    RE: ThunderTiger Rare Bear

    come the middle of july, they will then tell everyone at the end of august.....

    i wonder which company (the use of it's logo on the decals) is posing the barrier to getting those decals stamped and approved

    RE: ThunderTiger Rare Bear

    According to ads running in Model World, the planes are now "trademarked" and the ads show the new decal set installed on the plane. The delay is probably the slow boat from China and the overwhelming pre-orders response.

    RE: ThunderTiger Rare Bear

    oh, ok.

    i think i will wait till later in the year before getting one of these.
    i definately want one tho.

    if anyone has one built before the races, and is going to the races, a fun little picture would be a side-by-side shot

    papa bear and baby bear


    cheers

    Is that your EP version Toad? If so, how does it fly and what is the power source?

    RE: ThunderTiger Rare Bear

    that is a really sweet looking plane with the decals on.
    the question is: is it shipping yet?

    RE: ThunderTiger Rare Bear

    Man...I leave this thread for a couple weeks and now your talking about an electric Rare Bear. I'm just not even going to say it.....but I guess I will...Even the Ultrastick 40 with the Jett 90 on it would beat that thing!!! I could bring one of Sam's little electric airplanes for you to fly if your that hard up (Ages 8 and up)....HeHe..

    Should be in Lovelock This Friday Night!!! Bringing A New TF Sea Fury (Picking her up at Kareys in Reno on the way).

    Can you get away this weekend?
    Yeah...Yeah...Yeah...Bla...Bla...Bla

    RE: ThunderTiger Rare Bear

    I will be installing retracts in the Bear when I get it. You guys think doing a tail wheel retract is worth it?

    RE: ThunderTiger Rare Bear

    What kind of self respecting Rare Bear wouldn't have retracts? And which ones to use - robarts?


    Good news - Tower has switched from Late July to Mid July, that might be a whole day sooner now!

    RE: ThunderTiger Rare Bear

    How about using :

    http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXET15&P=7
    with
    http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXET28&P=V
    and
    http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...&I=LX7110&P=ML

    Although you'd be buying an extra retract for a nose wheel your total would be $122.97

    RE: ThunderTiger Rare Bear

    This model is slower coming out than the real Rare Bear is flying. There are alot of Dago red models out there ready to go. I would suggest buying one of those as a protest to the slow release of Rare Bear.

    RE: ThunderTiger Rare Bear

    Just got an email from Ace's Steve Clem

    "The good news is Rare Bear is here. The bad news is, we didn't get our full
    shipment. They are coming in three shipments, so the shops are getting them
    as we do. "


    I hope it's going to be a winner!!! (Sure looked like a beauty when I saw it Last October at the Vegas Trade show!!)

    RE: ThunderTiger Rare Bear

    Tower now says, early August and no details or specifications have been posted.

    Anticipation is half the fun. If only the add said "Rare Bear and Woman" it might make the anticipation that much better.

    RE: ThunderTiger Rare Bear

    Finally after 8 months of being on order, mine is shipping tomorrow.

    Quantam Models has a better price than Tower, $299.
    Looking forward to finished Bear pics here...

    RE: ThunderTiger Rare Bear

    I called Chief and they still had one for 289.00 but would be 20.00 for shipping.....I'm cheap enough to wait on Quantum at 289.00 plus no shipping charge
