She is a beauty and theres no taking that away from her but i doubt the LG would hold up for to long on grass.

Right all we need to know now is when will it be out and who will be carry them.

Did it say on face book who the company was? oh and thanks for sharing the photos twiztidbowler.

Just realised it was freewing Doh.

Look at the size of the table.Hard to tell of course,but it looks like a fairly large model to me.Tail looks to be a bit off.Vertical is too tall.but I might be able to over look it.They are still trying to design out the torque affect of the three blade prop.I wish they wouldn't,I will compensate just like the pilots of the full scale birds had to do with the rudder.Can't tell from the pics,but I hope it has retracts.

The Dauntless had a tall tail and looks good to me

Yes,it may be camera angle.Have to wait and see.But Banana carries a larger Corsair with the large tail affliction.I'm thinking if the dive brakes are foam,some carbon strips might be in order to prevent warpage.But that's just simple modding in my opinion,and not a deal breaker.So far overall,from what I see,looks pretty good.
