Default NEW Avios Grand Tundra (unbox and flight test video)

At 1.7m wingspan this is one BIG foamie. Bigger is better and this Grand Tundra flies much like it's original 1.3m version from 2 years ago but in a BIGGER much more stable way. Same big Bush wheels, same big barn door flaps...but there are some awesome new enhancements. 6 part light system is one nice addition as are the turbulators on top of the wing to reduce the stall speed.

Why took these so long to come to market? They were advertising these as ready to ship last November and now it looks like they won't ship ANY retail planes until after April First.

They have finally started shipping out the GT, nearly a year and a half after they said it would ship. In 2017 it would have been a great airplane. Midway through 2018 it is already outdated. No clear windows?
And they have already agreed to replace the weak ESC's that come with the plane. 18 months of planning and no one at HK checked out the ESC's? What a joke.
