    Peter, they started telling me the shipment would arrive in 5-6 weeks back during July 2010. It's a good thing I didn't hold my breath! Just thought you might want to know so you could plan ahead____Everette

    RE: Extreme Flight Vanquish 2m Build Thread

    The plane was do out 2-years ago... so a nother season will not matter much now....
    I am sure it is a great flying plane...
    It is difficult to purchase something else in the meantime though....
    Spend 450+$ for a smaller pattern plane 1.20 size....hmm
    Not many options right now....

    One could always pick up a Integral for a 1000$ for the white version...

    At 650$ = plane
    and 100$ for shipping... 750$ it is a very good bargin.. to be had...
    WOrth converting to IC engine ...for me..

    Contact F3AUnlimited about the Monolog. It's $850. They should have an idea when they will be available. People forget we used to pay $250 - $300 for a 60 size glass fuse and foam cores about 20 years ago. Imagine what they would be today factoring in inflation?

    The Monolog will be another great option. It reminds of the focus back in the day. Nice flying airplane

    I got the same answer in July. It's puzzling for sure.

    Yeah, I'm watching carefully for the 2M Osiris. 62" is still available from EspritModel and F3AUnlimited, 3DHS is in the process of moving their HQ to Lancaster, PA so their site is blocking orders.

    I paid $275 for a new Sequel 2m pattern kit (fiberglass fuse, foam cores, and the manual) back in 1995. Factoring in inflation in US, it would cost me about $407 today. I used this inflation calculator.

    RE: Extreme Flight Vanquish 2m Build Thread

    Well, I am sorry to say that delays and trying to fill all the other orders for popular planes/parts has slowed things down a bit.
    They are on the container that is currently on the water...that's all I have for now.

    That's better than anything else you could have said except for "they're here!" :-)

    So, since they are on the water, preorders????? Pleeeease? :-) :-)

    RE: Extreme Flight Vanquish 2m Build Thread

    I really wish I could get one in an ARC format, but I'm fairly certain I'm in the minority there. I suppose I can live with stripping the covering to do my own scheme and repainting the glass parts.

    RE: Extreme Flight Vanquish 2m Build Thread

    Chris had a few planes in white a few years ago due to requests from customer wanting to do their own schemes and they ended up just sitting around the warehouse gathering dust so it make better sense for those who want their own schemes to just strip the covering if they choose too.
    I know many guys out there do awesome covering jobs but I know personally I couldn't do as nice a job as the factory does but I also understand the need and want to have your own scheme.

    It's Oracover, and on a new plane this comes off quite easy. At $650, you can spare the $150 to re-cover it I guess

    @BR: if you guys would have been so frank from the beginning, less ppl would hate me in the US now :P

    RE: Extreme Flight Vanquish 2m Build Thread

    Hezik,
    It wasn't a matter of being "Frank".... it was just circumstances. I myself have wanted one since the first ones we flew but things just happen and it wasn't ready for production, and then the need for other airframes and parts took a bit of precedence....
