Why does it seem like Horizon is off their "A" game lately? Unless what you're hyping is much more extraordinary than the hype itself, disappointment is the only possible result. Mix in a little recent history and we know that "Unique" equals "Disappointment." What a shame for a company to have fallen to that extent.

When a product is good enough hype is unnecessary, or even counterproductive. Why is/was there no hype for the Champ? BECAUSE IT DIDN'T NEED IT!

Advice: put your cash in the products and let those better products sell themselves.

Name me one product which was launched with excessive hype which DIDN'T turn out to be a disappointment.

Hyper Taxi! Fragile, but definitively fun to fly! You just have to avoid crashes...

*Who are you?

My name is George.



*Why are you here?

I'm unemployed and I live with my parents.



*What do you think we are doing?

You're considering hiring me for your latex salesman.



*What are you doing this weekend?

Oh, I just, uh, leased a house, out in the Hamptons, and I've got to get out there this weekend and sign the papers.

When it asked if I was unique, I hit "no" and a video came on telling me that I'm unique followed by asking me once again if I'm unique. Not very brilliant IMO

maybe horizon is actually going to utilize QQ's talents and have him design a nice balsa 3d airplane.

I've been begging for a .25-.50 size Beast, but I know it's not going to be that. They are displaying it on Blade, H9, PKZ, and E-Flite. I has to be something general and not specific to any of the brands. Maybe a form of AS3X for the larger stuff?

I hope HH releases a park flyer sized beast - same category sizes as current CZ Yak, or smaller size like that of there park flyer warbird series.

They'd be dumb not to

would sell like hot cakes, and would sell even better if a stabilization system was incorporated that could be turned on and off.

That's what I was thinking.

The same thing is showing on bladehelis.com, so I don't think it's just plane related.

I'm gonna guess its a range of large Multi Rotor BNF/PNF, just a guess

I dont think anyone can say they have blown the budget on Hype.....its quite a basic website/ad campaign


any prizes for guessing correctly.

Really don't think e-flite would be doing this. Spektrum just released the new dx18. Frequency hopping etc.

Maybe something to do with FPV?

I'm betting on a 3 Axis gyro that's plug and play.
