Discontinued Airplane Models you want to see Back exactly as they were or Improved


I am tired to see al this awesome models that were in Hobbyking at one point in time but they are not anymore.

Which one would you like to see coming back. Specially the one they made. Add the names big and bold. maybe we can make a poll if there is enough participation. Also try to add add pictures or videos from the web.
If you owned one and were familiar with some issues the model had that could be improved mention it.
Also if there is a model that still is available in the page but its looking like is going to be discontinued or is going to, because is only available at one warehouse name it too.
I am not familiar with them so I will say to HK just go through the thread of the models and Improve whatever people were having problem with or were modifying. Always add navigation Lights. Always add Rudder and ailerons. If scale add flaps and retractable landing gear with shock absorption.

So here is my list. Common suggestion for all of them is to bring them back with the new quality foam Hobbyking is capable to make these days.
P-26A Peashooter EPO Could come back as a Durafly , 4s capable

WE NEED A NEW IMPROVED CORSAIR F4U , 4s capable

WE NEED A NEW HOBBIKING ULTRA LINE OF EPO ULTRA MICROS AROUND 400MM TO COMPETE WITH THE AWFUL UMX PRICES. SPECIALLY FOR US NON US PEOPLE. 3s capable

Durafly D.H.110 Sea Vixen Bring it back with LED, RUDDER, Gear Doors. Carbon fiber roads on the booms.

DH 100 Vampire MK 6 Still available in some warehouses but we need an improved V2 with nav lights, gear doors, carbon fiber roads on the wings and on the booms, gears with shock absorption. Far better foam quality, the foam is to soft. same paint scheme for me. I know there supposedly a V2 about to came out but I hope they release it with this improvement mentioned and also this same paint scheme I am not fan of the one with vampire teeth.

Awesome Rob.
Rob Please start a hobbyking Mirco line around 400mm 3s (to compete against UMX) , for us city guys ( that don't live in the United States, very expensive shipping ) that usually can only fly in very small parks or front street
and a wonderful very different model for durafly and maybe even for micro what about a Grumman F3F with working retracts for the big version

I'm sure i read on here or heard in a HK weekly video that they were bring back some of these models but with a few improvements,unless i'm losing the plot but going by what HKCS are saying here then maybe i'm not.

Oh and i'd love to see the Sea Vixen and Vampire come back with a couple of improvements.

Sea Vixen is still available under a different brand name quite easily found.
One can also find OrangeRX T-Six transmitters rebranded, in either jaffa orange or grey mouldings with receivers (and an 8 channel.version!) easily too cheaper than at HK!

You Mean your Youtube CHANNEL?
I surf the HK store every week in search for deals, new products, also waiting for many stuff that are out of stock to be restocked.
I watch all the videos uploaded on the youtube channel. So I hope to see good news about this soon.

If you mean the HSD D.H.110 Sea Vixen seems to be discontinued. They also had a silver red bull one. I would love to see a silver one none red bull. The lines details are more eye popping with the silver one than the dark blue one. IMHO

HSD Vixen is easily available in three different options - bare kit with no retracts, kit with retracts or full pnp from at least half a dozen places. As for the Red Bull colours - a travesty! But at least it helped get the real thing in the air!

Yes I am not fun of the Red Bull logo and stuff but I really Like it in Silver more than the dark blue. Its shapes show up more IMHO Also a light silver is a good canvas for adding other colors on top of it if you want to customized it more.

I only found one online store that is seems to have the HSD Vixen.

Bring back the EPO


Not sure if the one on the Flite Test review is the same one

This other one has some cool details and awesome pilot
IMHO a good looking pilot with a scraft is a must


https://hobbyking.com/it_it/fokker-d...m-epo-pnf.html













Bring it back With all the improvements it needs, as stated here LOL

It seems it needed a better power system to really perform to its full potential.

and it had an ugly shine paint, needs a mate one for sure.
