Hi
I saw it live and flying at Jetpower. Had a small problem with node gear and couldn't turn.

It is pretty amazing piece of engineering and artwork but fon't get me wrong just away in size and from a logistic point of view it is a bit crazy to carry and transport. Fuel needs are pretty huge also. You better put the fuel jig inside the plane to make 1 flight

Costwise should be 4x times more than my actual TD 1/3.5 scale hawk. Personaly I understand why manufacturers want to produce these machines, because they can charge pretty astronomic prices, but where will it end???? We are talking about more than 50K for a model airplane and I am affraid that if modelers or manufacturers don't know where to stop, somebody outside the hobby will and it won't be nice when it happens..... just a thought

Great machine and really enjoy to watch the 2 flights it did

Regards

Nuno

A lot of these models were conceived in the days of free money, things are getting tighter very quickly globally and you could see a lot of stock around at big haircuts.

Also exchange and interest are all over the place and that will also have an impact.

The old saying "want to make 100k in the RC business, start with 250k"
