E-Flite's New Hurricane Z-Foam Warbird


well guys Surprise Surprise Surprise, the new E-Flite war bird is released and guess what it's a Hurricane http://www.modelflight.com.au/produc...NF-8633-6.html

and it looks like E-Flite is going to look after the larger sized Z-Foam planes as this one is made of Z-Foam, which would mean Parkzone can keep there planes in the lower price bracket and E-Flite will start to offer some larger planes for us in the Z-Foam

it looks to be a very nice offering, coming with flaps installed and retract ready

cheers chuck

Love the split flaps on this one just one day after Dave says they don't have a cost effective way of doing them. Maybe the guys from Parkzone should talk to the E-Flite guys every once in a while.

That was in the ParkZone thread, regarding ParkZone product subject to ParkZone price, value, and brand expectations. This Hurricane is from E-flite and is a higher level of product with a higher level of detail expected (at an expected higher price point).

It's a nice spec and I WANT ONE

Just checked the E-Flite web site and no mention of it yet - wonder who will have it in the US - not BH I hope!

PS Any idea who does the Lancaster in foam? I want the complete Battle of Britain flight

Chuck strikes again !!!

Another bird flying at tree top right under the radar.

Looks nice, a return serve to the FMS / Airfield line.

Guess Windrider might loose some sails to this one too.

Too bad for me its not a zero or dauntless, but looks great, nice work HH

just got in and turned the comp on, went to my local hobby shop site and wham! what a surprise, this bird looks good and at a guess will be the start of many larger Z-foam Warbirds, seeing as it's under the E-Flite banner guess we could even see a Twin motored plane produced and the one i am really waiting for a Z- Foam Beast in this size

cheers chuck
