We can only put a suggestion in to the new products committee. They decide if the market's going to demand enough to make a production run viable.

For what's it is worth I would order one or an Arrow II kit.

We've had requests to reprise those kits, but not enough to give the product people encouragement.

Here's some encouragement: [To bring back the Beechcraft Bonanza or Top Flite Arrow]

I started this kit: Top Flite 1/5th scale Bonanza in 2004. I've plugged away building ever since. I've lived in 6 different states, never once did I ever consider throwing this kit away because I absolutely love the Bonanza. When I see an un-opened Top Flite Bonanza kit for sale, it often is listed for 600.00 dollars and up.

If you have a customer base that wants particular models return, especially those who are willing to pay top dollar, why wouldn't the product people bring those kits back? Basic market research could prove whether or not your customers would purchase them. Since I've seen people pay 3x and more for an un-opened kit, that's pretty compelling evidence the re-release would be successful.
