Your kid cried because you're not flying enough Robust!!
We got through the Jan list and now on the Feb list, shipped out some kits a few days ago so there should be more in people's hands now!

Just sold one of my own Neos' to a new guy locally who needed planes, we let him throw it on his 2nd day throwing (and no RC experience) and he already reached 52 meters.... he's got potential!

Few days later he was flying someone's beater in high winds, first day holding a remote and already flying by himself and looking like a pro, the local new guys are better and better!!! Not a week previous, another new guy with no RC experience (I think) did some light launches on his DLG, first time throwing already 47 meters.... helps that he's a professional badminton player I guess!!

Those are looking great! That red really pops. Hmmm maybe red for my next Neos

I did get a quick maiden done on mine the other day. It was almost dark, windy, cold and the ground had just thawed so it was slippery as all heck. I got about a dozen 1/4 to 1/2 power throws. I couldn't wind up any more than that in my dress shoes and pants (ran over right after work) or I would of ended up on my ars. But it is very promising. I think the CG is close, every things feels good. I need a good day to get a lot of good hard throws on it to know for sure but I am really excited about this one.

I'll try to get some quality pics of mine up. I was waiting on some sun but not sure thats going to happen?

Glad it arrived quickly and safely Palle!! Please be sure to let us know how it flies!
Nice looking plane Juan Remember to let me know next time you're in town! Any chance you'll be in town at the end of October as well? We have a nice contest planned...
Matt, that is sounding like a good start, hope the weather clears and warms up for you soon, we are blessed here with year-round flying, don't know if I would survive if we only flew part of the year!! Well... summer's a bit hot here but we manage

I'm starting work on my own planes now, first up are the fuselage installations. We won't get any wings for myself for a little whiles yet until production speeds up a bit. I do have some special things planned for these 3 planes though to test out some things that I am hoping we might be able to implement on our future kits.

Finally had some time to sit down and start work on my 3 Neos fuselages yesterday before and after all the different family reunions. Spend about 3 hours getting the first fuse built, with a 1s3p 1080mah lipo (~27g), a switchjack (4.5g), a RG631B, and 2* JR318 (equiv of JR188).

Have two more on the bench, one of them with the exact same setup, and one for my light weight plane with the same 1s3p 1080mah lipo, a switchjack, a RG411BL, 2* JR318, and 2* JR385 (4-in-pod). That's the plan anyway..lol!

Now I just got to clear up more waitlist planes so I can get a set for myself
