Same plane as the Nitro Model, different color and much higher price once you factor in the $90+ to ship it to the USA. Also, never know what condition the plane will be once it's delivered to your door. Just order one from Nitro Friday of last week and it will be delivered June 2. Much shorter wait time than the 4+weeks I waited for the damaged models from HK.

For a 90mm Jet, this is just a tad bit to small...

But I must admit the color scheme looks fantastic!

NS.

Price shipped to Canada:

Nitroplanes:$249 + $117 = $366
HobbyKing: $176 + $59 = $235

Service from Hobbyking = nonexistant.
Service from Nitroplanes = ?

Dude, we've been discussing this jet since time began:

https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show....php?t=1534727

It is the same one as Nitroplanes. It's made by China Pro 09.

Sorry but I disagree. I have this model (camo scheme) and if it is a bit small for a 90mm model, well then my HET L39 and HTG L39 are small 90mm models too...

(or the Jet-teng L39 for that matter)


BTW, it will be interesting too see if HK has the correct CG in their manual. Cmpro´s first manual had the CG wrong by an inch (very tail heavy...).

Here is a video of my "prototype"

If you are using only a 6S like me IMO it's not a small jet; It's heavy and takes a while to lift off.

Looks structurally like the L-39 although it is supposed to have a longer nose.

Beautiful paint. Hope the manual's CG is not wrong like the L-39's seemed to be.

Kimhey: your flight videos are igniting more fire!

Definitely I will reinforce the wings.

They have stretched the wing compared to my 90mm HTG L-39. The HTG version has a much longer fuselage with the same size wing (or slightly less).

Looking at an actual L-59 you might be right about the nose. I can't say until I get one.

And thats the reason, why the CMP / HK / "is eh wurscht" looks like from a cartoon...
I dont like the dimensions of this "new" L59 form HK/CMP. It is way too short.

The HTG is made of foam, but looks way better!! And if you stay 2m away...
