Very nice looking model....I wonder what the differences will be between that one and the new Dynam.

The nacelles and general outline look a tad more scale for starters. I'm interested in the size comparison to the Dynam.

With near the same external specs as the Dynam, I'm a little confused as to why Freewing is going to bother with it but I'm sure they have a reason that I'm not privy to. I see a 6s pack, and that's good for efficiency. Aside from electronics and a two seat canopy I suppose time will tell. (I like 6s but not so sure on the two seat canopy, I prefer the looks of a the single seat 262). Assuming the 6s power system is telling of what to expect in the rest of the model, the details and equipment might be a little better in this one. The fans might be the weakest link... 70mm fans can sound horrible when they are cheap... But an upgraded setup would be nice (anyone say Kit?)

As far as the airframe goes I see nice details like multiple gear doors and inlets that are more scale like and probably more along the lines of 100 percent FSA for the fans (the Dynam looks like 120 percent FSA inlets at least, lots of drag for no reason as they are bigger than scale! And the exhaust is too big as well!!) Looks like the Freewing would be a far better "kit" or quickie ARF for someone wanting a nice foamie warbird that is also closer to scale.

Wish it was a twin 90mm foamy.
Otherwise it looks pretty good.

That would have been so cool to have a twin 90mm. About a 74" wing span maybe. Oh well.

Eddie P, The fans & motors aren't bad at all. They are what I put in my Dynam ME-262. Maybe you missed the vid. They are from an SU-35

Dynam, ME-262 Maiden on 8-17-2012 (3 min 51 sec)

This Freewing ME-262 looks to have more scale detail than our Dynams......

Any indication on price?

I can tell you that the Dynam with 2 x CS10 fans on 5S is as fast as my 90mm foamies....

It should end up at $299.00 here I'll bet.

It seams to only have one less servo than the SU-35 so I bet it has flaps. No Vectored Thrust Nozzles.

It should be a tad cheaper than the SU-35


I hope they embeded the ESC's in the wings like they should have done with the Dynam.
