WTF?? Calm your excitement!! I'll wait for you to get one first. Right now it seems only you care about being the " Top Dog", whatever that is.

That is an impressive EDF jet, no doubt about it. $620 as a rtf is not out of line. I wonder what the airframe only or the ARF is priced at.

$610

I have to assume it's a standard 40" foamy. When I saw the price, I thought it was a 60". I saw "crash resistant" construction, but no material spec. For the price, it would have to be something like that "mystery" material supposedly found near Roswell during an alien spacecraft crash, that can be deformed in all ways, and pops right back into shape.
Back to the real world of non-fiction, it's probably more like $2 worth of injection molded foam.

Wait a while, and someone else will likely have it at much less, such as Nitroplanes. Has generally been the case in the past. While it has a high voltage system and retracts, for that money, I could have the assurance of putting my own absolute top quality HV ESCs and retracts in a jet.

Also, I doubt they have it in stock, if they were to have to pay anywhere near that amount. At those prices, they can afford to order it from China, airmail it to your house overnight, and still make lots of money. A lot to pay a middleman, eh?

That is the PERFECT epitomization of EDF posters at RCG.

Coffee? Usually a case does that for my English. Then again, maybe it's why I gave that up years ago.

I think simply writing: Blaeaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhh!, would make as much sense to most.
While I'm not an English professor, some of the grammar, punctuation, but most importantly the overall wording of this post makes it horribly difficult for one to follow and make sense of.
Other things, while minor, are still a reflection of one's pride in their writing:
CAPITALIZATION. iTs ReAlLy nOt tHat mUch effOrT.

thats why i edited what i had before, maybe i think he got offended or something.... i do not post to do so. and/or picked on that manor.... Anyways i do not need to explain anything, if fact if i did, the government should really explain why we are in so-called a war lol.....

i was thrill to see how far this plane takes Foamy EDF to a new level with all the eye candy and glitter this product offers. im not really interested in this one, I should be over in the slope/warmliner as the Blizzard offers milk and cookies performance for the lovely products Multiplex develops... please if anyone gets this, im interested in your Thoughts about it.... Thanks Scott

Lighten up Francis!! Its not such a big deal. Yup , I've had my share of crashes. I also fly ALOT more than some people and I like to take chances. Back on topic. The jet does look nice, but it is WAAAY overpriced for what appears to be foam. Like I said before , when you get one I'll get one too so we can race at the field.

Now wait a second....
They may be the higher grade retracts like the GP15 size I bought for $12, versus the $10 GWS Blues.

I figured it out after seeing the pic you posted there. It's the scale bombs that make it easily worth $600.

looks nice but at the end of the day it is still a 600 dollar foamy. I guess if you want to feel like you have a meticulously detailed scale bird but without the work then this is you ticket...
