E-flite Pitts Model 12 15e ARF

Anybody seen this one yet? Seems like E-Flite is coming out with new stuff every other week these days.

http://www.horizonhobby.com/Products...ProdID=EFL2550




Overview
The E-flite® Pitts Model 12 15e ARF is a 3D-capable, sport replica of one of aviation’s hottest aerobatic machines. Designed by veteran, world-class competitor Quique Somenzini, it will give intermediate to expert pilots a thrilling scale aerobatic experience unlike any other. The large wing area and light wing loading of its biplane design offers very forgiving flight characteristics while keeping roll response crisp and precise. E-flite’s Power 15 and Power 25 brushless outrunner motors are excellent power choices, depending on your skill level. Sport aerobatics or stick-bending 3D, the Pitts Model 12 15e will do whatever you ask and will look good doing it.

Its feature-packed design and components offer a level of quality and performance beyond that of any similar models, allowing intermediate pilots to grow their skills rapidly and experienced pilots to enjoy maximum performance with no extra effort. Some of these features include: genuine Hangar 9 UltraCote covering over a lightweight balsa and lightweight plywood frame; a steerable tail wheel; a fiberglass cowl and wheel pants; a bolt-on firewall that accepts the E-flite Power 15 or Power 25 BL Outrunner Motor; and a quick-change battery hatch. With all of these fantastic features, in addition to the level of pre-fabrication that has been completed, modelers will have the ability to fly this incredible biplane with minimal hassle and maximum fun. With the attention to detail, and the amount of work that will be complete when a modeler opens the box, it is no wonder why the E-flite version will be a step above the rest of the competition.

Sorry, just found another thread on this. When I searched for it though it did not come up. Guess this is still that new. In any case, sure does look nice.
