Are these on the Atlanta Hobbies site? If so, can somebody help me out as it's a mystery.

What are they selling for? It's always been one of my favorite designs but they seem to be more elusive than anything else out there.

If it's not on the Atlanta Hobbies site, and you're the only importer in the US, why is it missing?

Twister 2 arrives in New Zealand

The courier just dropped off a large box and sitting in there was two twisters. I got these off David Leigh from http://www.rc-sailplane.com.au

These models are a real work of art. A little more fragile than what im used too (Taboo GT's). The build should be interesting, I am not going with the pull spring method. Instead I am using .8mm carbon rod inside teflon tubing securing it in the fuse. The wings will have DS09's SCD and D47's in the fuse. A PL Daniels 5V regulator with the low voltage alarm, a 2 cell 300mah ecoflight lipoly and a 6250 rx.

I will post a flight report when completed

.08mm is about 3 thousandths of an inch. About the thickness of a human hair or a piece of paper. Sounds small to me.

You didn't fly the 2 yet. It did another first and second place in a eurotour contest yesterday in the persons of Peter Aanen and me, myself and i. Everybody that flies the 2 says it better then the one.
you just need to experience it before to believe it.
