Give it a little while, maybe some cool new videos or something will surface!

There are like three different threads on these planes now, and I am only going to post on this one from now on. Anyways....I did hear back from Rich over at General Hobby. Here was his response.

"Hi,

We will contact China Pro for these 2 planes. We will add them to our inventory later.

Thanks for your information."

So that sounds promising. Here is hoping that he follows through and gets these planes. The next bit will be how much he will get them for and how much will shipping be for us poor folks on the wrong side of the country.

That certainly would be good, but the $160 postage to Australia is way too steep when others can do it for under half that price.

It’s interesting that for a country that seems to have quite a large RC contingency that there are no importers/dealers that can bring planes into Australia. Seems like HK is about it with their AU wearhouse. Not to get too off topic but what’s the history there if any?

There may well be but prices are quite high and they don't always bring in the special aircraft only the ones that sell to the majority.
We do not have a huge RC community we just talk loud......

I like their jets better than CMP's. Especially the L-39.

Unfortunately, I cannot find the servoless retracts, or the oleo struts anywhere on their website. When I saw these jets, I was shocked! The quality is fabulous! Why can't I find them anywhere?!?

I am most interested to see what you guys can find about our mysterious brand.

Now what is interesting is they now have the same airframe in two different paint schemes for two VERY different prices. If you look at the T-45 list price it was $10 more than the CMPro one, so logic would dictate that they CMPro Hawk shoule be $139 once they lower the price . One can only hope they get the L-39 and its price drops to $140. Then it is just the waiting game for next years free shipping codes on black friday.
