Yeah, you could say he is affiliated with hobby king.
He's the pretty face you see in the video introducing this plane.

Great news Scott. I know the weather has been nice enough to fly there now. Care to upload a video of this plane flying or are we going to have to beta test it?

I am a fan of all things DeHavilland, being a Dash 8 mechanic. I just orderd this beauty before it goes out of stock! Thanks for designing the Durafly range aroud the 2200 3s packs, clever move ! Hope this plane flys as good as my Vampire! Please keep all of these less oft modeled planes coming! Prepare to rake in the sheckels Hobbyking!

Magnificent video and great price on the plane. Can't wait to get one in hand. She looks stunning in flight. Like she is just slicing at the sky. The historical narration is great and really adds to the nostalgia of the plane. Again, wonderful job on the plane and video.

Sucks because I really want to get one but I am currently tapped out. Hopefully it wont take them too long to get them back in stock as I am sure they will sell out quick.
