I expect quite a bit more than a polyester glass Habu that weighs a ton without anything in it.

Low volume masterpieces won't be cheap. I committed to a small run purchase so I could seethes thing at the field. j

Keep up the great work Rodger. The fuse was a work of art when you guys flew it at the Basin last.

Mold making research and development scratch building re-engineering
all takes a lot of time, your talking at least a year maybe two before an
actual production model can be produced. I am working on a project that
I will share with you guys in the near future and for a hint, think BIG...

Like a lot of things that come to market, they are not for everyone. for example, I would never own a pick-up no mater how it came....at any price.

I agree not bargain basement. But when SAPAC initially brought there stuff to the market it was not a lot cheaper and for many of us, much of what was included got swapped out. Motors/fans and retracts all got upgraded to move them closer premium products. You were still left with built up balsa wings and horizontal stabs.......and polyester resin glass.

I still believe their products were benchmark setters at great quality and value for their time. This F-20 is a level beyond that. J
