How'd they sneak this one out without all the hullaballoo? My only beef with this one is that its $250 for a fixed gear plane that you have to lay down again for the electric retracts. $300 plus is steep for a ~40" foam warbird when I can get a bigger one from FMS for less or a similiar one from HL for less.

This one looks great but will go on the "wait and see" list.

Regards,
Alan

Not to mention its another D model. Looks like if I get one I will have some foam carving in my future.

Looks nice, but I also prefer a razor back. I will still probably get one though.

I to am shocked that they pulled this off without any leaks or hints. Kudos ParkZone team!!

Although I am thrilled with this new release I am a bit surprised that they followed the rest of the pack by making it a Bubble Top like everyone else. If they had made it a Razorback version they would not only have stood out from the rest of the pack but also had (as far as I know) the ONLY foam version Razorback out there....not counting the discontinued E-Flite P-47, of which I still have an unopened NIB version up in my attic which I think now that I will keep unopened just for posterity sake and to keep as a collectors item.

All in all though as a huge Jug fan I am still very happy to see this release. Ya get the best of both worlds (IMHO)...another Z-Foam (I love that stuff!) bird plus one that is actually designed to take retracts!! WooHoo!!

This looks VERY nice, and I too want to thank Dave and the crew at HH for listening to us and putting in an EASY option for flaps AND RETRACTS on this one! Using the new AR600 was great to, so we don't have to yank out the Rx and put in a 6 channel to use retracts and flaps, like in past if you decided to mod up your 109, etc. That's a big bonus. Easy and yet expandable.

Looks like a good job by HH.

Damn, my wife is NEVER gonna talk to me again!

You are right here! A NIB P-47 Razorback is some treasure nowadays! Take good care of it...but if you ever consider selling please drop me a PN

cheers

Very nice Parkzone!

Like others I think a razorback would have been better and I can't see how their marketing team can justify the price compared with the FMS and HL versions that are already out, are cheaper, look as good and are made from tough foam also

Razorbacks were also D models a lot, at least the ones that reached the front lines. The -D version usually has an additional number code behind it. D-1 all the way up to D-25 were Razorbacks, Pictures of D-27s I have already show the bubble top!

cheers
