They are not available in the U.S yet. The kit is made in Germany. I spoke to David at Hobby Lobby a couple of weeks ago and he said they are going to start carrying the "Turn-Left" in about a month. He stated to keep checking the Hobby Lobby website.

That's pretty cool looking but is it a "warm-racer" or a pylon racer?

More TL photos


Hobby Lobby is currently "evaluating" the TurnLeft to see if they want to offer it -- that means they have a couple and are flying them. I'd guess it will turn up soon in their flying field photos and then on the website. I too was told, "a month or two."

The wing is foam core with balsa sheeting. Anyone know what the wingspan is? I asked David how much Hobby Lobby was going to sell it for and he said he didn't know yet, but "like most Simprop products, it is going to be expensive".

Back in here it costs about 100-130 euros depending if the wing is already film covered or not. So, quite cheap it is. I have the Lift Off XXS that has the same wing and stab and it flies like a F5D in slow motion-about 115 sec times with a brushed car motor-a FAI setup would explode it unless you bag the wing with something strong. The wingspan is 122 cm, about 48 inches-quite close to the new rules span. Turn left is a warm-racer-but because of its size, much nicer to fly than the 400-stuff. Troy, sent you mail!
