It is a good looking airframe, a refreshed Skymaster Dragon with some really good paint schemes. Good value for a 160 class too.

Good luck to the team marketing/selling this.

I'm sure you'll ignore the cynics.

Ignor customers. Oh yes that will probably be the case. Sort of par for the course

Yes a good airframe but very expensive at the price being asked

Ignore Dennis's posts using a username similar to mine with a full stop at the end. It is not me[:@]

Dennis, that is a new low. Let's hope we don't ever meet (and I do know where you fly from).

Thank you David and yes we will ignore the critics. Most of them have other agendas anyway. There's no way they can judge this aircraft as I'm the only one to see the final product in the UK as far as I know.

I find it a tad creepy the way the certain posts are by the same person responding to their own posts. Very odd.

Sad; the moderators dont seem to give a crap about this forum any more. Even more pathetic is Dennis talking to himself.... Little Grapes indeed!

Installation has commenced

Servos of choice are Spektrum A6030 all round kindly donated to the project.

Anyone got a suitable Powerbox system sitting around for which I can make a reasonable offer?

Let me say a quick word here guys. I know a lot of you are frustrated by Dennis, a.k.a. Bigplumbs, littlegrapes, siclick33. and the many other usernames he has been on RCU under. Unfortunately Dennis knows what we track accounts by and he is very good at bypassing those and creating new accounts. All we can do is keep banning new accounts as he creates them and remove any posts that he makes. We apologize if we have a delay in getting to these but Dennis is a few hours ahead of most of our moderators because he is in the UK and most of our moderators are based in the US. But please bear with us as we do this. Give us a hand by reporting Dennis sightings as soon as they happen, and don't feed his troll accounts when they occur. Anybody that spots him please feel free to PM me directly with new sightings and I promise we will take care of it just as quickly as we can.

Hopefully he'll finally get tired of trying to come to a place where is definitely not wanted. It's sad really, if you ask me that he keeps trying to come back.

Yes it does, it's the large fin and wing profile. Although from the front it looks distinctly like a Hawk. These comparison will make for some pretty cool colour schemes

Took a trip down to ModellbauUK's premiss yesterday for a look around, was made very welcome and given a cup of tea to boot by one of Ian's fair maidens, what a nice man, had a good look around and was very impressed with the Aurora, for those who think the price is too much, I paid nearly the same for a telescope case, just the case without the contents.

Difficult to see under fluorescent lighting, but the waves you can normally see in composite's flat surfaces seem to be missing, I would go as far to say the moulding seems to be every bit as good as any of my CARF's.

Pitty it is not available without the massive case as this will take up as much room as the plane when the plane is out of it

The airframe will fit inside the case once completed therefore you can use the case to transport the Aurora to your flying site without the fear of hanger rash, to me it looks a big improvement on loading into the car unprotected.
