Default New Chip Hyde Profile!!!

I saw the ad for the profile and man, I think I have to have one [X(]

anyone else the ad here? Can be on Chip's site as well here:

the contest is to name the plane and im sure it will be available early next year. The specs looks decent on it and I like the look. Hope it isnt too $$$

Cover scheme looks like some 6 year old boys bedroom wallpaper. I'm sure it's a good flying ARF.

I think the covering can get tossed out as well. I like 80'' at 5 1/2 lps getting lighter ? must be the glue they forgot to put in the fuse to hold it together.

I had to do a double take on the weight. The description says the weight is "as pictured." So that weight is sans wheels, engine and electronics.

After I made the post I went back and saw it as well. It must be the new marketing ways to get us all to buy one. Nice to see someone as well known as him marketing it . I hope it flies good maybe a Chip Bi plane profile down the road. I like to see more profiles at my club. Sometimes it feel when I am flying 3-D planes- (profiles) I alienate some the war birds guys. If they could just try one maybe they will switch over to where the fun is. I hope I didn't open a can of worms with that statement remember this is the Fun Flying planes form.

What a coincidence...DiabloKid and I are tripping all over each other here at RCU...we both have/had Vectorflight planes, OMP profiles, and have or are researching Cap-x, Qq Yak, etc. etc. etc. We'veostd back and forth for months now... here we go again!

I'm choosing a plane for my new OS 1.60FX...hence the interest in Cap-x, Qq Yak, and others. However, I've been having SOOO MUCH fun flying my Katana Profile from OMP that I'm considering the Giant Arfs (79 and 80 inch) OMP Yak and Edge profile ARFs. Seems like some folks are having "issues" with the Aeroworks Arf... so I'll likely pass on that one.

Then imagine my surprise...I'm on Chip's websight drooling over the Cap-X and I see a Giant Profile ARF...WOW!

Anxious to see some video of Chip wringing out a prototype.

Any other info out there?
