Dear Rudi

Yes, I lost two engine during the fisrt flight, it will not happen anymore because I change to use a rubber band to hold the engine supporting just like the Easy Pro canopy.
It pre-order on our website: http://www.windrider.com.hk/products/product.cfm?id=9
Equipment I am using is:
1. 4 channels TX
2. 4 channels RX
3. Standard AA size RX battery X 4
4. 5 Mini size Futaba #3107 servos
5. 1 Y-cord servo cable
6. 4 extendtion servo cables
7. Some fiber tape

I spend only 1.5 hours to build this ship.

I don't know how samller you mean...
1 meter may be too heavy to carry 4 duct of the wingload.
2 meter is too large for the machine.
1.5 meter should be OK to power by GWS 50 EDF I think.
Something I can be sure is 1.8 meter is too big after I check up the shipping cost.

Ming,

Are those holes in the top of the fuse for batteries? It would be nice to allow for alternate battery locations (inside the fuselage) to set the CG for each builders different setup.

Hi Ming...the Airbus looks like a great flyer! (I forgot how HUGE this plane is!)
How about an update on how the manufacturing is going (like, have you made more than one successfully from the mold set?) , and perhaps an ETA on deliveries for the testers?

Yes, those holes can fit any size of RX, battery or even camera as you like.
Everyone have difference setup.
The correct C.G is located as the orange spot as attached picture.

Thank you very much for your nice decal A-380 picture.
In Hong Kong, we always have good wind, no need to fly a power soarer.

The wingspan of this Airliner is 1.8 meter.
Yes, I still have few set but all of them have to keep for more testing.
I have to send modified shot to test pilot not only the 1 st test shot.
ETA is around 20th of Dec...sorry for the late ship again.

Thats EXCELLENT news Ming, and thank you for the speedy reply.

I'd like to see some posts on possible motor options for these beautiful jets. I personally will try the first one on 2 pusher motors, in order to keep my costs down. Perhaps 2 speed400's DD? I also have 2 Lil Screamers brushless motors that would do the trick nicely. I'd like to keep the prop size small so the plane stays scale looking in flight.

GWS 55 EDF can fit the Airliner duct.
I think you need 4 EDF to power this ship.
