What is the expected delivery of the production units??? Also, what do you need as a down payment in order to reserve.

Let me know

Thanks
Bill
Not sure yet....... I am pretty sure that if you send me all your information I'll put you on the list. No deposit required yet.

I need to get the prototype and fly it to make sure there are no issues. The 'production' of these B-29's will start as soon as the flying begins. So, I suspect we will have production B-29's will be avialable for everyone by the end of the year. Maybe as early as October-November we will be selling them to the general public.

Due to the extreem cost and size of this airplane, I dont want to release them until ours has flown! (just in case, lol)

Well..... It is official: I have (2) NEW airplanes for the start of 2011! These 2 airplanes should be a lot of fun and of interest to most people out there!

The first airplane to be release will be a NEW 100cc SNS-7 Hiperbipe! This unique scale airplane should offer some fantastic 3D capability. This will have a 87" wing span. The air foiled shape fusleage and counter balanced elevators will make this a 3D dream machine! Soon after the 100cc is done a 150-170cc version will be done as well.

The next plane to be released at the same time as the Hiperbipe is the 50cc Clipped Wing Cub! You have all seen the larger versions so this will be an oportunity to get the 50-60cc version. The wing span of this airplane is going to be 84" and should have pleanty power to weight for all the Torque Rolling you want to do!

Get on the list now to be the first at your field for these realy cool and unique airplanes!!

There WILL be a 50cc Decathlon too! It will be after the 50cc Clipped WIng Cub though!

Here are a few shots of a SNS-7 Hiperbipe.

The 150cc Corsair is still an idea right now and will still concider it but after having as much problems with Robart and Sierra Retracts for getting retract for the BD-5, I am not sure if I want to go down that road agian!!! Those companies are unbelievable..........

Something is not right, the Hyper bipe just does not look........like it has the "BILL HEMPEL" look. This cant be a Hempel design. Whats the story Bill, was this thrown at you or is it really a BH design?

Lol Mike!

This airplane was designed by the Sorrell Brothers. I am only making into an RC version. This is really a very unique Biplane, one that I feel will really offer some very nice precision and 3D capabilities! This will also be the FIRST ARF of this design ever offered in the RC industry. This airplane will be for someone who wants a nice flying airplane that doesnt look like everyone elses airplane. Why am 'I' doing this? Well...To offer something different AND: I owned a'real' SNS-7 Hiperbipe for a few years and had a blast flying it. I want one for myself! I will definatley be flying this plane as soon as I can get thim in stock! (You will order one Mike, just wait until you see it fly!)

Mike,
It's got Hempel all over it more than you know! I got a PM from him earlier today and he'll pop in here and tell you all how Hempel that bipe really is! You might say we're both "Sorrell Brothers!"
I can barely wait to see this one...... Crank out a video ASAP Bill!

Luv the hyper bipe, I have seen many full scale fly and they all love them. However I do know some of them and also some previous models had horrendus adverse yaw effects, I hope you dont run into this. Should be a winner for sure if not.
Any cost estimates for the 100cc SN-7 and a approx fuse length?
