It does build to a beautiful airplane! Definitely not your typical ARF. I waited for over a year for the first release to arrive. I was planning on mine being nitro powered, we'll see. I would hate to have an engine go dead on her.

Plane envy ! We have a full scale Baron. Nice twin but flying in the teens, it's cold and you can't get above weather. Boss just bought a Piper Meridian Nice pressurized turbo prop.

Would love to get Aerodyne Baron but my wallet already has a hole burning through it. The C310 will have to do for now.

Hey guys.....I hope you all are getting ready for a great holiday....

Just wanted to pass along that I believe the manufacturer of the NP B60 is A-RC Model......though the B-60 isn't listed on their site, I have their FA-18 and the packaging and instructions between the two are identical...font...layout..colors etc. The FA-18 is a nice plane and I am sure both the A-RC and FLYFLY are as well...

Well, the wife surprised me at Xmas this year....I had told her I really wanted the B60 from NP, but right when she looked, they sold out....or so she said. Pretty sneaky...she told me she couldn't get the B60 in any format as they were all sold out...so I kept watch.

Anyhow, she must have gotten one from NP early because there it was Xmas morning.

Will have pictures up in a while.

Ok, I'm jealous.
Wonder if NP will ever get these back in stock...

Tony (NP) indicated that B60's are due in shortly after Christmas. They could be sitting in a container ship offshore still waiting for dock space...is that strike still slowing down the SCal Ports?

to be honest you should buy 2 arfs. the price dif is worth it. I got two kits and it cost way more to put together. However I do have better electronics!! so its up to you to decide if that what you want.
