It looks as if it may be an Auto"G" in a pretty block of foam with just roll on the head. Looks like a servo on each side of the fuz for the elevator and rudder. I'm sure this is aimed at all the auto"G" flyers that have come to a dead end as there has been nothing for them to move onto in the plug and fly range. I can only hope this will get more onto the dark side.

It is.

Tail wobbling is easy to deal with by adding a couple of carbon spars.

In the video the guy says it is going to come out early spring-ish, meaning 'their spring'. I wonder what that can be in a calendar. HK support were not able to tell any dates when I inquired. The answer was "Keep watching on our website."

Here is a photo of the Super-G HK posted earlier.
My guess is that it will be well over 100 bucks even in a kit version.

CRASHING IS THE EASY PART

In the right hands it will fly good when Paul from hobbyking flew it great he did crash it but it was pilot error. The next day they flew a new one no problems. I saw it my club the following week and no good bad ending..

Okay, the G2 has a pre-rotator and requires a 5th channel. This one has a pre-rotator but only requires 4 channels. Any ideas?
