Baisa made RTF kit


This is balsa made covered by printed film. An ARF kit.

Some of the Taiwan's flyers convert to electric, powered by BL motor.

The street price in the USA should be arround $110.

The container was shipped in last week from Taiwan, on the way to USA. I estimate the USA LHS should have this kit at early March, or even late of Feb. if the clear custom will not be delayed.

Although Horizon was our airplanes exclusive distributor, but they never import this kit into USA.

This will be the first time WIN WIND landing on USA.

Wish you like her style and great cost-performance.

Coming to Europe too? You never mention Europe here. only USA!

I would like to call to mind that the ONLY GWS Fansite so far is administered and designed in Europe, not the USA!!!

I think we europeans are Stepchildren for GWS.

Yes, Kyosho-de said they want to be our airplanes distributor for years, but not yet made the shipment of any.

Just spoke with their boss, another promise, hope this time they are really go for some thing.

Wow, that one kinda sneaked in without any warning.
.40 sized slimer eh? interesting. Kind of a departure from the foam electrics - does GWS make this themselves or is it contracted out?
Looks nice though!

I think GWS has made this for quite some time now...
Ha! But the foamies are best !

Mr Lin, I'm looking at it from another perspective ... one that say GWS is capable of designing and producing (be it in-house or out-sourced) built-up Balsa ARF models, and pretty decent sized ones to boot Can't wait till GWS starts offering Balsa ARF kits that are designed specifically for electrics In the meantime don't worry, I'm still buying GWS foamies.

Mr Lin,
What else does GWS make or sell that we Americans don't know about?

Win Win already arrival USA and stock in GWS USA.

Good to try Win Win with BL motor or other modification of GWS twin EPS-400C!

Or may be can be quad EDF55~64. or Twin EDF75...???

No need to waiting so much, both Win Win and Sky Hero are here in the GWS USA warehouse ready to go!

Pick up one from your favorite LHS, or order from your on-line supplyers.

For those that say FOAMIES ARE THE BEST, I assume that many say this because they want to keep flying Electrics and not GAS....well, I got a surprise for you all....

Check out my thread on my SKY RAIDER MACH-I by WORLD MODELS, a thick air foil semi-symmetrical wing SPORT TRAINER that really performs using a KYOSHO 4X4 BRUSH TRUCK MOTOR!

https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show...&page=10&pp=10

I fast forwarded to my Flight Report to avoid bordom with the build up...

This WIN WIND should fly just as well with the inexpensive KYOSHO ENDOPLASMA BRUSH MOTOR as well !
