After trying to inspect the above photos in more detail ( difficult as the originals are so small), I think that the opening on the bottom may well be for cooling. The battery appears to be inserted through the top canopy hatch. I am also wondering if they will have an airframe only option, as I am supicious of that Chinese stuff.

I suggest to .paint in black color the roof of the cockpit. It's to provide a" visual depth".
And I suggest the installation of two jet pilots.

If you offer a painted version, please offer an unpainted version too. Many of us like a blank white airframe to paint as we wish.

Otherwise, has there been any info on WHERE this will be able to be purchased when released and at what price?

I am in love with this plane, at least so far. My suggestion would be a video that shows its features in detail, a kind of walk around, followed by a flight video. Of course, pricing and availability would be wonderful to know as well. My credit card is ready!!!

Oh, I forgot! How about some lights?? Nav, landing, and obviously, after burner light ring. Yes, I know this almost certainly is a non-afterburning engine, but it looks cool and anyone who is a stickler can simply disable it. I think it would look really really cool myself!

That's a BIG ASS Stinger haha! +1 on the black cockpit with or without pilots. Nav and burner lights would be VERY nice on a plane this size.

Great work thus far!

Nav lights and burner lights might be fun, but for me it will be in this order:

1. Flight performance
2. Quality of design and manufacture
3. All-up cost
3. Appearance items

I agree, the extras mean less battery I can carry which is less flight time...

One other point with regard to burner lights ... not scale and also I don't think you would want to do anything to restrict the exhaust. Performance first.
