Is the image in the website a real one of the plane or a conceptual one?

The image on the website is of our Demo plane. We will have pictures of the production model on Sunday. It is the same except for a couple of decals.

Interesting choice.

Modellabau-Pollack have ignored emails from me in the past - I personally wouldn't buy anything from them. Maybe I have just been unlucky.

Thank you for the heads up, that is one of the reason that I mentioned to please contact us directly for any issues with our product. I cannot control how are dealers conduct business but I can control how my product is sold.If our dealers cant do the job then we will always step up and get things handled. I have always welcomed calls, emails, smoke signals etc... I always answer emails and pick up the phone even after store hours. So please de not feel like we will not support our product. I rather stop selling RC products than give crappy customer service.

Patience said the Buddhist monk to bruce lee patience LOL. We will have our manual complete by the end of the week and further pictures as well, flight video to follow if the weather holds up. Christmas is coming and im feeling generous, the turbine deal has gotten better and will be announced Nov. 18.

Ok a few questions as it does bear a STRIKING resemblance to the Falcon (don't worry I don't give a crap about that), but what are the dimensions etc and AUW dry say with something like a P60SE or equivalent. Details guys! Need details! I apologize if I missed you posting those stats but I didn't see them. Looks really great so far. I trust that this plane is being built with GRASS runways in mind?

The aircraft does look like the Flacon 120 and goes together pretty much the same with out all the extra work of making it stronger for a turbine and has several changes to the structure, airfoil and flying characteristics. Like I have mentioned in my previous posts the wings and stabilizer are fully sheeted and strengthened for turbine use. The wings root has the same airfoil as the falcon at the wing root but changes towards the tips for better stall capability. The elevator and booms have been modified with double screws on each side which serve as mini spars since the booms and elevator get glued and are one piece. The interior of the fuselage is completely different as to accommodate our fuel tank . You can see the dimensions of the plane at http://modellbauusa.com/Tornado.html

The plane was made to fly with the P60SE that is what we are packaging it with, and ours weighs in at 13.5lb with out fuel.

So far so good guys. All I need for myself personally is a video of your exact setup you are selling. Retracts/Servo's etc in action. Preferably off a grass runway. But all in all I'm sold.

We don't want to tick anybody off. On the contrary we want everybody to happy and enjoy, as well as open up the opportunity for the non-jet flyers the excitement and pleasure of having a turbine

Can you also answer if all the control surfaces will come pre-hinged? That is vital to me as it's the least favorite part of builds. I would assume yes but it's better to get it straight from you guys. And more important...what size fuel tank are you including with the plane? How many Oz's not including UAT.
