It looks like they finally gave you the ability to adjust or turn off AS3X, although i'll probably just leave it on. At least we don't have to hear people complain about AS3X, now you can have it your way.

Looks nice! I want one. I assume this will probably replace the Extra 300?

Looks like a more streamlined Multiplex Acromaster.

All of these contribute to the slightly higher price point, but add much more value than they do cost.

Wow, this really looks like it would do some great 3D. I still have not bought the Edge 540QQ yet, so it is gonna be a battle between the two...........save some money and get the Edge or go for size and get the VisionAire?

I am assuming that the flight characteristics/flight envelope of the VisionAire is comparable to the Edge?

All in all though, I am really impressed with you guys at HH/Parkzone. This looks like a real winner.

If you say so. It's a bit over priced for the size it's competing in though. I'm sure the AS3X Super Fans will be all over it. I'm courious to see a real owners video after these start shipping. My 41" Edge 540 only cost $100 for the frame and just over $200 to build with quality parts... Wondering how this will compare to it.

The ability to adjust the AS3X or turn it off is the best feature. I'm in!

Eliminate the battery and charger, offer it for 249 and you've got something.

I would probably go for the Edge right now but if there were a BNF Basic version I would totally get this.

Keep the BNF package and bring out a BNF Basic package. BAM!

BAM!

I'm in no hurry for a new plane as the weather isn't ideal. Hopefully, in time, they will release a BNF Basic package. (Hint hint)

Yep a BNF Basic would definitely help those of us that have batteries and better chargers. Drop those off and make it $230-$250 and I'd be in.

hi all..

looks nice and I see the "Stratos Firebird" landing gear Seems it is the same...
Hope Horizon did her homework after the Edge QC postings and this plane comes in known perfect Quality
I will wait the first reviews...the price is high and this has to expect a near perfect plane...we will see....

Yep, that is basically the case for me, too.
