So there IS a Radian Pro, just like Tango Juliet said?
And after all those people doubted his honesty ( and said so), no apologies from them? Wow..

Went back and saw a few. But I was afraid for a while that some folks were gonna hang him for a while for not taking better pics.

I think I'll pass on ailerons, but I sure could have used flaps this afternoon. That plane will float forever!

Knowing horizon they will relase it late this month early next. Then the first shipment will not be enough to cover the amount of preorderd birds (Im going to try my best to get mine as soon as possible). Then they might get another shipment to the LHS before christmas and if they do chances are they will be sold out in the stores.

I believe they call it a good business plan. The first shipment well most likely be sold before they even ship and the first round of Pro's will not be enough for everyone. Then after everyone who got a Radian Pro has uploaded videos, reviews, comments and remarks more people will want one. Then the second shipment will come in. If the Pro ends up being as good as the Radian the second shipment will sell out and there will still not be enough planes for everyone to buy. That will guarentee that people will be wanting and willing to pay for a new plane that horizon has put out for at least 4 months if not more.

yep here in Australia soon as the shipment arrives of normal Radians, they show the no stock sign about a week later

sure is a popular glider and i for one will pre order the moment the "Pro" shows up on our importers site, as i to reckon it will sell out before it even arrives

cheers chuck

Ya know you can't even get a replacement fuse so getting a Pro might be just wishing even after they announce them.

Horizon has a bad habbit of letting planes and parts run out of stock right before they release something new. I had the UM sukhoi v2 and I couldnt get a fuse for the better part of a month and then they released the new Sukhoi XP and they were in stock again. Same with the mCX and the mCX2. I dont understand them sometimes.

well they havent officially announced it yet so you cant order it yet. once it has been announced you can order it from you LHS or direct from horizon as well as a ton of other websites.

As previously pointed out, Tango J. is not he owner and he simply brought the info about the model to RCG.

I assume this is a sarcastic post about him being a great guy due to his selling price.... Why shouldn't he sell it for as much as he can get? It is a one of a kind item currently and should bring a nice selling price if the demand is there. There is nothing wrong with that.


From Wikipedia.
Supply and demand is an economic model of price determination in a market. It concludes that in a competitive market, the unit price for a particular good will vary until it settles at a point where the quantity demanded by consumers (at current price) will equal the quantity supplied by producers (at current price), resulting in an economic equilibrium of price and quantity.
The four basic laws of supply and demand are
If demand increases and supply remains unchanged then higher equilibrium price and quantity.
If demand decreases and supply remains the same then lower equilibrium price and quantity.
If supply increases and demand remains unchanged then lower equilibrium price and higher quantity.
If supply decreases and demand remains the same then higher price and lower quantity.


I would say the lack of supply is in his favor at the moment. And again, what is wrong with that?

I went to Hobby show last Saturday....

A Horizon Hobby guy said he knew nothing about a Radian Pro and any pictures, unless they came from Horizon Hobby ,were probably "somebodies idea of fun" ...
