Price, production date, electric motor options and all that are still up in the air at this time. Right now we are just doing a feasibility study to see if the upscale can be sucessfully converted to R/C.
So far, I would classify this as an intermediate flyer, not terribly difficult, but not a trainer either. Some R/C experience would be required to fly this.
The tests currently under way are to determine the optimal CG location in glide mode for controlled flight. We already know the optimal location for free flight and have established the forward and aft CG limits for this design.
The production kit would most likely come as a free flight model, just like the standard Red Baron. We would provide templates for cutting out the control surfaces and R/C gear location.
We are very early in the test phase of this model, so my best guess right now is that this would have a release date in the last quarter of 2005 at the earliest. We already have the production schedule for Squirrel Works planned out through June of next year.
