Default Condor Hobbies Flying Machine

Condor Hobbies is the ONLY licensed supplier of this incredible 40G maneuvering aircraft. Don Muddiman’s brilliant innovation and contribution to the RC world has finally come full circle with the first ARF kit of the Flying Machine since its design in 1981.

In 1983 Don Muddiman of the Cloud Dancers Air Show Team was looking for an aircraft that would push him to his limits. If you’ve ever seen the Cloud Dancers International Air Show Team perform, then you’ve seen the amazing, unreal, aerial magic of this incredible RC Aircraft.Most planes would self-destruct at 40Gs but the Flying Machine will perform a series of snaps so fast that it will appear to be a blur. For the typical Sunday Flyer, reducing the control throws will turn the Flying Machine into a well behaved sport flyer. Either way, you’ll never be bored!

Currently the FM is in the production phase and the first orders will be shipped to our Pre-Order Registered customers prior to public release.
Registration does not require payment until the FM is ready to ship and all Pre-Order Registers will be sent an order payment request upon shipping confirmation.
Pricing will be between $189-$199 depending on final cost.

You can register for a pre-order at http://www.iwantmyfm.com/
