Extreme Flight were displaying their new 64″ MXS-EXP and the FW-190. Both feature the new printed covering technique being employed on their air-frames.
Some nice air-frames from SIG. The giant rascal is amazing and employs a very smart pin technology to frame the fuselage in no time at all.
Aerobeez were displaying a selection of their Gas and Electric models. If you have not seen the 60cc Slick and Extra up close yet you are missing out on the quality and the sheer size of these air-frames.
New from icare-rc is the beautiful fusion edf.
