Tim,.........I agree,...We need one of those! Had I known about the Bipe I would have ordered that instead,...would have saved me some money,..LOL! I will for certian order a bipe if it's around $800.00 U.S. Dollars.

I have the Element 170 composite on the way in this shipment. I hope to have it for the Dist. #2 Championships for display,..don't think I can get it ready before then.

You can e-mail Alex shim at Fliton,....His email is posted on page 6,...I think,...really nice guy.

Bill Holsten

Yeah,...I would think maybe an all wood version may be $800.00,..doubt the composite would be, unless it is a mixture of both?

But if so,...heck yeah Mike get one to play with,..LOL.

Well $800.00 U.S. dollars seems like a great price,..time will tell! So,...how much is the composite version going to be,.....I guess,..............(this could be painful)$2,500.00 based on the cost of the mono wing Element 170 composite,...still a great price considering everything out there in bipes and mono-wings.

In the wood version,....ARF, ARC and glassed fuse and wings is an option?

I wonder what size and weight are going to be? I don't see how you can get a legal biplane that cheap.

Yeah,...measurements and dimensions and weights would be nice, since there is a proto-type already flying from what I understand. Fliton seems to do it's home work before they release a product,...should be interesting to see the actual numbers on the finished product for the consumer/end user.

Still cool looking!

Its true Fliton so take their time ... guess they are not rushing out to make money only. Looks like they know how not to rush. Some of my F3A pals have seen the bipe pics and they are excited too. A F3A bipe at USD800! I hear Fliton have 50cc/100cc/150cc planes to be out soon.
