Darn you Dave, your going to bankrupt me yet if you keep coming up with so many great planes. Not to mention I'll have to find a larger home to hold them all.

Now I will go and place my preorder.

Dave, buddy, you're killing me! First you bring out the updated SPITFIRE I have been losing sleep waiting for, right after releasing that cool SE5a which is so nice looking and now is on the wanna have list, then you announce the STRIKER UMX which is an ABSOLUTE must have, right behind the Spitty, now you go and release this amazing plane. I was seriously looking at the REAL Icon and thinking it would be just a fun plane to have, and here you go and put this one out! Already at the LHS and lining up first dibs on the Spitty, Striker and now this one!

If I get divorced because of all this I may be showing up at your Illinois offices looking for a cot!

Great job this year on all the new releases! (The Eflite SBach is sweet looking as well, as is the Blade 450, but I have to put those on the back burner behind all these other great releases!)

Seriously amazing year from HH!

I wish they would have made it a true amphib. It comes with landing gear that you have to take off when in the water. I have seen other A5's that have retractable gear that you can lower in the water and taxi up onto land.
