Totally optional.

Who knows... so much coverage on the merger I hope he waited. I bet he did - surely there would have been something posted by now.

There is video from Joe Nall on the Flex Innovation FB page of QQ flying the Model 12 Mamba on the 3D line.

Hi guys, I watched Quique fly this amazing Bipe yesterday and today at the 3-D Flightline and all I can say is "WOW"!!! You can't believe how precise and stable it flys. He put it through the paces and it is totally capable of the really low and slow and also the high energy maneuvers as well. Always a treat to watch the absolute Master fly and it was obvious that he was really having fun. I would have to say that this plane gets a big thumbs up.

Good to see you as well. After 3 hours of packing up we are headed home in the morning. I will contact you when I get back in the office. Be well.

splash a little black paint on them and they would hardly be noticeable

Love the look of this, I recently sold my 100CC beast and have regretted it ever since.

Do you think this would perform well on a DLE 55 with KS tuned pipe, I have a light setup on my current EF extra using a single A123 and Nimh for ignition. Would be interested in swapping the gear over.

Also is there any issues getting these in the UK, do you have a distributor or can we order direct.

Thanks

Chris

Hi,
A 'Preview' web page is now up. Not much new information at this time, but is together in one place on the 'official' site.

Best Regards,
David

I wish there were some longer videos of the Mamba flying. Those are just teasers.
