From HobbyKing:
Introducing the highly anticipated and eagerly awaited, Avios Grand Tundra. Don't miss out! Secure your Grand Tundra Today
The Durafly Tundra has a massive cult following within the RC community and rightfully so as It's easily one of the best flying models on the market with an impressive flight envelope. The overwhelming success of the Tundra fuelled our ambition to design a larger version of the Durafly Tundra. Following in the footsteps of its smaller cousin, the Grand Tundra encompasses all your favorite features but on a larger scale.

Enjoy short take-off and landings with huge 90-degree flaps, wing vortex generators, large tundra wheels, optional floats, navigation lights and much more. The Grand Tundra happily flies on 4S, however, on 6S you'll realize there is another side to the GT. This is when the GT comes to life as it's no ordinary PNF model. If you have never tried skis or floats then this plane is for you and its something that everyone must try as there is nothing like landing or taking off on water.

Avios Grand Tundra 1700mm PNF - HobbyKing Super Daily (2 min 56 sec)


The Grand Tundra is an impressive RC aircraft with a huge presence in the air. The wide flight envelope makes for a very forgiving aircraft giving you the confidence to challenge yourself.

The gauntlet has been thrown!
But the price is a little steeper than anticipated...

It was said that people were going to "have them" by the end of the month. I guess they just meant have a chance to pre-order one before the end of the month.

So "soon" has become "pre-order" but is still not yet "now".

This post from the closed thread sure made it sound like people were going to have the plane in hand by the end of the month. Maybe Pre-Order doesn't mean it will take significantly longer than regular order. Maybe they are just anticipating huge orders, and letting people get their order in while they are currently unpacking the container(s).

And there is a perfect example not to close old threads!!
You can not quote directly from them!!
And probably still a bit early to start an owners thread. Still going to get people winging and moaning that it's not available!!

Just to clarify: I did place my "pre-order" . I had some Bonus Points built up. Good time to cash them in.
