Are we talking (4) EDF's? I cant imagine the difference between the Glider and the EDF version (to include batteries, ESC, wiring) of just 7 oz. Maybe you could clarify the EDF components?

I am still waiting to see pictures of the fuselage parts before I make a decision to buy..........

Wow I wish we had such slopes in Holland :P
Definately looks very sweet, and it seems like it's as easy to throw as a chuck glider

I am interested as well, as stated before YOU NEED TO UPGRADE THE QUALITY OF MATERIAL for the plane. More people would be interested if it was a better material IMO.

-AN

Otherwise, looks good.

How about molded EPP like Ele-Bee or molded EPS foam?

I don't LOL could u puh-lease explain... I've re-read the whole thread

Actually, I don't get it why it should be a different type of foam... Many people glass big planes like these, or you could at least cover it with some oracover or such... Painting does a lot good too...
We always say "the material's not worth the money", but we shouldn't forget production costs and shipping, if I'm right the 120USD includes shipping to the U.S.A...
Also, keep in mind the Robbe BAe-146 did cost 300 euro's, a few years ago... New in box, but that plane was also made of foam... I've never heard people complaining about the material... They've all glassed it.

I downloaded a picture of Ming throwing the plane (see Ming's latest reply) and the plan was called "A-380"... Don't you guys want one that size and that price? Usually you'll pay at least 250-300 USD for that size plane... It's definately a sweet alternative to the more expensive big airliner models.

Kindest regards,
Dave

Please note that is limited quota for US$150 to get two bete Airliner, this very special offer is for test pilot only, I didn't make any profit on it.
I guess just the shipping to 2 Airliner to US or Europe may cost me around HK$1,000 (US$128), that mean the plane is almost free.
