Yep... I like the blue with the Italy color stripe.

Is there a USA distributor and is there a price yet?

I am glad to announce that Elite Aerosports will be distributing the NEW Rebel along with all the other Pirroti models in the Americas.
I have been really looking forward to this Rebel. If it flys anything like its predecessors it will be a hit.

pricing: 3599.99 includes:

Landing gears
S.S. tailpipe
Fuel Tank




My first one arrives in a couple of weeks. I will post pics along with build, and flight testing.


Regards,
Pablo

Pablo,
That's a great looking model, can't wait to see one of your demo flights.

Perfect size for a Jet Central Rabbit 100, or for some extra push a Jet Central Cheetah

The green Lamborghini scheme is awesome. Remove the Rebel label and add Lamborghini as the label. I hope the green is a true Verde Ithaca Green that Lamborghini uses and I will be all over this plane.

It' s a cool jet, but I just don't understand why all these kits are so darn expensive?? The average guy just can't afford them.

Is that the solid color or the multi color paint?

Pirotti makes nice models, I have the tuono, nice and stable, I was hoping Peter from Altecare would pick up there line.

$3600 painted with gear is comparable to an Ultra Flash, but this is Italian vs Thailand so the quality should be better.

Painted in mold white or 1-2 color are the same price.
Graphics packages will cost about $49

I have owned 9 comp-arf aircraft, here the most common issues with Composite arf planes:

1, Glue not fully applied to formers, joints and other areas properly, this happens all to common, Com-arf uses this fiberglass/epoxy mix that is very brittle and has a tendency to chip away, many times I have seen an arf with partially missing glue, sometimes its easy to fix, sometimes not. I was about to get the skygate hawk, but then i saw one in person... F that... compared to the perfect seams of the tomahawk, no way I'll save up for the tomahawk (and pay $250.00 just for the packing boxes )

2, Oversize servo holes or sometimes missing, one of the biggest pains is composite arf stubbornness with oversized servo mounting holes, they claim there CNC machine can't do anything smaller than 2mm (which is crap because 1mm bits are readily available every where), so you are forced you to use there fat over-sized philips screws for mounting servos. If you aren't using JR servos well than tuff because the servo pocket and mounting screws are only sized for 8711 servos and are too big for hitech/futaba. Common sense would say, make the servo pocket fit futaba/Hitec and allow the modeler to enlarge if they need to put in a bigger servo. I have also had planes where the servo holes were missing, wouldn't be so bad if they were all missing (as I usually need to fill them and make new ones for hitech/futaba servos) but in this case, you have 1 out of the 4 missing so its just added work.

3, Careless Design, Composite-Arf frequently has these insane building techniques and some of these aren't even explained int he manual: case in point the Servos on the Carf P-47, the instructions say you have to cut a screw driver, add a brass rod about 24" and then re- braze where by extended the screw driver it to install servos... WHAT?? Don't even get me started on the composite arf 3.0meter yak, that's double hellish. On jets like the comp-arf Ultra Lightning, installing the Flap servo is IMPOSSIBLE without drilling a hole in the rib, the instructions (which haven't been updated form the original lightning) say ohh just try to install screws at a 35 degree angle, yeah just magically do that...
On my hangar 9 yak (also built by CARF, you have to saw out a 4mm think wood brace just to put the elevators in, but don't worry they still put a BS QC sticker saying someone reviewed it).

4, Paint seams on all jets is clearly visible, ok maybe not so bad, but every composite arf plane that I have had painted form the factory has this nice snot colored seam on the fuse and the wings, NICE...

5, Utter ***** 3mm linkages, these are the worst, looks like pot metal pushed through a press, the 3mm rods that carf gives you bend so easily they are worse than the 4-40 rod harden rods that hangar 9 gives you on there 40 sized planes, expect to spend another 30-40 on Steal turnbuckles or other stronger hardware to fix.

There are other issues but those are more specific to each individual aircraft; the above is pretty generic across all of there air frames.

WITH THIS IN MIND, I still think overall Composite Arf makes a great product for good value and that is why I have so many of there planes and I will continue to buy Composite Arf in the future. Compared to other manufacturers there support network is good, Andy Kane is an excellent rep and the overall customer service has been great. The pricing is also very good, slightly more than the Cheap Chinese stuff, but certainly not has high as some premium European companies. Lastly, they are proven air frames so you don't have to worry about them failing out of the sky and if they do they fix these issues very quickly.

So when an Italian made kit comes out, I am expecting to be AT LEAST as good as Composite Arf Plus more, meaning I don't want to see issues that are known with Carf, especially when it priced higher than comp-arf. So hopefully the rebel will have:

1) Proper and clean glue joints (just like my touno)
2) Allow support for all types of servos which can be enlarged to fit JR.
3) No crazy building process and easy access servo doors
4) No paint seams from the mold
5) Good solid hardware.
