Besides, much of the world can't fly in the winter, so it doesn't make sense to crank out airplanes in a time where sales may be the lowest.
I think FMS is a much smaller company that many of you believe to be.
I should've said it might be at RC Castle before Christmas, with an emphasis on the word "might"
The desert scheme is about to hit the shelves right now...
