Do you have a potential date when it will be available?

I wasn't suprised. I mean that there's girls in the glider championships, the giant scale warbirds, indoor free flight, and indoor F3P Championships. I don't think my topic has gotten out of hand. I just call it conrtoled cahos

Back to the dihedral on the Citabria. It's not going to be as fast as the Micro Cessna,or be as steady in the wind. Your thoughts.

I'm 27 and I buy all my planes with the money the power/phone/cable companies think they're going to get.

I hope the Citabria is way slower than the Cessna. It'll make it easier to fly around the parking lot at my apartment. Not too worried about the wind, as I tend to avoid going out if it gets too windy, anyway.

I'd go with the Micro Cessna if you also want to fly it in front of your house. The Citabria probelly will be only able to fly indoors.

No steerable tailwheel or other improvements that I can see, but well worth the price IMO. I put some bad video up here of mine and a couple of Cessnas.
Checked out your video of the Citabria...I like that it's a little bigger and flys slower than the Cessna. I think I'm gonna order one when they become available.

Correct, but the Kyosho Micro Citabria, which is the same aircraft, has been out for a while now...

IMO it is as good and possibly better than the Cessna.
