I think I already asked Kyosho about the F22 and the answer was that it would not be coming stateside.

I SURE hope that is not the case with the Tornado though! Suh - weeet!

These look amazing but doesn't Kyosho have a long (and growing) history of vaporware?

Where's that F-2?

Both look like nice models, and i like the full flying stabilizers on the Raptor.

Their website says 450~500 grams thrust. Yea right. My Kyosho F-4 makes 300 grams thrust on the Kyo 55mm fan and motor. Unless they upgraded to like a 5000kv+ motor or something it aint gonna happen.

The description says it has a 3 position wing. It can be set "pre-flight". I'm guessing that means it swings on the ground, manually. Awesome.

I always wanted a Tornado but there are a few questions I need answered before going for the wallet.
1. Will the wings swing in the air or not?!?
2. How scale is it? The Kyosho F16 wings , for instance, are oversized and unscale and if this is the case with the Tornado too, then I've lost a good chunk of interest in the model already...
3. Single or twin DF?
4. Cheater holes or just "normal" intakes?

Anyway, hopefully a good rieview will be available soon so my prayers will be answered.

I dont think they can swing in the air! Says it only comes with 2 servo's, a single 55 EDF unit! As far as scale looks it resembles a Tornado and will do the job in my op.

Have a look at the links above to see the pictures of it and it might answer some of those questions a little better?
