I can't find it either?? Mauro is pretty active on FB. Maybe he found it difficult to keep the site up to date, or maybe they are working on a new website. Will have to wait and see I guess.

I believe pricing is due to be confirmed at or before Jetpower show - 15/16/17th of September, so not long to wait.

Seems that at the moment the Pirotti Models website is down, but they have confirmed some resellers who will sell the Rebel Hot on their FB page. Currently showing as:

Elite Aerosports - USA
UL Team Model - Switzerland
TZ Import - Scandinavia
Tiltoys - Central and Southern Italy
Top Jets - Israel
Sunbell Jet Team - UAE
LT Model - Austria
Rebel Jets - Australia

Maybe more to come??

Geoff,
the K70 because I already ordered two of them (they look so cute, already have 3 P20SX but would like something a little bigger), one for another project, and then I had 1 spare (which I now don't have any more )

For a proven platform and unbeatable European quality, you could be right but we'll see.

Like big planes, but would be nice have something that's easy on the back. Hope this one is priced below $2000 usd.

The other 2 sizes don't compete in the price range.

The air intakes are very aesthetic - the European design & manufacture are far superior to the Asian stuff ....

Looks great! I'm considering this one against the carf joker, but this one looks better for grass field ops.

Any news regarding pricing?
