New Product

Avios (Hobbyking) Sea Fury (4S 1200mm)


Thread index - all the key info linked in one place. Nice job Challenger11!

Launch videos, Feb 4th 2015...

Avios Hawker Sea Fury 1600mm - HobbyKing Product Video (3 min 33 sec)
Avios Hawker Sea Fury 1200mm PnF - HobbyKing Daily (3 min 28 sec)

Avios Hawker Sea Fury - Product Profile (15 min 44 sec)


From the latest weekly update, an interesting sneak preview... (click here to go to the relevant part of the video)

HobbyKing Live - 'Weekly Update' 04 (6 min 5 sec)

Span looks about 1100mm or slightly larger given how close in size it is to the EFX Racer (1100) hanging above it.

I wasn't particularly enthused by the P-40 announcement (few of us Brits will be... ), but this one I might need to make room for...

Updates from Stuart and Paul:

I'll let Paul give me details as and when he's ready. Flies nice

The project was a collaborative effort between Stuart and myself, most of the early development was with Stuart. As it does not fit the traditional mold for Durafly, it will be branded under our forthcoming new brand. We will have full details to come.

It will be in Royal Navy version and the Riff Raff Scheme releasing later.

Thanks for the confirmation Stuart.
Can I ask, is this going to be the one you where saying in another thread that would be 1200mm, and will it be under the new "Avios" brand??

Already in my calendar! Is that the 5 blade Spit prop on it I wonder??

I'm hoping they won't accept credit cards or cash up there??

Agree - nothing like the size on the Durafly 1100mm series

Hopefully this will be resolved with some decent size wheels before release (preferred) or replace them or this is a no go on grass

Paul and Stuart - any rough ETA??
