    RE: Has TopFlite gone nuts with the price??

    I think they discontinued the Sea Fury last Spring before they raised the kit prices.

    If there are any of these kits you may have been planning on getting, you can still get them from Omni (Tower) through Ebay. They still have them at the old prices with free shipping but I'll bet...

    RE: Top Flite Sea Fury kit

    Oh boy, I hate to see another TF kit go. It's a long shot, but we can only hope they'll replace it with another kit. Yeah yeah, I'm dreaming!

    Chad... Please let me know if or when you can make a second canopy and send me a PM. Let me know the cost and I'll get the funds right over to you either by PayPal or mail.

    Thanks,

    Thanks guys! I think I'll do a little of both suggestions. I'll get the canopy from IMP, since this company is new to me and I'd like to try them out. It looks like their D9 is a touch larger, but...
