Couldn't help noticing that it doesn't say "coming soon" anymore.
Somebody please tell me where the line forms.

Not wanting to be critical but......

GWS is a fair sized company so could it be time to move to a web server that
DOESN"T HAVE POP UP ADVERTISING .....man it is annoying.
The web site has improved vastly over time but every time you click up comes another ad.

I know this is off topic but is there a retail outlet in Taiwan that will economically ship the range of GWS products and spares internationly namely to Oz. We cannot even get a replacement motor for the IPS down here. We smoke a motor and we are up for a whole motor gearbox set.....

I know there are the US based distributors, but i am trying to get away from dealing in US dollars seeing as the AUD is worth about 50 cents US.....
even the shipping costs really bite at those exchange rates...

anyone can help let me know thanks

Terry

The A-10 looks good, bring it on.
Is this going to be a foamy ARF like the TM and the sticks ?

And Dittos on the pop-ups. Man that's annoying.

TTT, there is a great little web-based (electric flight only) hobby store down in tassie. its called oze-flight and carries nearly the whole range of gws stuff. just email them and they can get you a replacement IPS motor, heat sink, or props or anything you want. it has great prices on everything and they are happy to answer any questions you have (with a swift reply). oze-flights gws prices are EXACLY or a little less than even america's prices (comparing the AU$/US$ value).

hope you find this useful.

A-10 street price in USA?

A-10 street price in USA?

I estimate should be $70 or less (include two set of EDF50s)

Is that OK? If you wish to pay less, GWS will also offer another choice to use 2 set of EDP50 direct drive. This will bring down the price as low as $55 or less!

$70 sounds reasonable. will there be a kit being put out thats unpainted? I think the A-10 would look great in straight Olive GI issue green. I use to see these jets in my days being GI joe back in the good ole '80s. And Im very gratfeul I will never be the sorry sap on the wrong end of one of them bad boys. When are they coming out?

It will be very interesting to see performance comparisons of the GWS A-10 with EDF and EDP power.

GWSCEO,
If the kit comes complete with 2 ducted fans for $70US, that sounds fair. I'm putting it on my Christmas wish list but might break down and buy it sooner. What battery/esc will be required and does it have ailerons? How many servos does it take? How much thrust do the 2 EDF units produce and how much does the plane weigh ready to fly.

I know I ask alot of quesitons but I like that plane!
