Yes. I am afraid so. I found out last week that due to the factory being really badly hit by Covid their workforce is 35% down on what it was 12 months ago. It was decided that all of the production capacity would be switched to focusing on the Ov-10. This meant that there would be no room to produce Oscar's for quite some time. So it was decided by our purchasing team to discontinue it. A sad day for me, as it was one of my favorite projects during my time as a HH Product developer.

Understand Ali - several at our Fort Worth Texas airfield became interested in the Oscar upon seeing it fly so well with understanding I am not a great pilot....this is a truly great airframe. Your work on this subject and the airframe is outstanding.....it looks and flies fantastic. Great job Ali -

We sincerly hope HH will keep the plans and bring this model gack again someday.

Flew to 1st place in my class at the 2021 Ed Couch Texas Scale Masters Competition with the Ki-43 Oscar .....many compliments from the gally and competitor pilots. This aircraft flies excellent, fast, powerful, graceful and presents really well in flight. Can only hope Horizom brings it back.....this is one of the best performers of legions of R/C aircraft of all sizes smaller and larger.
