Here's a bunch of photos of the New Supreme Hobbies 1100mm span Airbus A320 available from PW-RC.com. Two recommendations: Cut foam ailerons and install pin type hinges. Use a 3S 2200 battery for best flight times and better flying qualities. Great model with cool landing gear, 50mm 11 blade EDF fans and scale appearance. A keeper!

Here's the dedicated thread on the A320:

Here's shots on the new Durafly 1100mm P-51D Old Crow. The same as the Durafly 1100mm P-51D Ferocious Frankie, just a new color scheme.

This nice looking and great flying Mustang is yet another great addition to the Durafly 1100mm Warbird Series.

All the best,
Tony

This is the ARF version of the Blitz RC Works 50mm Viper Jet available from Banana Hobby:

http://www.bananahobby.com/3-ch-blit...f-jet-rtf.html

Features:
•3 Channel Full Function Radio Controlled (Aileron, Elevator &Throttle)
•BS2X 2 Axis Gyro Stabilization
•Detachable Nose
•Detachable Motor Hatch Secured with Rare Earth Magnets
•Pushrod Fairings
•Reinforced Winglets
•Winglets Provides Steady Flight Characteristics
•Factory Applied Decals
•EPO Foam

I have one flight on the Viper Jet using the 3S 25C 850 mAh battery and gyro not used....didn't need it. One ounce of weight was added to achieve CG but a 1000mAh battery would be the better option. Super stable flyer! I used 50% expo in the ailerons and elevator and it flew like a larger jet...even in a 10 mph crosswind. Inverted flight was rock solid with no bad tendencies.

This is a great flyer and a nice addition to the 50mm jet series.
