Feefo - I have got the prodij hm airframe. I have heard a lot of good things abotu it from a friend, but it is a typical aeromod build.

I think the price is worth it really though as it does ooze aeromod toughness as well. Some of the 60 inch stuff is pretty lightly built. I had a shooting star (aka nemesis) and the fuse was a bit of a one roll of a light class around a bog roll type affair. Flew well and was fast though.

Haven't you finished it yet then Tom?

I have read the few threads on it, and seen a few posts in non related threads which drew me to it in the 1st place. Build looks.....tight, and the servo tray looks awkward. Only thing I'm not over keen on is the 2 piece wing version. Mike's seems fine tho, and solid from his reports Which is what I like.

Seems it's going to be easier to get than a D60 too, which was top of my list but prices are through the roof and I'm not sure I'm willing to pay what they are (although all I've heard is £500+ and a long wait)

I haven't even started it mate. Mine is the one piece wing version, which is the standard one I guess. Yes build tight and awkward. I think it will outlast most moulded models though.

Yeah the d60 is certainly a nice model. They are really quick.

Seems to me that 3 questions are being answered in these posts:
- best 60" racer
- best 60" DS model
- best 60" all rounder

It might help if the original poster provided more detail about what he's looking for.

For me I won't compete and I probably won't find a proper place to DS over here(my 55" turbine racer takes care of the speed part). I would fly front side aerobatics. I probably won't need the hottest 60" racer either but I like evolution and I rather pay my $$ to guys who are worth it and not to the HK crooks.

You probably want a cross tail with a rudder then. If such a thing exists other than the sunbird.

If you really like the best ~60" Allrounder try a Focus Extreme from Aerosport Becker .

ProdiJ HM, I rate mine highly, generally I wouldn't keep a 60" - but this one is very nice indeed.

Very tough, (buried it twice) very fast, very nimble but also very smooth and harmonised.

Great little model, mine is two piece - just to make it easier for travel.

No, I know only 3 that made it to NA,
perhaps the Manufacturer sells enough in Europe.

Hi Ian
