New Avios Scale Plane

HobbyKing keeps on rolling out the cool stuff and the announcement of the new Avios C-130 earlier this week gets us excited! This is a beast of an airplane with 4 motors and really nice scale details. It's going to have a lot of goodies with it too like split flaps, a scale cockpit, functional tail door, scale retracts, fancy scale props and interior lighting. It really should be a fantastic scale foamie. The wingspan is 1600mm and it will come with 18A ESC's all around, an external BEC unit for the radio gear, 13 analog servos and it will run a 4S 2200-3000 lipo battery packs. They also said it will have decal sets for different countries so you'll get your pick over the final look of the model. No word yet on final pricing or expected delivery dates.

Keep up with the latest details on the main discussion thread here

I was in the Blue Angels' support plane when they flew at Quincy Illinois' bicentennial in the 70s
This on is going to be a MUST HAVE

This is a MUST HAVE plane. I am not going to fly. Just hang it on my ceiling for display.

Ohhh the possibility of an MC-130E conversion in my future DOES still exist!
Worked with them a bit in the Air Force in the late 70's and while the newer schemes would definitely be more visible I always thought the Black & Green scheme looked soooo bad as!

This plane is definitely on my list! Just a question, the full size Herc does not have counter rotating props, I believe this one does. Would it make a huge difference to the flight characteristics to switch these motors over to all spinning the same direction?

Jim,
Are the flaps full length or just on the inboard?

Anything less than $600.00 for this kit makes it a steal

Beautiful Herk. I wish it was twice the size though.
