Well, let's have a look at the facts:

>6000 views from 20. November to 31. December, i.e. approx. 150 views/day.
Approx. 1000 views from 01. January to 20. January equals approx. 50 views/day.

If I see an interesting model or a real bargain, I consider buying it in order to build it at a later date. Currently I have about 20 kits stored away.

Did you ever fly one of the Sonic Liners, and if so, what do you think of it? ( PS: I did NOT get the impression that you are campaigning against the model)

I am very pleased with mine - It flies nice and stable, is quite immune to wind, and goes pretty fast. With counter rotating props, and decent brushless thrust, it's even non-eventful to launch

I have not flown a Sonic Liner yet. When I bought my kit, I was considering to modify it for Indoor flying - as I have done with the Twin-Jet, the Robbe Concorde and the FunJet.

Why mod it? According to an earlier phase of your campaign, the stock configuration lacked nothing.

You may want to read my post again. I was talking about modifications for Indoor flying, something the original model was not designed for.

I did miss that... and I think that's a great idea. I think I remember your indoor Funjet.

If you do modify your Sonic Liner to fly indoors, it will clearly have to be for your own amusement since nobody cares about the model.

Found anyone to produce this kit again?

I don't think there's any malice associated with Jurgen's posts; his opinions are interesting, they're just not always right.

Nothing wrong with having different opinions, however it gets tricky when someone does not want to accept hard facts.

Those must be some modifications if the intent is to fly indoors,...unless the indoor venue is a blimp hangar or enclosed stadium.
