If the registered pilots get to vote for the best new product at seff and they wont get a chance to either fly or buy this new airplane, how do they expect it to win best new product. At least with Mercury Adhesives, they had them there to give out and try. And since it is a prototype, will it be eligible for the best new product voting?

I am sure it will fly awesome with the pilot who is used to it and has it tweaked for maximum precision and 3d flying. I will have a hard time voting on something that I cant get my hands on to try since I am an average flyer. I will withhold voting until I know that a product is great and new. Not slamming the plane at all, just think that the rule needs to be changed in the future.

Zero,
Can you at least let us know what size? Do they take the Torque 2818?

the only trouble is you have to look at it from the manufacturers point of view---yeah i can let every man woman and child play with glue---worse that is going to happen is someone may bet their fingers stuck together.

I cant let everyone fly a 3d capable aircraft! Would it be smart for me to let the newbie with his electric trainer fly my 1 of a kind 3d prototype? Would I be smart to let someone with absolutely no tail dragger experiece fly my 1 of a kind prototype? Would i be smart to let someone buddy box on my prototype? A newbie goes out and smashes it on take off because it quickly gets away from him---what am I left with--a smashed plane---and a no not the best product, because a newbie cant fly it vote.

I hope I'm able to keep the Velox flying long enough til this one gets here. I've been abusing the cr@p out of it. I'll be watching for this and the other releases from Ben and crew.
