Default Re: Full scale 3-D, Toucan turboprop

I just uploaded a few short clips of the Turbine Toucan, the bird is in its element, sort of speak. The take-off clip shows the Toucan with over 528lbs. of fuel on board which is more then twice what we'll carry on our time to climb record attempt (though we already broke the C-1C record by 40% on our first practice flight). The high speed pass has a sound which is all its own. We were really worried that a turbo prop might be way to quite for air show crowds until I made a pass at better then 242mph, not bad for level flight in a biplane. The real magic will start to happen when Ken Erickson takes the Toucan through its paces in never-before-seen maneuvers. Thanks again for all your continued support over the past eighteen months!

We'll have the clips on our site soon enough but for now, please go to either youtube.com or www.airshowbuzz.com (under new videos). Links provided for youtube:

OH MY GOD! That is SUPER impressive. Knowing what an Extra 300L feels like on Takeoff/Climb Out, gives me absolute shivers when I see this thing. I can't wait until the Toucan is touring airshows!!!

Infinity Entertainment Inc. and Quique Somenzini are proud to preview the first of several models in the works! Quique has been hard at work developing an electric that is not only a great flyer but one that best balances the esthetics of the original Turbine Toucan, and we think he’s nailed it! The first model (pictured) is fully ARF and very quick to assemble. Preliminary info includes wingspan of 41inches and length of 45 inches. Class and weight information will be coming soon.
Only 4 servos to drive all control surfaces! Also, the TT will have a very unique system to attach the wings that makes the assembly at the field just a matter of a very few minutes, simple amazing! Stay tuned, a lot more info to follow soon enough!

It did say several models though. I remember the Wren in his Yak a long time ago, it should be sweet in the Toucan!!!
