I could see a 40% but not a 35%. (they're not makin a 35% 300)
I think it would be a great idea.

Love to see one as long as they don't put that cheesy looking pointed upper wing on like the PAU version? That pointed upper wing ruins the apperance as to a scale top wing that has a flat spot the width of the fuse which gives it that distinguished scale look?

you could make a 50% 10-200 and it be 150cc size . There are a few benefits to the 200 over the 300 .

i love the idea but i think it would probably be a bit more with the times if they made a python type aircraft.

So what's with all the Python's showing up?? How does Kimball authorize QQ to make a Python/ M-12 and then everyone starts?? I saw one company say that they were halting production because of the trademark/Patent/copyright of the M-12 to Kimball... The video on the QQ website makes it look like it flies heavy... Do they?? Anyone have a video of some off the hook ultimate/python flying?? Maybe a Seth Arnold free vid??

EMHW (Exclusiv Modellbau Weiershäuser) produce a 100cc Ultimate kit, you can look at my build thread here on FG, Click! It's a great kit to build, strong and light. And all the parts are very high quality wood and the fiber parts are also great quality.

The only Video i know is form the EMHW 112" Ultimate version with 3W 212ccm 4 Banger, but the 85" is just scaled down.http://de.
The official dealer in the USA for EMHW kits is Desert Aircraft.

regards niklas

Doesn't matter which full scale aircraft is newer; only which design flies better.

I had the good fortune to be at a meet where an H-9 46% Ulti and a couple of QQ Pythons were flown pretty near to each other in time span. All were flown by accomplished operators. I could not see the benefit of a Python over the Ultimate by any means at all. The Pythons looked different but I thought the Ultimate flew better.

It would be cool if Cardin was to do a big Ulti, but would the sales numbers support it?

i don't disagree... we have both the PAU ulty and the H9 46% in our stable and we really enjoy them.

trends sell... the trend right now is definitely that of the python not the ultimate. i am NOT declaring one airframe better than the other, i am simply pointing out a trend.
