Henry

What is the delivery situation on the V3 upgrade for the V2 that I have on order? I would like to take the restrictions off my Rabbit 100!

The airplanes are beginning to ship out today and continuing through next week. They are being shipped out in the order they were placed. You will be emailed a tracking number when it leaves. Agian there are over 200 airplanes shipping out for all customers in the US and Canada. I am leaving to Dubai on Buisness for 1 week today so if you need to contact me please send me an email.

Also I was made aware that some of you have sent Justin nasty emails asking why he has gotten an airplane first and it is very simple he picked one up directly at my factory like a couple other people. There is no need to send nasty emails to a fellow RC friend because he got his plane before you did.

WOW. i hate to get a thread off track, but really..... as if some people would actually get nasty with a fellow modeler over a frigging model airplane. you people (whomever sent the emails) should be ASHAMED of yourselves!!!!!! this hobby is about enjoying model aviation and building friendships. you people need a reality check and need to grow the hell up!

**** Besides, if you actually have been following this thread, you would know that he went to the factory to pick it up because it says so on page 85 of this thread!!!!

let me say this, i thought i would post vid to HELP anyone that needed it because when i built my first one thier wasnt anything really out there so that i could see what they did. Now, i do not represent modellbau, nor do i get paid from them, and since i have posted the new v3 i get about 3-5 emails a day just asking questions about how i did this or that. a hand full of people ive even given out my number so they could talk with me in person to help. But the nasty emails for everything to...calling me a socialist, *******, and even one guy in his mind thought that because i had one and he didnt that somehow i had HIS jet and was gonna call Henry and ask for one free and his money back. one email called me a socialist becaue he viewed henry as only giving out ready v3 to his FRIENDS...Well i thought that was just funny!!!!
SO for the guys that emailed me the nasty emails, tomm i will post MY v3 with pic as it is finished and flown...will even post vid of it flying if i can get around to it...
Wanna say thanks to Henry for the kind words and i must say Henry is an outstanding person to deal with and anyone wanna same something different about him can email me and will tell you otherwise.

Modelers in Brazil can't wait for the plane too, here are some pictures of the V2 they have modified, some great schemes out there!
The Black was suppose to be a black bunny just like my F4 but its really hard to see so we changed to the Breitling Scheme, now its in the process of installing the smoke system, its powered by a Jet Central Rabbit and stock plane V2, no reinforcements. It reaches 310Km/h. The second plane is a clients plane. Both are not painted as this procedure makes the plane very heavy.

Very Nice

So did you strip down a stock V2 and repaint the fuselage and cover the wings?

The black one its one of our demos, this one I ordered without covering and paint so we could do it light, the other one the customer had to strip the old covering and paint. On both the fuselage is painted but wings are covered otherwise covering everything would become very heavy. They both fly awesome, very light planes. Will post pictures when the smoke system is ready.

The replacement canopy that Henry has is much better, is a clear canopy, you have to paint it but the quality is the same as the canopies from Comp-ARF. Just drop him an email and he will take care of you.

Okay Henry,
Not to rush you [X(] but now that the first batch is shipping and sold any ideas on the eta of the second? Will there be one for me on the waiting list? Sorry, you guys are doing a excellent job, just desperate wishful thinking.

Yay got mine today it really is a beautiful kit. I got a yellow one this time and I dont regret it at all. The finish is awesome and it looks like it is built like a tank. Tons of Carbon Fiber everywere. The booms are rock solid and the wings look sweet. I bought the new gear and they are also beautiful. The struts look to be powdercoated and the wheels look like they found were BVM makes there's becuase the are identical. Henry very nice job excellent work I cant wait for the F16.
