothness at high speed. The Scimitar looks like it will deliver the same, only more!

It says it comes with fixed gear so i dont think they want you to hand launch it.

Once upon a time there was a F-27Q, then the F-27QJR came along, then the CZ Big Daddy Wing drops in, swinging a 10x8 prop on a 32 series motor

Didn't see that part lol

Gear will likely slow it down a bunch

Should come with standard retracts

why is it so bloody expensive then.

I put my parkjet mkII together for the best part of $50 and im sure once its on a 3s it will be as fast as a stryker.

Just seems like a rip off to me.
