You have my attention, I have ben begging for a Python ARF, I had to scratch build 2

If it fly's as good as it looks there will now be a precision 3D aerobatic Bipe.

Is the 43oz flying weigh with battery?

Where can we get them and when will they be available?

more pictures and flight reports with video!!

Hi Guys

The harriers are really stable and everybody that flew it agrees it is one of the easiest planes to harrier.
The most amazing manouver is the flatspins. It does them really flat and tight.
Hovering like most bipes is easy.
At the moment I have 4% coupling to the belly but this will be less on the production planes as we made some mods to stop the coupling.
Take off run is straight without any rudder input at all. It only runs about 10 foot in no wind.
Every time I fly it I am amazed at how slow she will fly and this makes the landings really easy.
The only thing to watch out for is the plane really slows down on a glide and you have to use power or keep a constant glide slope.

I will post some small video clips tonight if I can the movie will take some time to make.

The flying weight is 43 oz with the 2500 mah batt.

As you mentioned the raven took some time but we always make sure the product is perfect so the wait should be wort while.
At the moment we have a small quantity that will ship in a week to ten days but these are allready spoken for.
The container should be ready to ship in 45 days.
Our biggest problem at the moment is finding the right partner to team up with for the US.
We have a few shops that have ordered some pieces but we will let you guys know where to find them when they arrive in the US.
Untill then we will do a build tread on RCG to keep you all informed

Are wings removable? If so can you show attachment method? It's still small enough to transport as is but removable would be nice for storage etc. Is this the final trim level? Looks really nice.

Price point yet?

Hi Bildo

Yes the wings are removable with CF wing tubes on upper and lower wings.
I am sure you will all like the wing attachment method (we call it Maglock)
I will make some more pictures so you can see this.

Thank you!
