Nice plane, first time I see one !
Single 70mm or twin 50mm EDF, now that is the question ?

Now I can cry about my Durafly Mirage 2000

I hope it's a single 70mm and that Hobby King also sells an ARF version like the Vampire.

Only Scott can enlighten us at this point....

Single 70mm - 4s....frankly....I don't understand the other factories obsessing with 50mm and 64mm fans....we are not interested in either, some like them.....we don't generally (Stinger excepted).

Great News!

Thanks for letting us know Scott.

Now if HK actually also sold an ARF with servos and retracts but no EDF and ESC....

Fantastic! With my Hunter, Hawk, Vampire, Vulcan, Lightning and this I will soon have a squadron of UK jets! Now if only HK would employ some French, Swedish, Russian etc speaking design staff just think of the models we would see !!

Well I'm just stunned, I never thought they would make this in a million years. One of my top 5 planes of all time.

You know I was actually just thinking the other day that now I've just ordered 4 planes from HK they will probably release something super awesome

But not bothered, I'll be getting this as soon as it comes out. Awesome!!! Wonder if the bottom airbrake works.

i guess this will be 1100mm span like the other Durafly planes? Just wondering because it will be a fair bit bulkier than the Vampire of the same span. Maybe they made it smaller in that case?

No, it's 1100mm so it's a nice size, there will be PNF & ARF versions available.

Lol, actually, our French staff said something similar......don't worry, the plan isn't purely for British aircraft, as I have said in earlier posts, when the British aircraft industy hit it's peak, they lead the world for a short period of time, it's a signficant period in aviation history and it had never really been represented in modelling terms....but everybody will get their turn.
