Well guys I'm in beautiful Lakeland FL at FloridavJets and I must say its been a great day so far. The new Tornado V3 is incredible Henry is doing an outstanding job flying the airplane. I must say that the plane is ballistic with the Rabbit 100 I cant believe the performance of this plane. I laugh ever time Henry goes up and Bob Violette is staring at this airplane fly as Henry is side by side with his Bandit. If looks could kill Henry wold not be here lol. Team Modellbau great Job.

P.S, the new Scorpion is awesome SKS was all over Henry flying that thing.

We are also up here with about 10 of our boys from down south and Florida Jets is great. I agree the Modellbau Team is tearing up the sky they are flying there butt off. Henry is really putting the new Tornado through its paces that new V3 is incredible. The Scorpion is a aviation design ARF that was redesigned by the Modellbau gang. I was told that all of Aviation Design kits are now offered by Modellbau and are also being made by a new factory in the Czech Republic. Henry has really put on a great show with that new bird, excellent job Henry very nice flying

Unfortunately the planes are a bit delayed. We are having a hell of a time painting at my factory because it has not stopped raining so the humidity is very bad. We are catching up with production and will have them soon. Sorry for the delay.

That sucks to hear but I rather it be correct than get a plane that has some issues. Anyway few questions I saw your new V3 demo model fly at Florida Jets, first of all very very impressive it looks like it is built like a rock. Can you post some pictures of the internals of the booms and wing so we can see what improvements you have made? Also can you compile a list of servos used?

Henry I was very impressed with the new V3 a lot of planes had problems with gear but not once did one of your Tornados break stupid question but why? I know you and your pilots are very good but can we realistically expect the production models to be that strong? Thanks in advance for the answers by the way the Freedom looked sick that thing was gigantic.

Well the Servo's that I recommend for this airplane if you are using a 17lb thrust turbine or greater are Hitec Digitals

Rudder- 2x HS5245MG
Elevators-2x HS5245MG
Ail and Flaps- 4x HS5645MG
Nose Wheel- 1x HS645MG
retract servo-1x HS311

Below are some pics of the internals of the booms and wings, so you can see that this plane is built much different than the V1 or V2 as for PIcs of us at Fl Jets sorry but I was busy flying so I could not take any. But there are some in the FL jets thread of the Scorpion and I am sure we will be all over the SKS Video.

Nor we are not making the kits we are using a very high quality factory in the Czech republic. We are selling the full line of Aviation Design exclusively in North and South America. I have Falcon 7x, F117, Super Scorpions in stock the rest of the kits will be avialable in May.

Wow!!!... If they're priced anything like your other kits, this is the best news I've seen in this hobby for a long time. AD kits fly awesome!!! Congrats dude, can't wait to see them!

Hey David I think Henry missed this part of your post? but I rent a bay from Bill and see him most days so I can tell you that the struts have new reinforcement added for V3. Florida Jets
was the first trials with these and reports so far are very positive. And yes all the production units will be the same.

Thanks chuck Iissed that one yes we have made significant changes in the new V3 gear also we have made very large changes in the wing design. Even if the gear was rock sold the wing would be the weak link but in this case it is not. the wing is a rock. It has tons of Carbon fiber and double ply every were. Oh yea it was also because I an awesome pilot lol
