This is done so well there is no reason to mod anything other than adding a rudder. Very nice. I can see why this would be your new favourite.

If its Freewing did they use the same mechanical retract as they have been putting in their previous models?
Those struts look familiar; like the FlyFly struts http://www.ejf.com/index.php?main_pa...roducts_id=472. Are they?

$400.00 and all you drop in is a 7 channel Rx. How can one resist!
The SU34 was announced was announced around the same time a year ago and they didn't get here till summer. Any idea when they will deliver? ANd like the SU-34 will they be coming in other colour schemes?

When you get a chance could you add a pic of the battery bay and the EDF area with the hatch open.

Much thanks.

We will have an Airframe only version available. Freewing is building these to our specs and input. We brought the project to them to manufacture for us. The good news is just like with our eRC B-25 that delivered on time. These Eurofighters will be here in less than 3 weeks! Yeah Baby, just in time for warmer weather. Anyone want to get together for a gaggle of Euro's at SEFF?

Nope, there are two separate inlet holes with the nose wheel retracting into a middle section. Photo attached. Also a photo of the battery area.

I haven't seen this version yet, but I'm pretty sure it will have the frame, edf unit, TV nozzles, retracts, and servo extensions. You'll need to provide the servos, motor, esc, battery and receiver.

Ah ha! If my eyes are seeing correctly I'll take one in the dark grey please!
Will the Frame only price be the standard HL $129? OOOwwwww just posted $229 frame only http://www.hobby-lobby.com/erc_eurof...96381_prd1.htm .
The battery bay looks like it would take a 5000 6S with very little work. Glad there was no battery cage again. Very easy to adjust CG.

Now where to put the camera???

Hubba hubba....

This is a perfect platform for a bit of EDF FPV action too, especially with that nice big and detailed cockpit!

I've been hunkering for a good replacement for my old SAPAC Eurofighter than bought the farm after a servo failure, but since then I've always been hesitant of buying planes which I could not easily get replacement parts for... for that reason the parkzone habu is really tempting to me, but it just doesn't hold a candle to this in terms of features or looks.

Does hobby lobby have decent international shipping rates to europe?

Haven't seen it mentioned but would appear the foam is EPS rather than EPO.

I'm VERY interested! I do have to ask, however, if there's a way to fly it with the nozzles fixed for those who aren't interested in TV flight? Or a non-TV version?

Yes.
You can just not hook them up to your Rx and put a screw threw through the TV unit or you can remove it all together. If you remove it you'ld likely have to make tail nozzles. A few did this with the Freewing SU34 and the F35.

Jason the thought crossed my mine... you guys are going to have half the shipments go to europe right They are going to be all over this which means if you don't want to wait order it now!?

Jason, Will you have this at SEFF? I will be at my first SEFF this year and would like to see this one in person before jumping in. By all appearances it is a killer bird. Might be my first 90mm plane who knows .
