Durafly 950mm V-Tail Bonanza


Spotted this 950mm Durafly V-Tail Bonanza at the Queensland HobbyKing Live event this morning on the Durafly table!
Looks like a belly lander, as there is no provision for landing gear.
More details to come........

This would've been perfect if it had retracts. With the EFlite Bonanza practically extinct and the E-DO model Bonanza discontinued (apparently), this could've taken the place of both.

I already want it but my field destroys belly floppers.

At 1000mm, they could've added retracts. The 980mm P-39 has trike retracts. And flaps.

Also the fact that the cowl and fuselage aren't colormatched is kind of cheap looking.

Is there anything you DON'T complain about??
I don't think I've ever seen a plane you are happy with!
Maybe you should start manufacturing these planes and see if you get everything perfect the way everyone wants them!!
The plane pictured is a pre production plane.
I think most foam planes with plastic cowls never get a 'perfect' match.

I normally have zero interest in civilian planes like that, but as a smaller sized HT/BL (hand tossed/belly lander) , I can almost imagine buying that one… If it’s cheap enough…

The yellow and red ones in the background though?

Looks kind of bigger than a normal EFX racer, alu spinner, etc..

Wouldn't have clue!!
I wasn't interested in it so never really took any notice of it.
I only talked to Stephen about this plane the and the new colour scheme for the T-28 and a couple of other scale planes.

Is this a rebranded plane from another manufacturer? A V-Tail would be cool to have.

Not that I'm aware of. E-DO model makes a foamy Bonanza but it's 1200mm. Has a straight and v-tail option but may have been discontinued. RC Castle was the only vendor I ever saw selling it.

Yes, This is a pre-production sample.

Runs on a 2200 3S and you can add the wings tanks or leave them off.
