We've long been anticipating the release of the GWS A-10 and B-2. In fact, it's been so long that I think many have given up on them.

Nic,

The multi-motor planes are around. You just need to look for them. Multiplex has the 4-motor Cargo, the TwinJet, and the Twin Star. Wattage and Hobby Lobby also have some multi-motor models.

One of the reasons for the small number of these models is that the added complexity, cost, and weight are less attractive to the beginning R/Cer. This means a smaller market share becomes your target customer and this is less attractive to the manufacturer.

The experienced R/Cer has other options though. He can stratch build one from plans or convert a glow plane. So don't afraid to experiment while you wait for a new model to arrive.

Regards.

Experimentation is a beautiful thing in the realm of parkies. I totally agree! Here's my switchback sport twin.

Don't forget the Hobby-Lobby Bumble Bee couldn't get it to take off from H2O but it sure flies great! And the twins drum in the thing because it's hollow, very different sound to it.
