Looks awesome! It would be neat to see a smaller version for the parkflying crowd. I love the smoked bubble canopy. It would be great to see a model of Bobby Younkin's open cockpit version of Samson too.

Nice pics!

Hey it looks like these bad boys will be available at dealers in the US in the first half of June. $300 for the ARF only. Not sure of a price with power set yet. Sounds like supply is very limited, so if you have an interest, let me or your favorite Hyperion dealer know so they can get one for you. To contact me, I prefer email responses or PM rather than directly in the forum.

Thanks - Chris

We now have the Samson available for pre-order. I don't yet know the specifics on the power set, but this can always be added later. We will be ordering the recommended Hyperion digital servos as well as the appropriate size props and batteries and will add them by next weekend. And these can always be added to your pre-order. Just click the picture on our home page for more details and pictures.

Chris

Something in the Power 60 class works well on a 16X8 or 16X10 depending on kV, battery, etc.

Good News.....the container arrived today and all I can say is WOW. This is, IMHO the best looking Hyperion aircraft to date. This thing is so well packaged (almost like a cardboard coffin), that even if you unwrap like a 10 year old at Christmas....it's going to take you 30 minutes to get it out for "inspection" . Preorders should start shipping tomorrow.

Also in this container, the new FW190 D9, some of the new mini Reno Racers as well as the much awaited return of the Hyperion Reno Racers.
