I think you can pretty much count on that, Bob. Jiri's mold quality, build quality and stiffness are truly amazing.

Can't wait to fly it.

Sweet Daryl, it looks like a beauty!
The light but hard shell finish Jiri achieves on his models is amazing. Can't wait to hear about the flyability.

Million miles an hour in the pics already!

Daryl, I just through a gontlet down in a wide open field in Perris CA. I wrote
A few names on the inside cuff, but your new plane might help you find it and pick it up.

That's the plan, Aaron. I've got this little commitment in South Africa in a month or so, but after that... I may start playing again. This model suits my style. If only it was a T-tail....

Deep, I can't wait to hear how it goes for you. I have my eyes on the Fosa Lift too. Really need to see it go.

PINK certainly stands out against a blue sky.

I just picked up a Fosa Lift for a friend of mine. He got a red one, white stripes, beautiful. I saw an orange one, with black and white stripes in there, it is totally gorgeous.... Im just saying, if you wanted one, that one is NICE!

Picked up my New Fosa Lift, from Warren who is awsome to go pick it up for me. It has two carbon wing joiners that are tight, the finish of the plane is really good and the fit of the wing to fuse is super tight, can't wait to ring this one out.Thanks also to Bob at Soaring USA for the plane. Ian
