Pre-ordered (-$30) without battery, radio & charger is $269.

It looks like it will be also offered in the "Skyblazers" scheme.

Tony

Nice-looking plane, but...after all these great new electric retracts have come out for planes of this size category, who wants to hassle with air retracts anymore?

the problem with electric retracts is when you hard land most of the times a servo is stripped.. and you need to make a surgery to remove it.. maybe it's better at least for large plaens to have those retracts
