Are the spec's the same for I & 2?
What's the difference between the two?

Thanks

This is what is listed for the version 2 from the SBRC website:

# NEW Improved scale
# NEW Fuselage even tougher than before (pre shaped EPP- no sanding required)
# NEW more efficient and faster wing section (EPP and foam composite wing)
# NEW sheer web in the wing allowing extreme performance (far stronger and lighter than a spar)
#NEW thicker tougher pre cut clear plastic canopy


I'm not sure about the second one. The version 1 has a pre-shaped EPP fuse that doesn't need any sanding also.

Also your new reduced price. Thanks

I can NOT believe this kit has not sold!! Considering what it cost to ship it to the USA it's a no brainer buy! Had I not just purchased 2 I would be all over this kit.

With a modest Mega 16/15/4 the Komet has decent speed. It slows down and fly like a trainer! Heck it's made out of EPP so it could very well be used as a trainer.

FYI I do not know the seller but I do know a good buy when I see one!

Thanks for your support! I think people are hesitating because it's the V1 kit. Not a big deal IMHO between the two versions. I have another V1 that I'm still flying and it's shown no signs of giving up.
