seems like theres a new release coming from E-Flite

Overview

Great sport looks coupled with the older nostalgia looks of biplanes from the 30s will maket his biplane stand out on the fight line.

Features

Strong and lightweight balsa and plywood construction
Multiple power options
Large magnetic battery hatch for easy access to electronics
Wing truss system for ease of assembly and disassembly
Designed to accept E-flite's 25 size fiberglass floats to give multiple flight options

My industrial spy, Boris Badenough, had camera problems but has sent me a drawing he made of the new Rhapsody. This drawing was made at great personal risk as he says he was attacked by a swarm of mCX2 helicopters as he was making his escape. I hope this will tide you over until E-flite releases information. Sorry about the lack of detail but Boris is artisticly challenged.

Great!

Great! another beautiful bipe. I guess I'll have to buy this one to go with my Stearman. Then I gues I should also buy the Ultimate to make my set complete
