The Arf composite construction can be found on page one of the thread,.....it's a composite sandwich of balsa, carbon fiber,..etc.
As soon as mine gets here I will post some photos for everyone. If someone already has one of the new ARF composite's, perhaps we could get some detailed photos.

Well I checked the sites,..............www.fliton.com is still up and running. The www.flitonstore.com is probably being converted or upgraded as it indicates to the new site.

Alex sent me some concepts photos for the new web page,...www.flitoncompetition.com a few weeks ago,..I am guessing that's what's going on. The e-mail,...don't know,...he always responds back, sometimes quickly,...sometimes in a few days?[8D]

I hope all is well.

Unfortunately Alex had trouble last weekend at the contest and was unable to fly it during the contest. I believe Troy flew the plane on Friday and was happy with it - I'm going on 2nd hand information here. I do know that several are being built and should be flying VERY soon.

It's easy to build. Goes quickly. I'm just waiting on parts to finish up. Should have a flight report next week.
