EPP ICON-A5 Wingspan 1400mm

Hello.

Now I introduce new EPP RC ICON-A5 Wingspan 1400mm.

This plane has developed by ACE Model. www.acemodel.co.kr
All flying weight is only 780g with battery Rhino 3s 1550mA.

To build this kit is so easy and simple.



This video is my maiden flight of EPP ICON-A5.

Clicking on the link to the MFG.
There are very few words in English.
Also need a currency converter.
If I was ready to buy today, I would not be able to without a translator, and I don't need it that bad.

It's $74 and looks like a winner but it needs a link, in English, for ordering.

+1
Your planes seem great (both the 1m and 1.4m versions), you need to supply it to the world (either directly or with a US or UE or HK or .... based distributor).

That web site drove me nuts. Get a US site up and running and I just might buy one of these models. It appears to fly very well. Tom

It's listed at www.easytigermodels.com at $189. That's a pretty good markup from what it's listed for in Korea at about $80. Easytigermodels seems to specialize in high priced models but if you really wanted one, this would be a place to try and they are based in New York, as an importer.

Parkcityskier,
I know of this plane/website, but it does not appear to be the same, exact plane. The Korean one does not have wingtip floats, neither does the full size version. The Korean model has sponsons as does the full size version. So I think these 2 models do not appear to be the same? Agree?

I do not think the Icon from ETM is the same one as listed in this thread.

Note the differences in the sponson, the fact that one has tip floats and the other does not, etc.

Also, there is no mention of equipment in this threads model, and the ETM one is PnP.

Nitroplanes shows the same one as ETM, but as an RTF, with TX and RX and lipo, no charger, for just 129.95....but they are out of stock, as they often are.
