I found this website www.nitromodels.com and they have RTF Foamies UNDER a 100$ its all NiMh and Brushed but wow! these are cheap! really good for some one who is just geting started and already knows how to fly cuz these things look like a avrage flying plane for that avrage RC person heck I might just buy this one http://www.nitroplanes.com/new4acbartfe.html just to keep nice and every time i go to fly my big planes this will be a "time killing airplane" lol cuz when i have a 3D foamie or some thing all set up light i'll fly it at my house and on my avrage 3D foamies or just a Foamie i build, it will last me about....... 20 or.. 35 flights This thing looks like it needs some room to fly. more room then what my yard has lol.

That "ACCIPITER BADIUS" has a slight resemblance to the GWS Formosa!

These have been around for a while,couple years or so. I have read about poor radio quality,but it seems some people at least liked them.There is a thread here somewhere.

this one is 20 bucks cheaper. ive seen one of these up close, and umm their 60 dollars worth of a plane and gear. cheesy radio, cheesy gear, cheesy plastic plane. i think that money could be much better spend on 1 piece of real gear.

Well as an owner of the Accipiter Baddius I can say...that in NO way resembles an Accipiter! The AB is a folding proped powered GLIDER!!! Granted it's not a fantastic airplane, but for the $50 I paid brand new I won't complain. It was one of my first planes a few years back. Flew well for a cheap powered glider. 27mhz TX...bleh. Plastic fuse that can take a beating..I KNOW!

Kinda funny actually...same website has the REAL AB http://www.nitroplanes.com/slopediverrtf.html And you can even see the name on the wing in the pic yet it's called the "slope diver" lol.

After some good flights it met it's demise in my dad's pond due to a radio glitch where it wouldn't come out of the dive portion of a loop. The only thing that got hurt was the ESC (POS anyhow) and could EASILY be retrofit with good electronics for anyone wanting a nice powered glider.

what is that saying - what comes around goes around?

Too bad that GWS who they are copying this plane from has their own original stuff. It would be funny if it were one of the many "bad" guys copying another "bad" guy.

Sad...but not too shocking.

I think saying that is disrespectful and a tad immature.
