My only concern is that Kin seems to put out a ton of stuff but I never see reviews or flights on it. It's like everything that gets produced then vanishes and nobody ever talks about it again. I'm hoping this isn't an indication of quality issues or "it flew once and only once" kinda stuff.

Sorry not trying to poke the tiger or start problems but why is it I never see anything else on these models except for Kins flight vids and then...nothing.

Pete,
I have and F-15 and Hawk (70mm) that I will do a seperate build thread on each and show how they come from the factory and go over the gear I'm putting in each one..

Ok update is that they will be sold as two seperate models, but the hump needs to be epoxied on during the build.. However they will be painted to match in with the rest of the model at the factory.. no pricing just yet for the "avionics" version..

Keith the A-4 has a length of 47.25" and a wingspan of 35.43". After watching Kin's videos on this jet I can only imagine how awesome this jet will fly on a high powered 6s or 8s setup.

best regards,
William

Do you really think its going to be available by Monday next week?And why would the avionics hump not just be an accessory instead of a different Kit?
