Hey Guys,

The New Speedo Pro just arrived in our shop. Just opened the box and so far it is very impressive. Pictures will follow. Still have more available from this shipment if you want to get your hands on one.

the fuselage seems a bit long. 1m?

I don't think it looks good to be honest, because the wing tips look like they are missing.

It's that nostalgia / retro look Tom, like a Mk 1 Alpina !

I would buy one.
But will it be better than the original speedo?
And I'm happy enough with my original speedo.
Its endearing qualities is it was lite and cheap.

We'll only know that when there are some vids uploaded.

You should have them very soon. Yours is packed up and waiting for FedEx to pick it up.

This thing looks really good to me. Like that S6062 section, should be very aerobatic. Will be stoked to check one out in person!

Not sure about those two carbon rod joiners tho. The orig design had the wings sat on top of the fuse with tape and couple of screws which dissipated the load well on impact and saved the wings.
S6062 I think that's same as on the psycho. Yummy.

Are they 're-badged' Jart LT wings?

I ordered one! I hope it has some type of manual with it, at least give me the CG half accurate. How are the wings secured to the fuse?
