Well, a gentleman named Ray bought the kit 5 years ago and then it sat in a box in the corner of his shop. His friends Geronimo (Master Builder) and Tony (Futaba sponsored jet pilot) pulled it out recently and finally finished it.

It's powered by two of these: http://www.troybuiltmodels.com/items/JCATP140RX.html

It weighs 64 lbs and my guess is it costs 20K. Whew!

Yeah, the Velox is one of my all time favs. The little 3S blue/white/black one was my first 3DHS planes. My buddy Lance taught me to do FULL POWER BLENDERS with it. I was hooked!
