um i have the magazine around here somewhere.
i think but sont sure it goes something like this
81 inch wingspan
12 -13 pounds
ment for os 160 or 40cc gas
paint sceme is to die for in my mind looks like one more thing to spend on. i think it is just begging for a zdz 40.

Do you really think that Great Planes would not want you to post a picture of something that they are advertising in a Magazine? What am I missing here?

I think you can post a copy righted picture here, as long as you include the source and it's not used for monetary purpose. This is a discussion forum after all.

Looks like the H9 260, but a yak. Nice. My guess 8 to 8.5 pounds bare judging by the 12.5 pound advertised weight.

Wouldn't it be nice if EF did one of these in this size....6.5 to 7 pounds bare. --11 pounds RTF with OS 1.6 or 12 pounds with B2.4. It would be phenomenal. I still don't think the margins are there though--probably costs just as much to make as a 50cc bird but not enough people want to pay $600+ for a large glow/40cc plane.

Probably, just like the Ultimate they released, the cost will be much lower once it hits the shelves. I can see this plane in the $375-$399 category, just like the Hanger 9 Extra. Diff is, Hanger 9 tells you up front what it is gonna cost, Great planes gives you their "I wish!" price & then lowers it to a more realistic price when they release it.

Actually, Chris has a new 74 incher to replace the 68 inch yak. It was designed around an os 1.60. Should be sweet.

How do you know about It? That sounds great. Would be nice in an Extra 260 also.[sm=cool.gif] My guess is that is what the new 50cc EF will be.
