Looks great brings the C-27 to mind, we tested the C-27 back in the day, fantastic plane.

When it's on sale I may have to pick one up. Should sell well,
Jeff...

I'll probably install landing lights in the EC-1500. Good times ahead!

xplaneguy,

The EC-1500 has landing lights just inside the cuffs outside of the nacelles. They are brighter than they look in the photo as the photographer messed with exposures to get the plane as well as the lights.

I saw the EC-1500 in person today at my local hobby shop and the lights are much brighter than in the picture above.

so is this like the 1.5m Timber that was not modelled after a existing plane?

Googlin' the Alenia Aermacchi C-27J Spartan and it looks just like it... and the props on this one would be kinda cool

Think of it as a "semi-scale" C-27J that can do regular scale cargo-plane stuff, and can also do 3D if you wish!

Haven't been so excited about a new product in such a long time! Well except for the new carbon cub the timber X turbo Timber actually everything new from Horizon excites me.

Speaking of which when is the Mike Patey Wilga Aka Draco on preorder?

After that do we get turbulence to kill the EFX extra?

Then of course you have to do the scrappy overpowered Carbon Cub build he's doing throwing in a Lycoming engine.

That would be epic to have a replica of that. With a cockpit for pan tilt fpv so we can utilize headtracking and pretend I'm a flying cowboy!!?

Maybe that's a bit much but y'all can pull it off lol

Preordered the EC-1500 BNF with the optional toilet paper Chute
