Default World Models New Release

I just heard through the grape vine that World Models is looking into producing the Vendetta
Has anyone heard anything about this, that would be super cool as their Spitfire & Strega are a big success!

If WM is gonna keep producing Pylon Racers for us we need to keep buying their product to show them there is a market.
The Spitfire was a huge success.
The Strega is on track for the same following and is a much better looking plane
just my personal preference

The Vendetta was demo flown by RV at Speedworld and it is supper slippery, shippable, and I feel the best looking of them yet, but I am prejudice towards swept wings.
lol

Really hoping these can find their way here by the Nats timeline but it is a market driven by profit/loss economy.

We need to go buy their warbird/pylon planes and show them we appreciate them- the cost id super affordable for what is in the box- and proven on the race course.

I have flown the new vendetta a few times and it flies very well. Actually all the new ones fly well and all are capable of 170+ mph with a YS 115WS in the nose.

Would love to see them produce a Sea Fury racer of some sort.

thanks for the link. I was looking at a different site. I believe Callie Graphics has this one set up for custom graphics (?)

Yes you can get them from here if dont like the stock ones but for the strega the graphics are pretty good. Also you can strip the covering off and make other Mustangs of your choice like precious metal and others with a small canopy. The NATS is in July so you have some time to get one built up and come race with us. There will be three classes for warbirds Bronze, silver and gold.

I'm doing the 2017 Voodoo race P-51 scheme. Bought the white Strega and buying custom Callie graphics. I will start a new build thread here.

Ditto on the Sea Fury request. One of the more represented racers in full-scale Reno racing; yet least modeled due to increased (relative) difficulty of the wing design. If WM would produce one of these, I would actually purchase an ARF, rather than just scratch-build my own designs.

Saw the Vendetta fly on Friday. Very nice plane. Everything is good to go so it should only be a matter of time now.

Looking forward to seeing this one in person. It's like this: "If Richard Verano had anything to do with the development or design then you can bet it's fast and built right"!

Planebender I flew the prototype early this year a couple of time and it flies like its on rails and the two piece wing, removable stabs is a great feature for traveling. The whole structure was strong and I didn't see any wing flex when I dove it and did a full pull. When they are available I will be getting a couple of them.

Just ordered mine, should be here in about a week. I like the color scheme, should be easy to see since the top and bottom are totally different, I see a YS 115WS in my future

Hi, Airraptor, I hope to order another YS115WS, but the centrolhobbies told me: they are out stock of YS115WS. Is this engine stopped to production? When recover supply?

Vendetta update, well it went together just as smooth as can be, no issues what so ever! I have the World Models Spitfire and Strega, and I must say the Vendetta is the best of all 3. It seems to be more locked in, don't get me wrong, the Spitfire and Strega are great flying planes, I just seem to fly the Vendetta much smoother, especially in the turns. I think World Models has a real winner with the Vendetta.
I will be ordering another one as a back up as soon as I find a buyer for the Strega

How did it balance with YS? How are electric retracts holding up?

No issues with the CG, so far the retracts are holding up well. I have 2 Vendettas, a Spirfire, and a Strega, they all use the same retracts, and all are doing good. Of all the models, I feel the Spitfire seems to fly the best, it just seems to be a little more locked in.
