Chris I appreciate your info and videos, the good news is that FMS is going larger !!!
Seems to be a great option for the guys like me that were flying the larger fuel birds in the 70" plus span !!!
FMS seems to really be dialed in at 55mm so I am sure they will get the larger formats correct in no time .
Now I just need to save more funds !!!

Hi,
I understand that this news could make some people surprised or suspicious...
It is so amazing to see how foamies become larger in a so short time...

I also have news on delivery time: ? Haha, maybe for end of the year...

About schemes: ? no idea.

So will tell you ASAP.

Chris

No.

The plane that BH will be selling is only 1600mm (63") and is manufactured by Shenzhen Lanxiang ( http://lxhm.en.alibaba.com/ )

This Corsair from FMS reportedly has a 1700mm wingspan (66") and that's about all we know about it. We haven't seen pictures of it yet.

Well, about our shop:

I work with my wife, and she is the boss! At first she was dealing only rc toys, and I was working as technical manager in stores and boat Layout (last work was on the Norvegian Epic http://www.epic.ncl.com/the-ship/). Then I deceided to join her in early 2010, and develop the range of models.

We are lucky to work at home, our warehouse of 300sq m. is just our house.
We try do do our best to provide good products, and strive to convince manufacturers do improve products and manufacturing process, but it is not so easy everyday.

I try as much as possible showing you videos of unboxing and fly test, but time is missing, and I have to buy a real HD cam.

I'm not here to sell anything, just share with you good news, and good time. I'm not assiduous, but do my best to come everyday... I participate more on RC GROUPS than on french forums, because 1st, I'm a saler, and usually rebuffed. And thread take many many times to progress, only small part of models are raised....

So I will continue to come here, and talking with you, my "hobby friends".

Thank you for your simpathy.

Chris

Cheers Chris, I was looking at your site only the other day. I like it and think you contribute a great deal to these threads.

Keep up the good work (and the posting on RCG).

Get both!

I have the 1400 V2 and it's really a sweetheart. No complaints. I just added flaps today to finish it off.
