A couple questions on the Minivec:
- What is the estimated ready-to-fly all up weight?
- Will these be available in a flaperon model, or only as ailerons/flaps?

Hi Surf - weights I'll check but it could be ordered as a flaperon easily.

Cheers,

Sweet! Thank you James. I hope this model meets success and that you sell a lot of 'em

It's so amazing to me that there are 3 really nice molded, dedicated aerobatic slopers (Wasabi, Vector III, and Minivec) on the market now... at various price points and sizes... just a few years ago, there were none!!

I don't know Steve, you abandon us on the forum then you come back, without so much as a "by your leave" and start parting a voltij from a vector!

You're still on probation my lad!!

Seems odd to me too that they would change distributors. Skip and crew seemed to be doing a really good job taking care of customers. I have the Firebird and Typhoon. Both great planes and the folks at SSM really took good care of me and had excellent communication and follow up during the whole process. Maybe Bob promised them more money.
