world's slowest builder

@mutant ninja. Maybe Eflite version will come later...seems that way now. I think they have done other simultaneous releases. Horizon is basically just a distributor of FMS for the US market with a quick rebrand. FMS factory direct supplies markets that Horizon does Not cover and planes that are not Rebranded by Horizon...like Futura or Avanti. I wonder if E-flute passed on this one?

Either way, I doubt I will be able to resist a Rafale like this for long...

No I was talking about an Eflite version with AS3X might happen. Id never heard with reflex until this add. I guess FMS has their own PNP gyro setup now...

I see, I missed that part from the description: "Functions such as delta-mixing, sequential landing gear bay doors, alternating flash navigation lights, nose gear landing lights, slowed flaps etc are all controlled by a central control board."

Will see if it can be taken out.

And yes, Reflex seems to be the default PNP gyro for FMS. Came with my Beaver as a default option.

Because I've had issues with Freewing blue box and don't want to take a risk. Just an option.

i think they have lost the plot on the price if this preorder is anything to go by.

Pre-order on Turbines RC for $574, i was waiting for this plane but the price is high compared to the new freewing JAS-39 which is almost $200 dollars cheaper. Think ill preorder the freewing.

That's $165.00 US more than the Gripen sold in the USA. Models tend to be higher priced when sold in Europe. I'd say knock off about $75.00 to $100.00 when Horizon sells it and you've got a difference of about 70 to 80 bucks, which is not too out of line given the included flight system of the Rafale. So, it might be 50 bucks more than the Gripen - still too much difference for many.

$500+ is unreasonable
