That is great how efficient it flies, along with your video....it makes me want one even more. Very Nice.

I can bring these into the USA if anyone is interested.
To save any money on shipping, I would have to make
a group order of at least 5 pieces. Who's in??
The price would be $239 PNP + $65 shipping.
It will get cheaper if we group order 10 pieces.
PM me to get your name on the list.
You will not need to pay until the list is complete.
I will accept Paypal or credit card by phone order.

Which version, the RED or the BLUE (a la PW-RC)? Or maybe something else?

Right now it would be the red version for sure.
I will see if the blue decals sheets are also available.

The Blue one has a painted nose and tail along with the decals...I just got mine from PW-RC. Funny thing, the decals have an "off white" color to them, will have to cut that portion out to have it look correct.

Cheers,
Steve

I would invite you to visit our website:

We are not going to disappear.
I like these airplanes and thought I could help.
I am in contact with the factory right now.

Please give us a little tour of this plane. I'd like to know what the differences are. Pictures would be nice.

I bought one of these just over a week ago from ElectricWingman in the UK : http://www.electricwingman.com/other-rc-planes.aspx

I bought the ARTF as I don't have much time for building these days. I was a bit wary of how good the electronics would be considering the price, but I was pleasantly surprised. The servos are very fast and the centering isn't bad at all. There are pre-installed y-leads in the fus for the flap and aileron servos, meaning that in theory you could use a 5ch Rx.

The motor/esc/bec are all unbranded like the servos, but the installation done at the factory is quite neat. I haven't flown the model yet but it seems to have plenty of power from the static tests i've done using a 4S lipo.

The quality of the foam moulding is awsome, better than some of the MPX kits i've seen, and very few 'pimples' that I normally expect to find hundreds of on moulded foam kits.

I did a few modifications to mine as I assembled it which extended the build time, but I think you could probably get one of these flying with a couple of evenings work. It seemed to take me longer to apply all the decals than to actually build the model!

The mod's I did were as follows :

1) Carved out the spats so that I could use 70mm diameter wheels.
2) Replaced the M3 nuts and bolts for the wheel axles with M4 equivalents
3) Removed some of the plastic from the top of the tube in the fus (which routes the flap/aileron y-leads) and cut some of the surrounding foam away so that it's easier to tuck the servo wires in when attaching the wing.
4) Added a couple of locking collars to the nose wheel pivot point so that the steering arm had better alignment with the pushrod (tip from bungymania).
5) Enlarged the holes in the washers that are glued to the underside of the wing by 2mm, this makes locating the blind-nuts in the fus with the wing bolts really easy.

I can't wait to fly this model and see what the stock setup is capable of as it looks really promising. As soon as the weather permits i'll get some video.

Si.

Nitrouss - Gonna get me the kit from Santa I think. After reading the Bungymania article, think I'm gonna go Turnigy 4250-580 on 5S (already have a few of these packs). I've read a few sites saying you need 4 x 9g servo's, and 2 x 17g servo's. Can you tell me exactly what bits you used, how many extension leads etc...

Thanks

Will run nice on 5s too

Here's my setup:

Turnigy AerodriveXp SK Series 42-40 750Kv / 600W (Hobbycity)
Sky-wing 60A ESC w/5A bec (really cheap; $10 + shipping) (Ebay)
Rhino 4s 3700mah 20c (Hobbycity)
Servos: HD-1900A Power HD Micro 1,5kg 9g on flaps (9g works fine on flaps too, at least so far), HXT900 on rudders. (x5. need one extra on elevator with my mod...)
Prop: 12x6, very efficient but not so powerful. 14x7, more power but still 10 min. flytime.

Did u mean servocable extensions?

I used 60cm cables for rudder and elevator. Y-cabel on elevator. Flaps and aileron use 2 channels each and are mixed together on the radio for more precise trimming. Here i used 5, 10 and 15 cm cables to get the correct length without having too much cable inside the fuse. These cables cost only a cpl of dollars for a 10 pack from hobbycity...
