If it flies as good as Mariano Gostanian designed Austral it will be a winner. But, has anyone flown this plane? Is it designed just for upper class pattern?

It is Mariano's design, the newest and produced by CA. Outstanding quality.

Lewis, I heard that there was going to be a V2 of the Zonda hitting the shores this year. Doesn't look like F3AU has it yet. Maybe Mike knows??? The guys I know flying them think it is the best plane out there. They have had a couple of issues with the tail section, but nothing that couldn't be fixed with Hysol....

Thank you
I just can't find much info on the web on anyone flying one
I kind of liked the Retro scheme (sold out) that Mike had up on the website
Will wait to see if there is a v2 this year

Bought a Zonda.
https://www.f3aunlimited.com/ca-mode...tarotto-scheme
(no idea who Andreas Pantarotto is ... just thought the plane was pretty in that color scheme)

Will have a Plettenberg Advance 30-10, 3 blade prop, Hacker Ditex servos all around, Mezon ESC and Jeti CB100 / R3.
Revoc will be making a set of wing and tail bags in custom graphics (to match the scheme on the plane ... first time trying those, I always used to just get solid color)
