They are going to be beat to the market by another company that is just about ready to release one...prototypes flight tested and all already, not just a CAD drawing like the above...

Not Kyosho...they have their Vision swing wing sport job, this will be a foamy EDF RTF deal. I don't think the company wants the info released yet, but soon, I'm sure they will say something.
No offense to Skyrc, it's just that I know the other one comes from a factory with a well-proven track record, and they have actually flown theirs, and I'd put money on the fact that theirs comes out first...unless skyrc is much further along than just a CAD drawing of the full scale plane.

It looks good! Except for the exposed esc's hangin out. I hope either or is a little more scale than most of these companies come out with. Interesting though! Will either of these be retract ready? And what are the sizes????? Very important! Fans size, wing size, etc... A twin 70mm would be great. A twin 90mm even better.

Well...I owe a big apology to SkyRC. I am sorry. And there is too much negativity already in these forums, whenever somebody puts out a new product, there are people who always shoot it down. I just did that, and I am sorry.

Please tell us more about your F-14, it looks great.

Lavochkin, specs are in the top picture, and since it says optional air retracts, I'd guess it's retract ready. For the OTHER F-14, well, it's not right for me to talk about it in SkyRC's thread, when it is ready, that company will make their announcements.
In the meanwhile, well done, Skyrc!

Been looking at X-flight's swing-wing '14. Appears I need to hold off.

Thanks for accepting my apology.

Tell us more about the retracts! Any idea of when the plane will be ready?

looks very nice and promising...with the stated specs, my guess would be 64-70mm fans...
