the planes look fine, but don't forget they were made for surveillance, not recreational FPV. So if you're not a peeping tom and actually want to have fun, there are far more capable platforms out there ...

Watchout for these guys, I just got an email saying the P/T is out of stock. They did not say that when I ordered and they took my Paypal payment.

Adnan,

PM sent.

I am very interested in your foam 169cm plane. I am looking for something with better glide performance than my heavy easystar and the hatch for getting too internal electronics looks like a great bonus. Please give us more details. Have you any video of it flying posted online?
