I pre-ordered pretty much the minute I saw this! Bring it!

A nice looking plane for sure but I think they will strike out with this offering. A different color 3S/4S PT-17 is not enough to make a dent in the market IMHO. The 3S/4S market is flooded and the 1S brushed planes are losing interest fast as the fad fades.

A much needed hole that needs filled is the same plane half that size, half the price, 2s brushless powered and a yellow T-28 in 2S while your at it.............

I like the scale engine detail

Will any 'plug and play' versions be in the first shipment? I have no need for the HH receiver.

I also like the sprung LG. This looks like a fun bipe!

That's always the intent, and usually the case.

Sure hope so, Dave. I want this bipe! And, thanks to Matt for bringing back the 'biplane era' to the 1100mm EPO category.

I bet this will sell quite well. Maybe it will encourage HH to bring back some WWI era bipes to
their lineup.

Nice looking plane
a couple good featurs like disassembly with out using a standard screwdriver that slips out and damages the foam (history on this with me)

I'm glad they video showed it on grass.

if space and money permits i will get one i do not currently have a large biplane or a place to store one

a 280 size would be a lot easier for me to store..

I love Corsairs!
That's a good looking plane! I wish it were a little bigger though.

I haven't been impressed with anything out of Horizon for a couple of years.

Now, I have hope for them again. Looks to have some very nice detail, fits several batteries, no tool assembly, grass capable, smooth paint job, sprung struts, and most importantly a realistic price. Get it under $200 for a PnP, and I'm betting they kill it with this one.

Good Job, Horizon. Welcome back to the game!

Looks like the Horizon Hobbies/FMS/Force RC marriage is reaping some dividends....!

I wouldn't be surprised in the least to find out this is the 1100mm FMS PT-17 of old, slightly revamped into this fine looking Bipe

Definitely gettin' some popcorn on this one !!!
