+1

Scott IS Mr Durafly in my book,he not only look after us boys and girls while at work coming up with all these great models for us and making sure they look/fly so damn well,then he takes a holiday and still keep us a breast of whats going on.

I'm glad she is about ready as that money has been burning a big hole in my pocket,now to make some room in my hanger for her.

Thanks again Scott.

Nothing to worry about, yes, I am back in the UK but still very much hands-on as far as Durafly is concerned, it is just my other duties that have changed.

Glad to hear that your still very much involved with the Durafly range Scott,i'd hate to see you as Mr Durafly for you to not take part in there creation anymore.

No matter what your doing i'm sure you have our best interests at hart.

Scott,

can you tell us if the Sea Vixen comes with the same retract mechanisms as the Vampire or are they different?

I am quite happy with the Vampire retracts. After 130 flights, they still work like clock work.....

Not all changes are for the better, and I'm starting to get that feeling about Mr Durafly, while Stuart and Ross are going a great job with the hobbyking daily, it's still not the same lol.

One of the delays was because of improvements to the retracts, particularly the nose-wheel retract, so same but improved.

Would be nice if all the warehouse got the sea vixen at the same time for a worldwide release. That would take the pressure off hong kong.
