Default New Models for 2023

Are any new and different models coming in 2023? Specifically interested in models requiring a turbine with a minimum of 48lbs thrust.

Have you flown that F-22 yet? Its a sweet jet! Not much new this year I have seen, some really BIG stuff that probably is too heavy for the US coming.

It is not a large model but Krill has a SU 57 coming out that looks interesting.
Thanks,
Tone

Hey Fenderbean,

Have not flown the F-22 yet, loss interest in the model and move on to a larger PC-21.

I like that T one does different jets that arenít common and do different sizes for everyone. Skymaster are doing a Giant F14 and A10 but to me Skymaster are only concentrating on the high end of the hobby and not every day jet flyer anymore. They havenít done a new jet in years

Jetlegend/ BVM no idea what they are bringing out

Ugh, the F-35 needs to be a C model, I'm sure it would fly better with the bigger wing not to mention look 1000 times better.....

Yeah sure, when, where, who etc. They need a new distribution system. This pay here drop ship stuff has to change. Needs to be like it used to be, itís instant gratification, no 12 weeks, 20 weeks wait for this, that. Change the practice or get out of the business.

Not defending them but a lot of it is out of their control, these days most of them are made to order since they are not sitting on every jet they offer. We have seen this many times, a Rep orders a $10K jet, has some options based on the customers asks. Few months go by and Rep reaches out to the buyer telling him his jet is ready to ship and requires payment, buyer says he's changed his mind and no longer wants the jet. Then what? Supply chain, labor, inflation and shipping and all challenges not just with RC jets but with anything that comes out of China these days. The way things used to be is a thing of the past, so you have 2 options either accept it or build it yourself. I don't like it anymore than you do but it is what it is today.

"Scratching head" What is the issue? T-1? I have ordered two jets from them since May and all took less than about 6 weeks to arrive in good order. I also ordered two skymaster jets that have taken substantially less times than before and shipping was less than I paid before covid?
This problems with cost of shipping a material delays is not the model producer, last year I had to send two boxes of 50-60 tubes of hysol over across the pond so they could manufacture jets. The world imploded from COVID, even if COVID goes away the supply chain issues will take years to recover and don't forget there are places that produce things that may no longer be able to because of wars

You don’t like the method then look else where….to me it makes 100% sense…too many schemes and options.

I agree, the trade off is pretty much any scheme and options you want on almost any plane you want.

I will say I just took a look at a friends new PNP T1 sport jet and wow, they have really got it dialed in. The finish was absolutely perfect more so than the three T1ís Iíve had in the past. If they can consistently put out that quality of a product with the color scheme and options I want then a reasonable wait is worth it IMO.

Just an example of a company with capital. BVM only requires 50% down on order. Then, upon shipping the rest. Itís just a better business practice. Great service also and local to me here in Florida the freedom state.

Hi Albert,

Before you jump on how we run our business, we are looking for a financial partner like yourself, let me break it down for you on the kits we carry:
Skymaster has 27 kits
X-treme has 19 kits
T-One has 14 kits
JMB Jets has 6 kits
Total kits= 66
Lets be conservative and only order 10 color schemes per kit for a total of 660 kits and lets hope we pick the kits the guys want, as you know T-one alone offers 31 + color schemes on all the sport jets and not to mention they will paint any scale scheme you find, but lets keep it real.
Lets be conservative and say the cost of each kit is $4,000.00 average, obviously the small sport jets are much less but we need to order all the larger scale jets to keep everyone happy so I think a $4K average cost should do.
660 kits X $4K = $2.6M
Now we have to get them here. Our last container cost was $52,000 and I would guess at least 6 containers should cover us, so we need another $312,000.00

I can send you our banking info for you to send a cool $3m
Wait, I forgot, we are going to need a VERY LARGE WAREHOUSE for this many kits so maybe toss in another $500K.
OOPS, lets not forget we are going to need employees, so maybe send another $250k
Total wire transfer is only $4,062,000.00

Reality sucks and when I am 1 guy running the day to day business while working a regular job because certain guys want to cry the kits cost too much and I try to keep the prices affordable. I can't do this full time and chase payments down for every order and I won't hire people to chase the money. When T-one and JMB jets deliver their kits in 10 weeks or less, you can pay in full, that's why I set up an E-Commerce site, to keep things easy and the costs down. Skymaster orders that take up to 6 mo or longer I don't mind taking a down payment.

Bottom line is these threads were designed to help fellow modelers out and have constructive discussions, not designed for guys to bash others. If you think you can run a business better, step up and show everyone how it is done, other wise keep your comments to yourself! This thread was a simple question as to what has anyone heard that is new coming out and you always seem to have negative opinions about everything.

Oh, and if I remember right, not only did buy 1, T1 from us you bought 2 T-1's and they were delivered in the time frame I told you, so don't come on here trashing us about my business practices? Really...

Cheers Everyone,

Dirk

50% deposit is a good way to take an order for a model jet, as its far too easy to cancel and change your mind if there is no deposit required.

A productís lead time is the amount of time it takes for a customer to receive a good or service once itís been ordered. Lead times also have to be taken into account when a company is forecasting demand. Demand planning is the process of estimating how much of a good or service customers will buy from you. If youíre a producer of a product, this will affect not only the amount of goods and services you have to produce but also the materials you must purchase to make them. In this particular case the materials are probably available but either the orders are lacking or they are being hampered by other interactions. Shipping costs are a big issue. Labor not a factor in China. Are there kits made sitting awaiting painting? Some modelers like to paint. I am one of them, I like a blank canvas. Regardless, itís my choice either you have it or you donít.
itís always a pleasure talking to you. Remember, I am disappointed because I canít buy your products. Itís not that I wonít. So just think about that. Let me know when you have a Hawk ready to paint with a nice discount. I donít like Chinese paint. I prefer PPG paints.
