Cumming, Georgia 8/01/05
Atlantahobby.com the nations leader in providing innovative Electric Flight products to consumers around the world announced today that it would import and distribute the exciting new Precision Aerobatics Katana Mini.

About the Katana Mini
Two-piece removable wings with a CF wing tube make the Katana Mini a compact, durable, and easily transportable package. Cliff Whitney Owner of Atlantahobby.com stated “The Katana Mini is an exciting flying machine and one of the highest quality aircraft we have seen in a long time. When we saw the quality construction and the extensive use of Carbon fiber throughout the aircraft we knew it was a winner.” Its clever design is capable of any maneuver you ask of it but gentle enough for relaxing flying around in the neighborhood. The Katana Mini uses Advanced laser cut materials and the highest quality building technology for a superior product. Some of the features include 4 different color schemes,
Fiberglass pre-painted cowl & wheel pants,
Tinted canopy,
Carbon fiber reinforcements (wing spar, fuselage, leading edge),
Carbon fiber control horns,
Carbon fiber pushrods,
Carbon fiber wing tube,
Carbon fiber wing socket/sleeve (inside the wings & fuselage),
Carbon fiber anti-rotation wing pins,
Carbon fiber landing gear,
Carbon fiber reinforcement ribs in the fuselage, All of this adds up to provide a structure that is extremely lightweight and strong.

With a large commitment to volume and a close working relationship with Precision Aerobatics in Australia Atlantahobby.com is now able to bring this aircraft to market. Mr. Whitney went on to state “You will not find an aircraft for under $200 with the features and quality build like the Katana Mini has. We plan to offer the plane at the incredible price of $119.99 and will carry a large range of parts and combos to make it easy for pilots to fly the best!

Thanks for the note papasmurf,
Our aircraft are in production now and I will release the upgrades soon but Shaun and the team at Precision Aerobatics is only concerned about a quality product (as you have seen) and has been great to work with over the last few months paying attn to our upgrade needs and the request of current and prospective pilots.

As to the dealers, yes we are happy to be working with many of the quaity companys that have been bringing in limited #s of the Katana Mini. We are welcome to hear from any retailer who wishes to carry this plane or for that matter any of our products. They just need to contact us and we will get them the necessary details to them in short order.

Hope this helps and that you are enjoying your new Mini Katana.

Good Winds

Ship is in Port!

Good news,
The ship (named the Wilson) docked on 9/5 a few days ahead of our projected schedule and if all goes well customs should clear the shipment today or tomorrow. We started the clearance process while the ship was still well out at sea as we do with all of our containers so I am still on track to have the full container in Atlanta around the 13-15th. We will start filling the large bakorders to consumers and dealers then. This shipment will also have a good suply of spare parts available.

I am flying my KM a lot and have just been having a blast with it each time I take it out.

Good Winds
