Hi, I have one I bought at Jetpower it is built but not yet flown because of the weather. I have to say it is of very good quality (think Multiplex! I heard they come out of the same factory but not sure if that is correct) and well thought out, foam is epo (elapor?) and quite smooth and the build is very straightforward and quick, I saw them fly at the show and they looked good and went very well in the air,Tomahawk sold loads of them over the weekend at JP Hope to get it in the air sometime soon weather and work permitting,Cheers

Hi Alex, had two flights today it is superb,better than my Habu and that's saying something! it was gunned at 220kmph but was rock steady and felt comfortable from the start and will do any jet manouvre you can think of,great vertical also will knife edge out of sight on a smidge of rudder. highly recommended.

I saw them at JP. Couldn't believe the punters were being ripped for 140 for this foam 70mm EDF airframe. Crazy. Would be a fair price for a 90mm kit but not 70mm.

Anyone in the states carry this plane? alshobbies.com wants to charge over 100 pounds to ship the airframe version. Last I checked that's almost $200 in shipping charges, no thanks.

Try www.tomahawk-design.de they will tell you if there is a US dealer or if you can buy from them at a better price. Whats wrong with the sapac one ? its the same size and you can fit retracts/flaps etc

This one is a lightweight foamy where the Sapac one is composite. I already have a Sapac composite L-39 and I'm looking for a fast handlaunched foamy. But not this one at the prices for shipping to the states.

If you click "buy it now" you can calculate the shipping to the states, $24.95. I'm going to have to think about this one, it's alot of money for a foam airframe but it sure does look nice.

Hi All
I have just received this kit after looking for an alternative to the habu Reasons for this one is that it will take the equipment I already have and take bigger batteries than the habu 4 cell 4300mah no problem
The quality of the components so far is excellent and far far better than the lander foamys the fit of the foam and wood bits is first class and very well designed/thourght out.

Looks like this could have been the foamy to knock off about all the sport jet type foamy mfg's to date. Fret not though, it'll get cloned in no time!
