Let us know what you find out, Kyle. I'm sure we'll both eventually score one.

Thanks for checking, Kyle.

No worries, they'll be back in stock eventually. Most of us have plenty of planes to keep us occupied in the meantime.

I've just about decided to assemble this biplane while waiting for the Ultimate to come back in stock:

http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...&I=LXDZYB&P=ML

Its a gorgeous model that's been on my mind since it was introduced a couple of years ago. I've reread the several reviews of it, and studied the manual. Looks like it could keep me busy for a while until the Ultimate arrives.

I'm surprised that I can't locate a very active Curtis Hawk thread here on RCG. Just this older review with very little activity:

Am I missing some other discussion on this plane? Any of you bipe fans out there have one of these?

Nope, I don't own this specific model but, I found "other" discussion activity at this other threads:

Thanks, Carlos. But both of those links are to the older, long discontinued, 76" span version. This smaller, electric one came out approx mid 2014 but looks almost identical to the old bigger one.

Maybe I'll try to revive the review thread. I've got the plane on the way from Tower and the power system and servos coming from Altitude Hobby. Should be a fun assembly project.

Dave,

Hope those ugly feeder storms from the Hurricane has not damaged anything over at your parts!

Gee, I didn't pay attention. Had no idea that there were different sizes on this model.

Yes, look forward on your assembly project as this looks very unique!

Yeah I received email notification. Sort of strange how they had it labeled on the web site. Almost wonder if there was an issue and they pulled the item to inspect/correct?

Sure enough. I decide on an alternative, order everything and get it ready to assemble - and the Ultimate shows back up.

My relentless thinning of the fleet has paid off, though. And I'm in a position where I can start some more planes. I'd like to catch a sale or E-cash promotion on the Ultimate, but I hesitated last time, and .......
