Default Clipped wing DD

Diamond Dust R/C has a new Dust. It's a clipped wing version with a 30" wingspan, slightly thinner profile and a more swept back leading edge. I put a Quickee-Jett 40 on mine, It's a blurr.

Flooredcobra:
Call Jeff Gilbert from Archer Fla. PH 352-486-2159.
I picked mine up last week and got some good tips
at the Archer Flying field. Jeff does a great job on the
Dust. He even sells a neat plane bag to carry it around in.
I got the American Flag verson.

OK great thanks for the info.

Just kind of laughing to myself now, they managed to make a $50 plane into a $150 plane now. I am not quite sure how it would be a arf or arc version. The way the dust is already there is nothing to it.

Do they have a website with some pics of how it looks or do you just have to only order it?

OK, its on the order form, didn't think to look there, but no pics and someone please update that lill rippy pic.
150 for a Dust is a scandal, but for an Outlaw too! theres nothing exotic in there, mine cost about 20 quid in wood and two evenings work. maybe that price includes an engine too. you can get Cougar ARTFs for that, ok their built by chinese children, but theres a lot more work in one of them.
Then again.. Cougar, mass market, factory produced... Dust and Outlaw probably one guy building one a day.

A place called wilson hobbies had the outlaw built for 150-155 shipped. I forgot which one but he does a very nice job. I will try and locate his e-mail.
