I always thought the glider and helicopter sections of your website needed filling... Good for you! I cant wait to see them in action... Got anything ready to test at the oct 2 launch in Amesbury?


Im not even gonna TRY to get you to tell me what it is... Your too stubborn. ;)

Well, would it hurt to tell us what they are named? Id like to know that, at least. I wouldent mind a few teaser pics either...

LOL

I don't have a lot of detail myself as we haven't set our 2005 product schedule yet (sometime in Nov/Dec) but we can expect some of the following:

a glider kit (perhaps conpetition, perhaps sport, not sure)
a helicopter kit (same as above)
scale (1-3 different possibles)
futuristic
multi-stage (2 possibles, very cool)
cluster (one that is near and dear to my heart :D )

One question/caution... We really do have a slew of great ideas and hope to cement our *general* direction in the next couple of months. After that you will start to see more information from us in the form of sneek previews and such. Also, anything we *pre*announce as a plan of action is subject to change.

The question is, is this information desireable or is it more frustration than it is worth? I talk about our upcoming kits because I am excited about them, but if all I am doing is frustrating then I would prefer not to do that.

The FarScape and the ACME are two good examples. It was nearly a year after first talking about them before they actually came to be...

Jim,

Are you planning on offering a cluster MMT of 4-18mm in a BT-80?
Just wondering as it'd work great on a scale subject I have in mind.
Can you say "FFAR"?

Are you thinking about extending your "design" resource access in other directions as in Shrox?

I for one am ok with the pre-release chatter. It generates excitement and anticipation, similar to, but not the same as frustration. It lets us know good stuff is cooking and there is stuff coming down the pike worth looking for!
But expect to see a :kill: occasionally;)

no, not at this time. We simply have too many of our own designs we'd like to get out :)
