parkzone sukhoi ???


Hi I'm worked in the model trade and still do as holiday relief and a Saturday boy.
Whilst working I was looking through the horizon hobby trade price list the other day
“its product research and not shopping” as I tell the boss
anyway I notice theirs a part new number from Parkzone for a bind and fly Sukhoi
I call HH UK and they have no info on it as its too new.
Does anyone know what this will be or seen what PZ have on the cards for this year ?
Iv put it in the micro section cos I think It may be PZ version of the Kyosho edge but in a Sukhoi shape.
I think this cos when a company changes a design or produce something new they usually developed 2 models using the same internals to increase the sales.
Well I hope it is one of them.

product should be available this spring!!

The HH rep was in the shop today and I got to speak with him (as I wanted to order some stuff)
I questioned him about the part number and he reckoned we would be looking 3-6 month before this will relased
Well that’s will be the case here in the uk
That does tie in with what David has said “April - June” time.
BUT I WANT ONE NOW !!!! lol
I will add this to the other thread too.

Try to get some "publicity" photos while you're at it for your "research," will ya?

That's great to hear that it's going to be Suhkoi! It's neat that they're going to do actual scale representations of aerobatic planes and not just their own designs...

I have tried to get as much info on it as possible but either horizon hobby uk haven’t been given any info about it or they have been briefed and told to keep it real quiet.
All I could get from him was 3-6 months and it will be good!
Judging from the preproduction vid in the other thread it will be.
Couldn’t even get a ball park price as he didn’t know.

Any info I can find I will post

Hey MJ, you might want to keep a eye on that black vehicle out in the street for disclosing this info.

It does seem a very closely guarded secret.
It did make me think that now that I’ve said I would post any info I find on here,
Would I and the shop get blacked out on any new info on this plane.
