GWS E-Starter Release Date E-mail

The below is the response I recieved regarding a release date for the GWS E-Starter, for those interested:

We expect the E-starter will be released in Jan of 2003. However, it will take about 5 to 6 weeks to be in the market after shipment released.

Please kindly contact our distributor in USA as below for their dealer list by then:

Just noticed that GWS moved the E-Starter to "Available" status on their home page.

Maybe we will see this one in a month or so in the States. Hoping it will be a good aileron trainer.

Waiting...waiting...waiting...

Noticed Horizon Hobby has removed the "NYA" from the E-Starter. Shows out of stock still. Maybe they are in the hobby shops? Anyone seen one yet?

Hmmmm...maybe they're on the same boat from Taiwan as the A-10s.

In the pics I see that the wing is turned down at the ends. What does this do for the performance. Has anyone seen one of these fly yet?

On the web site, it says 3 servo's. Is this a aileron plane?

I think I would ditch the wing struts and just put a carbon fiber tube in the wing.

Nice looking plane though, appears fairly sleek.

PDS,
Those tips are sometimes referred to as Hoerner tips. In the full scale world they are common sights on short take-off and landing (bush type) planes. As I understand it they do a couple of things... they help to reduce the drag associated with a blunt tip and increase the effeciency of the wing area near the tip by promoting laminar flow over the tip. They are often seen in conjunction with vortex generators, stall fences, and drooped outboard leading edges.

On the E-starter however I think their main goal was to make it look cool.

Guys, I'm disappointed. David posts a message signed by "Yolanda Wang" and no one comments?

I like the floats, but egads, yellow!? that coupled with the orange prop brings to mind stilts, tiny cars and giant tents if you know what I mean.

why, between the 1st and 2nd picture is the undercarriage different. In the 1st pic its plastic or something (looks nice, scale like) and in the 2nd pic it's just wire (makes it actually look like a model....nothing wrong with that normally, but for something that looks real. scale like, it's annoying).

Dean,

Yes this is an aileron plane. Hoping it will be the trainer we have all longed for.

John2003,

The difference in the landing gear is just some fairings made of foam. Can be put on or not. The green plane is from the GWS web site where they show several E-Starters with "custom" paint jobs.

PDS,

There is a flight report on the Parkflyer forum from a gentlemen in the I believe the Philippines that flew one.

Just got off the phone with horizon hobby. The person I talked to sent someone out to the receiving docks. The e-starter has landed and is on the docks. She said they will be testing the e-starter for about a week and then they will be made available. Think I will order another GWS 400C for it. Can't wait. Now, if only it was warmer.
