Default Diamond Dust Will Return!

I just talked to Jeff Gilbert, the owner of Diamond dust. He said his knee surgeries went well but his overall health could be better. Jeff told me that his company is being sold to a well known RC plane manufacturer. The kits will be made in the U.S.A and he expects them to be available in two months. The website www.diamonddustrc.com should be up and running in a month or two with more info.

That's all for now.

As much as wanted a DD before, I will not do business with Morris Hobbies. He can keep his DD. That guy is a classic "B.S. Artist."

The dealings I have had with Morris as an international buyer have been um..... poor.

I have other words for them, but the post will get deleted I would like a dust, but not from Morris.

Well, they're on the Morris site now!

I just put myself down for one... maybe I should even order a second one for "stuff happens"...

I've only dealt once with Morris, and in my experience the deal was fast and without issues. Your mileage may vary of course.

I purchased a Mark (Moki) 2.10 from Morris just before Xmas of 05 and had no problems, shipping was fast.
Let's hope they get all the little details right in the DD kit. The site stated that they are taking orders for a spring shipment.
Rudeboy, please let us know how the kit looks and when you get it.

Humm, I didn't see a clipped wing version listed. It's easy to modify the stock kit.

i'm going to order one anyway, and see what happens... i fly with Jeff Gilbert, and he said DD is working something out with Morris, but he was kinda surprized, but not shocked when i told him it was already on the morris website. this was just last sunday. I think morris is trying to stir up some chatter about the dust being available again, and see what happens. On another note, Jeff has a Giant Dust that is going to get a gas 4 stroker! i will try to get some pics of any of the giant dusts he's got, they are AWESOME!

I wonder if anyone else out there has really big deltas... i may have to build one!


oh, yeah, no clipped wing ... sorry guys,, I GOT THE LAST ONE!!!
