Flyzone Albatros DV


I swiped this image from Fast Al's Toledo coverage. I have been dying to talk about this plane. I have posted pix of a number that I have built and soon anyone can have one! It weighs 28.7 grams with battery and is a ball to fly. Slightly slower than the Playmate with a touch better handling. Video at Model Airplane News. Ignore there quoted weight.

Dave,
Very nice looking. I think you should be proud of your creation. Nice to see it make it into a production version.

Great job on your AlbD5! I assume it'll be an ARF kit, right? Any price set yet?

I'm sending you a PM soon (re other stuff.)

Looks like it is up on the Flyzone website but I do not think it is for sale yet. Guy on the youtube video said $79.99 street price. D Johnson, you should post this in the MICRO RTF section as well. I'm sure those guys would be all over it!

I saw it fly at ETOC, It is a winner in my book. It is a must have for indoor season. What a neat looker, I don't like WWI planes all that much, but, this or there is always a but, I love it. I am really impressed with it. I got to have one.

Dave, this is a winner.
