New Durafly DH-88 Comet from Hobby King

This was posted over in the warbirds thread and I think that it my be more appropriate for it to be posted here. This is a beautiful plane and I for one can't wait for this little sweetheart to come out. I will go further in debt for this one. So with out further delay, here is a video Sneak Peak from Hobby King.

Enjoy!

I bet 4s would make it the racer it was designed to be.

So I wonder how those retracts will hold up, is anyone having issues with the retracts on the durafly warbird line? maybe these will be improved?

It really does not lack speed, 4s would make it pretty silly to be honest.

We will see once it is in hand. I am not a big fan of power system upgrades unless it is necessary. It would have to be a turd to get me to upgrade. Although, it would be fun to see this plane give the funjet a run for its money. Not that I am going to do it, but it would be fun to see.

Silly power/speed is a good thing to have at the ready like the sandman said... I got my finger on the trigger, ready to take this one out as soon as it's available.
