Default New Jets 2022?

Iíve not posted in long time. Usually ever year I post new jets coming but since pandemic for obvious reasons not much new has come out. Skymaster announced large F14 and F15 two years ago and been no news since and Anton hasnít posted on RCU in years.
T one hasnít had anything new in a long time and BVM and Jetlegend the same.

Has anyone heard anything from any of them about new jets to come in future? Hopefully all the companies are doing fine

Hell, you can't even get a current kit unless you wait 8-10 months.

yeah I see him post on there but itís mainly just customer jets rather than development but as I say itís been tough couple years.
just before people reply the obviousÖ Iím not complaining. Itís more just update of how the manufacturers are doing just cause as weíve seen thereís been long wait times and no new jets so obviously with issues with pandemic, shipping costs etc itís gonna have a big effect but hopefully they will be doing ok

Both CARF and BVM have posted large scale F-4's. I think somebody needs to move over to FB for news. We're some of the few left that even comes to this page.

Can you share the post regarding the large BVM F-4? Was it on a private FB page perhaps? Maybe I missed it. Thanks!

Tons of new jets coming in 2022. But mainly big toys (3M+)
Demand is at an all time high and even with container prices being 4 times (air freight appx ~$3000.00 per airframe) - the manufacturers cannot keep up with demand.
SM , PilotRC , CARF , TOPRC, etc - all have big toys coming.
Average wait time is 6-9 months without any delays...

All chatter in on FB

The biggest paradox of this is that some many guys asking for new jet models and they have so many jest that they purchased for years ago and never even started to assembling them , usually jet goes off the box checked for shipping blemishes and goes back to the box , than purchase goes deeper servos, accessories turbine and everything is waiting for the special day to install all the equipment. And than new jet is showing by the door and the same sequence goes on. I know those individuals who are doing this type of hobby, and Iím wondering if thatís normal or maybe this is some kind of syndrome?. Just my observation.

Toprc have a L-39 and F-4 coming soon, i'm guessing like most Toprc jets they will be well priced and quality will be sufficient for the cost.
Id love to see more on the Carf f-4!!

I wish someone would do a reasonably sized (2.2 meter range), A6 Intruder for single or twin!

That is my favorite jet but you rarely see them modeled, I think it's because of the difficulty in designing gear that works and looks reasonably scale.

Same for a Voodoo. No one models that and I wonder why.

This is very common, two types of people in the hobby "Buyers and Flyers"
If one is still working full time there is no need for more than 3 flying jets imo lol, just my thoughts take with a grain of salt
