Folks, we know the plane is real and has been built (and flown) by a reputable manufacturer. Rather than derail a promising project with endless speculation, why don't we all step back and let the distributors speak for themselves? If there's a lot invested in the project he/they will want it to succeed and will update us appropriately when able and prepared to do so.

I counsel patience, grasshoppers.

Really

Jack,

there is no official announcement to that, just what I heard and exactly because of the junk you just posted is why I beleived they kept that out. KEEP THIS THREAD about the Victory Jet. Nobody has made any claims or promises, nobody has been able to make a deposit (I know I tried) so there is no reason for this on the Victory Jet Thread.

The second part; more guessing.

We all saw the inventory of completed hulls and wings. Just about that time, Jetfolks posted that he got a prototype and wanted some changes. How could that happen? The batch was already completed and ready to ship. I think that is when the chit hit the fan, too late for changes, and there was a ripple in the force. (Starwars) There was no way that the packing material that was turned into jets was going to be converted back to packing material and new jets made. LOL

Those planes are going to show up somewhere....but where?

I am willing to bet that right now Tim Wan is fuming, someone might be stuck with 60 plus planes. When he calms down he will put his thinking cap back on and figure out how to save this project.

Tim

Actually Al, Tim is I would say is a little of a perfectionist, He likes his products to perform and takes input seriously. A perfect example of his fan, landing gear and T-33 which all have had changes becuase of input from user. Of course, that was all in the Foam section of the Electric Ducted Fan forums.

I think his statement was towards Jim and the new management. It's kind of confusing as who imports these model or who makes them. Suggestion of guys using different names. If we are going to play by the rules lets keep real that's no good and confusing the common consumer.


I for one love the new Victory model and can only hope Scott or someone as reputable as him is importing them. Looking forward to ringing that thing out. Lets see how strong it is!!!


Now this is for the manufacture/ importer or whomever it may concern. Can we have a exact date of when we can purchase and receive them? I will pay for shipping straight from china. I've shipped way bigger boxes. It's expensive but I really want one.

I say we all relax and see where this goes. this isn't dead yet. not by a long shot. the only one who can say it's dead it Tim or Jetfolks, whoever that may be. till then, lets just drool over the posted pics and see what we get. anything else is merely congecture and heresay. so many threads go this way and I'd hate to see this one do the same. of course, if it's Curtis, or Gene, or whoever, it may cause a problem, but is it's Scott or someone else completely different, we may not be completely wasted here. I say patience my young padawan.

Not to be too blunt; but have you ever even personally met the guys you mention?
Curtis, Gene, Jim Drew, Scott Bahde?
One has to be careful with characterization based solely through online personae.
That said.....Scott is a really class act. (Well....Al Gutkin too! )

OK, so I was not too excited about just blue for a Single engine one, but the red on is growing on me.

what does it matter if I've met them? I've spoken to the latter two and they seem like nice guys. I personally haven't had any dealings with Gene and don't personally have a problem with him. although I know those that do. I have had a personal dealing with Curtis and didn't like what I got, or didn't get. my point was/is basically who cares who it is. for me it does not matter as long as it isn't Curtis. other than that, I couldn't give two ^%$# who it is as long as we all get what we wanted in the first place. not sure why you chose to single my post out, when I actually wasn't saying anything negative. simply that we should wait and see who, what, when, where, why. all of the above.
