will wait a little bit to see when this model will arrive at the WA USA warehouse, or if I can't resist, will order from the Int'l warehouse.

Perhaps when it hits the German warehouse, if the price doesn't balloon too much.
The semi transparent cockpit doesn't look really convincing for FPV for me...

I hope they offer this as a kit. In my opinion, it's much easier to build an FPV model "from the ground up" rather than adding video gear to a PNP airplane. Especially since the fuselage halves appear to already be joined.

I am not impressed. After my experience with the MK 1, I would like to see a kit form without the hardware.
A larger wing span? What ? 100mm, 4 inches = 2 inches on each wing. Big deal..
FPV suitable? Where would you put the FPV gear such as the OSD? Not in the belly as there are the screws that hold on the wings in the way.
The hinges on the control surfaces are an improvement, but that is from a lesson learnt the hard way, as I have had the original foam hinge break, as I feel sure others have.
No I will not be getting one, as I already have a MK 1 with the mods. Also I have 4 other similar models. 3 EZ*s, one that is my FPV, and a Rookie.
