Aren't those companies wholly owned and operated by Horizon Hobbies, their umbrella/octopus organization? I appreciated having both links! Hope this plane is as good as their ads.

Well Hank - thanks for the question.

The reason I post Horizon Hobby is they own the ParkZone brand. ParkZone is a Horizon Hobby brand not the other way around.

Just look at the bottom of the page you posted. They are one in the same.

So the "actual" company is Horizon Hobby (not Hobbies by the way).

Since I started the thread I use the parent company.

When you start the thread you can use the link you prefer.

I think the vid shows it is a pretty decent floater.

Hmmm, I guess they updated the page since I first visited...

But $250 for a flying tractor?

Well, that's for the RTF version. The BNF or PNP version will be less expensive.

It's like 185 for the PNP.

37.1 wingspan...works out to be 1/8.5 scale

If you mean Parkzone Entered the fray a few years ago, then O.K. I believe this airplane has been available for quite some time. They may have upgraded it with some more detail; but, I think it isn't new!

Nope it is brand new. You are thinking of the Great Planes who had a smaller balsa/ply version of an SE5a.

Here is the video proof ....
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NkiC6aB3yvI

What I really like is the foam surface is now much smoother. It is really actually pretty hard to see the beads at all.

They continue to really produce excellence - worth EVERY penny IMHO.

By the way the vid above also talks about the new balsa/ply Platinum series Super Cub 25e! It too looks very nice.

Mike

It actually is new in their warbird lineup.
Can't wait to see this one up close, if it's like any other PZ it should fly nice.

If they bring out a Spad I will have to steal out of wife's purse till I get enough to buy it. Maybe she won't notice her older jewelry missing.

If you occassionally buy her new jewelry you should get away with selling off her older jewelry.

Can't buy her jewelry, that would take money I could use to buy another plane.

Oh your right, didn't think of that. Well, you can always pawn her older jewelry and hope to be able to get it back!
