FMS 980mm P-40B


Update! The official photos have been released of the paint scheme. Looks like FMS listened to the RCGroup members and got the paint scheme right.

Well since no one has done it yet. I am going to start the thread. This is the new 980mm FMS P-40B. And it looks awesome! I will be an owner when it comes out. The picture is from the FMS Facebook page. It's the first official picture of the finished product. They are at the 2014 Beijing RC manufactures trade show.

Wonder if this means the 1100mm Durafly will also be a B model?

I think they should do some work on the paint and decals. The paint should be darker brown and green. Also the mouth and eyes should be different. I hate to see this great model look like the former P-40.

If Durafly's upcomming P-40 is a B it will be a hard choice for me. I would like it better at 1100mm. And of course if FMS decides to bump it up to 1400mm they would get my money really fast.

Hard to say but with Stuart Warne on the crew at H-K, there will be ample skill on hand to guide them to make a choice P-40, if they need some help.
