Hokusei Primus EPP Z


Primus EPP Z is Hokusei's most popular model in Japan. It has grown out of Hokusei's very sucessful Primus series. After several rounds of improvements over its predecessors, Hokusei calls Primus EPP Z the ultimate version of EPP Primus.

Edit: Primus EPP English Manual added

That looks very interesting. Does anyone know if this plane is sold in the US?

The only references I could find through Google were on Japanese sites. But this looks like a great pattern/3D hybrid from these videos.

Has anyone bought a plane from Wattaplane? I sent two emails and they both bounce back as failure to deliver.


Thanks!

Yeah, that website looks a bit sketchy. I'm not sure I'm confident buying from them without some more information.

I tried the order button at Wattaplane and it only shows the Space Rit through Paypal. I was hoping to see if they had some seller history but couldn't find any.

My thoughts exactly,i wont chance an online transaction.. especially when theres not much info or even customer service numbers. I realize its probally a direct overseas purchase but the site is extremly lacking in design. The space rit is the only model availble with no other planes to select. Im sure the site could be set up a little better,i didnt check it out through other means to find out who owns it or its start up date etc a US distributor would be great though. Hopefully theyll update it soon. Heres more info directly from Hokusei's Site on there full line of planes. Ive been in the market for quite some time for a nice epp plane thats $100.00 or less with a full or semi full fuselage,they have some attractive simple designs with lots of epp planes to select from. The epp extra 300 and the pattern hybrids look really cool,that primus 90 would be cool to do an electric conversion on to .

No surprise there. So, are you selling the Primus or just the Space Rit?
