Some progress, but they started on the wrong kits!

Please note the total absence of phone number, address or email …..but there are provisions for placing an order. It could be like this because the site is new, but this sets off all my alarm bells.

What the H%&* is that thing with a fuselage shaped like a cigar box?
Those deltas with landing gear.....the owners should be horse-whipped
Good to see the DDs live on, they are part of what really made sport flying fun again for me...them and 3D profiles.

Yup and you win CP!
I was wondering who would pickup on the LG.
Looks like it belongs on a Lazy Bee.
These folks don't seem to have a clue of what they are going to be selling.
Did you notice the winglets on the DD?................Why?

I think they think that they know what will sell. Maybe they just got done force feeding a kid through college to get a degree in marketing and this is the end result?
The trouble with selling Diamond Dust kits to make a living would be selling a product to a market that mostly doesn't like to build. It is also the easiest plane for any scratch builder to bootleg.
An ARF DD sounds pretty scary, what happens when the hot glue fails at 150 mph! [X(]

If this plane has any chance at succeeding long term, they will have to invest in advertising and hitting all the key airshows for demos.

The olive green plane in the photo -

with the 4c engine, giant HD dural landing gear and the big balloon tires....

reminds me of an Alaskan bush plane
