    RE: The Aurora Project Announced

    Here's a link to factory flight video.

    Not really put through it's paces but I'm sure every one would like to see the model in the air.

    Large file so be aware of data charges

    I agree

    It's the tailplane angle from the front.

    RE: The Aurora Project Announced



    Reading several posts I was under the impression that the Modellbau group for want of a better word were about bringing in models at the cheaper end of the market to help those getting into the turbine world. This model with a finished price tag of around £7000 seems to be a bit of a departure from what I thought was that basic principal

    Just my 2 Cents worth

    £7000


    The £7000 I quoted is what I would estimate it will be finished once you have bought the turbine and all the other bits and bobs. Am I not correct that this would be the approx ready to fly cost


    Whoops I think I caught that one before you finished your edit

    I wonder who that might be Mike!!

    Just for the record ModellbauUK is not associated with any other company, we import aircraft that we feel should be brought to the attention of the UK and European markets but for one reason or another have been turned away by the other traders. As with the Tornado we feel that it would have been a shame not to give the Aurora a chance to succeed when you consider how much effort Mohammed and Smitty have devoted to the project only to have the rug pulled out from underneath them at the last minute.

    i for one will do everything I can do to make the Aurora a success especially when you consider their other projects that are in the pipipeline. This doesn't only apply to imports but also UK manufacturers who have suddenly had the demand for their products drop to zero as there are cheaper alternatives from overseas, quality then suffers.

    RE: The Aurora Project Announced

    Why in the world would any body spend £7000 on a model if you can buy a proven aircraft like the Ultra Lightning or the Ultra Bandit. This is just absurd. This is just another Chinese model that is made to look nice. If any body thinks that it is any different you are smoken some of the good stuff. If this model was worth anything Al's hobbies would have been all over it not a person with no sales or credibility.

    RE: The Aurora Project Announced

    The model is actually made in Qatar, not China, and I think Lotus Composites have a great deal of credibility. Just my perception. I don't know why others didn't take the Aurora. I can only presume that the market is pretty saturated with good quality aircraft from the well established manufacturers so for a new manufacturer to break into this market is very difficult. Especially in the current economic climate when cash is tight it is alway best to stick with what we know best, it's called Comfort Zoning

    I feel that the price of the Aurora is very competive when you consider the build and finish quality. Please don't judge the model until you have actually seen one up close, seen it fly or flown one yourself.

    For modellers who want a large jet but do not want a ballistic missile designed to break the sound barrier the Aurora fits the bill.

    It's also just that bit different from the norm to make it appealing.

    and a bit cheeky (Cat & Mouse Scheme)

    Probably just voicing ones opinion which I thought RCU was about. I would also have thought that companies launching a new product would want to know what people think. Many on these boards seem scared to give their true views and therefore people could make investments in stock based on the positive comments and not actually learn the truth. I see that ModellbauUK is still trying to sell an MB339 and a K80. I think he only bought 8 of these some 2 years ago and still has stock.

    What has that got to do with you, you seem to like poking your nose into other peoples business!

    Just stating what I see as the facts. Not poking a nose i when the person spreads their business all over the net. Oh and perhaps you should learn how to use the quote button it looks like you typed all the above.

    So does this model have a connection with Lotus Composites (i.e. the car company)?

    This is Dennis again. I recognise his punctuation.

    Just a bit of advice don't rise and retaliate. Accept he has the right to pass judgement and comment. Even if it is completely incorrect. I know my feelings about this type of comment so choose to ignore them or set the record straight with correct information.

    Let's not muddy this thread and concentrate on the Aurora. There really is nothing bad to say about it, unless you are 100% sure of any negative comments, so please bare this in mind

    Thanks

    RE: The Aurora Project Announced

    Looks very cool! To reply to someone earlier - ppl would be interested in this for the same reason the Futura, Hawks and Viper Jets are so popular = graceful constant speed pattern maneuvers which last longer on a flyby because you're not eating up real estate at 200mph.
    Congrats to all involved and best wishes for a successful rollout!
