Hello Speed Freaks.
Trying to get my hands on a Diamond Dust or Whiplash but having no success. What's the story with these two makes. With the demise of the Lanier Shrike line I'm looking for substitutions. Any recommendations? Thanks Dave.

The DD is back? Diamonddustrc website still says unavailable except for the featherduster kits and ARF's. The good part is that the website has an update on it with a date of the update. That's better than looking at a site that you have no clue is still updated.

Hey Evan, somone on these boards was looking to put floats on a speedplane recently. I told them to look you up.

That's been on the Morris site for years and years (see the botom - this product added in 2002). If that's going to materialize, then it has to change from "taking pre orders" to reading "in stock"...

I hear Jeff is making an ARF DD... The person did ask, I think that my scratch build scared him away, people all want ARFs now...

Work for what? It, the Outlaw, is not a speed plane like the DD or Whip. It's quick but it's really an acrobat/ fun flying plane.

Oh ok my mistake sorry, they were making it sound like alot more of a speed plane on FG and I thought the OP was just looking for a fast delta....

Ah, work for the OP... sorry I didn't catch that's what you meant. It may work for what he wants but the Outlaw is really not meant just for speed....
