Looks very nice and modern compared to their previous offerings. It also looks a lot like a small Krill models Spark. It just needs the leading edge dog tooth. I had a WM Groovy once and it was a decent ARF. This one looks better.

I think a lot of these places drop ship from China...if you know of any U.S. companies that stock WM products in the U.S., I'd be interested to learn about that. I certainly wish this were the case, because Frank and Winners Models is a great company who have done some innovation, and I wish them growth in the U.S. market.

Hey, that's a big servo on the rudder...pull pull?
