This looks like it will be lots of fun! Great job and it's nice to see you in the larger EDF jet game.

Two points of interest that I would like to see FMS change, especially on their jets:

1. Please add nylon hinging on all control surfaces. It's almost 2017, and the foam hinging isn't cutting it.

2. FMS pilot figures are usually pretty bad, and this is no exception. Many times the same pilot is used for many airframes without much thought to scale size and/or scale look.

I will forward your comment to our team, the second comment is good, even I don't like the current FMS pilot figures.

Thank you . I don't mean to be rude in any way, just to clarify. I just want you folks to be competitive in the market and offer the best jets (and airplanes in general) that you can. Please take the first point to heart as well. Foam hinging on planes meant to go fast and be "Sporty" wear over time, and us hobbyist have to install nylon hinging ourselves. Nylon hinges are reliable and safer than foam or taped hinges. When other manufacturers (essentially your competitors) have nice nylon hinges on all surfaces, it becomes the standard of what folks begin to look for when shopping for new aircraft.

Keep it up and thanks!

Thanks for your comment, I already informed our team about hinges, I am sure for the future models, we will use the new hinges instead of the foam hinge.

Excellent, thank you! We appreciate you being understanding and listening to feedback, as well as incorporating it into the airplanes during their design.

This Futura will be nice, but bigger would be better!

A 90 mm Yak 130 in the sport scheme would be fantastic, keep it light.

I like the way Bob thinks. Make it light and make sure it has enough power too!
