Looks more scale than the coming GWS one.

Also it is said that it need NO GLUE to assemble. Everything is screwed in place.

very nice looking model and it seems to fly pretty good too...smaller w/s by about 6" than the gws38 but does seem more refined...someone needs to get one and report on it...

Interest in group order?

I am also wondering where to get it in US. However if there are enough interests I can organize to order directly from Taiwan.

Keeping my fingers crossed.

Looks like a must have to me as well. If they'd only made it with counter rotating three bladed props!!!

*chuckle* just kidding. I've wanted a P-38 for some time but just can't cough up ~$150.00 for one of the nicer ones.

I'll definitely be deciding between this bird and the GWS version once both are released to the market. Probably will stick with brushed 2S LiPo's as the cost of going brushless also puts it out of my price range.

*edit* Missed the offer of a group buy. I'd be interested pending knowing the cost.
