It looks very much like one of the older Winners/Future Model planes that Hobbyking sold some years back.
That can only be a good sign

This looks incredibly similar in construction to the Edge 540 that popped up on banggood.

Dare I say it the banggood version is better looking ?

Also very similar to the Hacker 330sc

DOn't know price yet! This is not a new design. Hobbyking sold the plane for a while with this construction. I made a few changes, changed hardware and a few other things and did a new scheme...

Unlike My Wargo Yak 55, this one will be out soon. The yak took forever from the time I announced it.

So this with a different paint scheme?

Looks like a PP version of it.

I know OP says EPP, but the pictures don't look like EPP to me. The specs in the OP are copied straight off the EPP version page. Which means the weight is probably wrong, as I doubt the PP version weighs exactly the same as the EPP version.

Michael says "slim sheeted foam" at 0:38 in the video.. In other words, PP.

The foam is a little different. Not epp. It has stiffness like deport, just more flexible. Has hybrid of foams too. Inside and out. This will definitely fly differently than the one in the pic above. Same basic design with improvements.

PP , would be nice. Certainly sounds like its PP
Skywing re-released some of their old flat fuselage hybrid designs in PP (instead of EPP) . So maybee other manufacturers are doing the same. ?

Either way, the new paint scheme looks fantastic, and should be a step up for those flying the old flat foamy models such as the old Yak 55 EPP or Hummer.

In what way is this version different from the H-King MX2 3D EPP 955mm ARF version?

IT is lighter, better wing loading, better hardware, reinforced and supported around control horns with a long support going to edge of flight surfaces, and a few others...

This looks awesome. I saw the other one, didn't pull the trigger. I will definitely get this one. If wargo has anything to do with it, I know I will like it!
