Does that make it a Triple Yuck?

Where are the HH UM WWI planes?

I'll wait until these are $80 before I even consider buying one. Then it will probably be mostly for parts for something that looks cool

They took one step back with this one in my opinion. I do like the airframe though

I wholeheartedly agree with your Triple Yuck . That astounding (high) price is bound to make that Extra 300 the first marketing failure for HH in a long string of hits. What are they thinking???????? Looks now like UMX = Ultra Mighty eXpensive!

Maybe the advance sales (including mine) for the Beast is clouding HH judgment for this step back! Hopefully they will "revert" to more reasonable pricing in the future.

No wonder they drive folks to HK.

I just don't see where they are getting that price from. If the BL Biplane Beast, is 170

How is this brushed single wing profile plane 160?

AR6400-60
Motor-10
2 ail servos- 40

110+Airframe=160? And that is retail price for us, it would be much cheaper for them to get those parts.

I'll pass on this one, too. I don't like the looks. Or the price. And I guess it would be too difficult for me to fly anyway.

'nother Yuck

Waiting on my Beast.....

Wish they came out with a micro brushless warbird.

My dream micro:Scale micro warbird with lights, flaps, retracts, clear canopy, brushless motor,x-port fordropping things, agreeable price tag,and is small enough to fit in a bike basket.

The micros that parkzone made are great!Touch and goes with the LG, can fly in a small park, lipo batteries, argreeable price, durable, and have extra options to expand. But with those extra details they make the micros even better!
