Default Small WWI planes?

How about a review of the new WWI electrics that giantscaleplanes.com is selling now? Nobody has done it yet! You could be on the "cutting edge"!!!

Hey Watt? Does that mean that you'll get one and do a review? I get so tired of reviews only being on WWII and 3D planes!!! They look good huh? I don't much care for the color schemes though!! They would probably cut you a deal because nobody has done a review on these little planes yet. They look pretty close to scale.

maybe they will!..thatd be nice.

i think though for a review that they'd want to be using the specced setup..and colour scheme.

thats ok, i kinda like the transparent look for something different.

Hello; this is off the subject but are there any decent size r/c electric boats on the market? And if there is do the hobby shops carry them or are they in a catalog someplace? Thanks. [email protected]

Has anyone seen the WWI models that SIG carries under the Kavan brand yet? I've seen the ads, but not the actual models yet. My browser here at work is blocked from sites that have "hobbies" in them.

Default got the skinny

OK, spoke with Chuck today from GSP.

Apparently the review for the micro ww1 types will be out in FlyRC and Model Airplane News shortly.

The cool thing is that these planes come with a small brushless outrunner (not all of them), and a brushed motor as a choice and need no more than a 700mah or so 7.4-11.1 battery or nimh equivalent.

Stay Tuned.

Tim.
