OK, since every single thread I start about a product gets cluttered with:

What's the next one?
What about this one?
Where's XYZ?

Here's a thread for all you guys to bug me in, without cluttering up other threads.

I'll continue to update this post as time goes by to keep things current.

Plans are done.
Parts will be cut this weekend.
Instructions are being worked on.
Pricing is being worked on.

So, the Lucky ACE will be released at NEAT.

I may or may not have it on the web site before NEAT. If I do put it up before NEAT, orders won't ship until after the show, and will be processed in the order received.

Good idea Brian..

..about future products being suggested here...you've already done a great job with the Switchback Senior,now I've heard talk of an upsized ACE...hmmm,I was wondering what other MM product would we like to see offered in a Senior size..?I was thinking a bigger MINIFLASH..!!

It seems that there is a real scarcity of low-wing sport scale flyers in the 44"-50" wing span range, i.e. brushless 480 size for a 3S1P 2100 lipo battery pack. Close in size is your SB Senior (that I already have), but I think that e.g., a 48" Spacewalker, Druine Turbulent or Bowers FlyBaby would be a real hit. What do you think Brian? How about the rest of you?

A 60" C-130 would be nice. With flaps, retracts and operating cargo ramps. Maybe a Super Connie. Hey, as long as I'm dreaming I might as well dream big!

Let's see: a ..30-.40 size P-51, based on the current kit, an ACE150, a ducted fan model (preferably something scale, like the FanTrainer), a 44-50" pattern plane (Flashback150), a couple of indoor sized models, some more "sorta scale" EZ's, and a couple of twins (a B-25 and at least one civil aviation twin). A scale bipe would be fun to have as well. After those, I guess it's whatever else Brian wants to design.

I think that covers my general banter for the night............

Flashback150 ?!?!?! I'd be really, really tempted to get one of those. I love the smaller one. Now, where are those retracts I had laying around?

I would love to see a re-release of the Urban Flyer, even a larger version say about 48" span

Unfortunately, a C-130 and Connie aren't on my list. Honestly, I think it would be a LOT more work than most kits, and sales just wouldn't justify it.

The Urban Flyer probably won't come back in any size.

Now for positives:
Different sized ACE's are in the works
A Flashback 150 or similar larger pattern plane is on the list.
A larger P-51 is on the list
A Ducted Fan model is on the list (Something I started over 10 years ago!)
More EZ's are planned
SwitchBack Jr is under consideration
Low Wing sport flyers are planned. (1 might even be partially built )
