Silverlit news from toy fair in Nürnberg

Two news from the actual toy fair in nürnberg-germany (I just found in a german micro rtf forum) :

1.) silverlit anounces a 3-channel plane in the xtwin format to come.

2,) the picco Zs will come with an IR-combat function, allowing to shoot down a second heli, which then turns/tumbles and goes down if hit.

for me the 3-chanel plane please - a small dream will 'come true....

Air Dasher aka Air Acrobat.
I have 2 on pre-order, delivery expected in early may.
I tried to get information on the 3rd channel, is it:
a) up-down on right stick?
b) button activated on Tx?
c) does it kick in at full throttle?

a) is good, b) is okay, c) is bad.
Sadly the dealer is in the dark as much as we.

Was is shown in Nürnberg?
Did any of the German forum goers get a chance to see the transmitter?

No mention on the PalmZ living room flyer?

Pouncer I wrote all I know No pics no nothing. And I have posted another thread in the german forum to get all info avaliable from the guy who has visited the fair. If I know more I will post. I am so "HOT" on a three channel xtwin, you wont believe


EDIT (later): ok its (or seems to be) the Air dasher (red plane, looks like a jet with gear), the question with the Tx layout is still open. But on vids one can see it fast - making controlled loopings, meaning that there should be something elevatorlike. Therfore its not completely news, but as it was announced in germany I WILL BE ABLE TO GET THIS THING - AND THIS MAKES MY DAY - . Shurely a nice platform for lotttttttssss new selfbuilds

You Germans are so fortunate to have Silverlit on your side of the pond
At least AirHogs might bring it here to the US next year .
Cheers! Jim

Sounds like an ideal situation for barter. ;-)
I will gladly ship you an AA jet and a single-wing
if you'll ship me an air-dasher!

Phewww - no success, lots of searches everywhere. I found no source for it. It seems to be "unknown" up to now. Patience is the goal.

Guys there is a bit I can tell you, as you probably guessed it will be avalable in avalable in three bands like the x-twins, and it turns like the x-twin, but it has an elevator control.

A few other things I can tell you is the Palm-z is going to be big this summer in the UK.

Is anybody certain of which planes that WILL make it to the US? Will all these be introduced here? It seems that some are... some arent. I particularly hope the palmz lrf does.
