Think not, it must be different to the smaller ones.
Waiting for a vid shows the 120cc in the air.

That would be good.

At the very least, if the orange cowl photo is an indication of the second color scheme, they need to replace the black with dark metallic plum instead. Orange with black on the scheme shown seems a bit Halloween to me. Probably just me though.

No way a 2k just for the airframe.

I'm sure Flex wants to compete...

Most 70cc monoplane ARFs are going for about 800. The Mamba 70cc is 850. Most 120cc monoplanes are about $1200. So I’d expect a 120cc Mamba to be $1300-$1400

I’d love to see a package with DA-120, Exhaust, Aura Pro and 7 servos for about $4000

$1,400 seems the most realistic

The photo of the cowl is just an off color pic. The Mamba 120 is covered in Ultracoat Dark Yellow so it appears orange in some low light photos.

The Proton scheme is very complex and would be difficult to achieve with covering film and using covering film would not do the scheme justice as it is painted with all metallics and pearlized paint.

I am hoping your right. This info came from one of their dealers. I didn't think to ask if that was a version that included servos.

Another factor to consider is that Quique is likely to recommend and package the 120cc Mamba with the new Aura 12 pro. That’s a $300 power expander, gyro, with battery and receiver redundancy. $2k with shipping and the Aura Pro would be about right.

Yeah, Im with you! No more black covering PLEASE. Its impossible to keep clean & it wrinkles in the desert sun.

A sweet metallic blue would have been amazing IMO.

This will be the other scheme. Red, white, & blue. I would also guess the ARF would be in the $1500 range.
