Just talked with the Skywalker factory...
He can't get the EPO materials before 2-3 month from now.

Thats why it will be made in EPS.

I'm not sure anyone can blame BEVRC. This news just came out today.

I would like to see an official statement about the EPS/EPO version. My friend have pre-ordered one X8, but if it will be from EPS, he's ready to cancel the order!

EPS will be OK for testing the platform, but paying 150 $ for something you know will be destroyed the first time you hit the ground is just not right.

Just my 2 cents.

EPS gutted this news is not good ! im glassing my eps mirage atm and its time consuming and not cheap the flyfly mirage is a lot smaller than the x8 i think it would take 3 to 4 times more glass to cover it. Will the epo one be more expensive then? I kind of assumed after the bad press the skywalker got when it first came out in eps that this one would be epo from the outset.

Please, make the EPO version and keep the dark color. Its looks very "stealthy" The dark X8 looks Great.

Im confused, so someone at the "skywalker factory" told you they are currently being manufactured from EPS?

With one post, you've basically caused internet rc airplane mass hysteria

Just would like some proof of this, and so far, BEV has said nothing with regards to EPO or EPS.

TBS Crossfire or DragonLink?
It went from "shipping after Jan 1st" to Jan 22nd.
.... and because of the Chinese New Years, everyone is
off of work for 1 month (meaning no shipping/parcels are working).
.....and updated to, not ready until March 2011.

dahhhhum x1000. :-)
