Carbon-Z Gee Bee...???

If you share my intense desire for a Carbon-Z Gee Bee then read on!

Let's Make the Carbon-Z Gee Bee a Real Thing!

When I first got into RC so many years ago I wanted a Gee Bee. I flew the one in Real Flight every morning practicing my landings. I went to Toledo and always had my eye peeled for a cool Gee Bee kit. The weird part is that somehow all these years later I have never owned one.

When the Carbon-Z (big) Cub came out I loved it. I did multiple mods and features about that plane. I have often wondered how many of those Cubs we sold just from all the videos and stories done on RCGroups. It was then I had the idea...

A Carbon-Z Gee Bee - CZGB

One day I started thinking about how cool it would be if Horizon made a Carbon-Z version of the Gee Bee. We know that that Horizon planes fly great and the Carbon-Z variations are always awesome. Can you imagine that huge fuselage made of foam? It would be a natural evolution in the Carbon-Z line!

I Finally Made the Suggestion

Last week I was invited to fly online with the Horizon Team. We did a RealFlight live feed. I joined flying the Gee Bee in RF and then picked the right time to suggest my idea of the Carbon-Z Gee Bee. To my surprise the concept was met with, "Go on, I'm listening." Everyone thought it was a super interesting idea. Then it was suggested that someone create a thread on RCGroups to see how much interest there would be in it. That was all it took. Here is the thread!

Our Chance to Make it Real - VOTE!

Vote yes in the poll thread and let's see how high we can get the number. If enough users chime in maybe we can all get our hands on an awesome Carbon-Z Gee Bee!!

Yes, I would buy one. I'm in the middle of building one from a short kit.
Would sure like to have one to learn the intricacies of the flight envelope before throwing many hours of work up into the sky.

I have a brand new Great Planes 1.20-1.60 size version that I’m going to put a DLE 40 in. I’d buy a carbon Z version in a heart beat! An even larger 50cc one would be amazing!

If they made one I'd impulse buy it no questions asked. It'd be fun to do the Delmar Benjamin routine with it, HH make it so!
