Nice looking on the outside. Construction looks heavy and from 15 years ago. I noticed they never came off the throttle in the video.

I think I still want one argh....

It's actually quite light and can fly much slower than you'd expect. for normal sport aerobatics it's more enjoyable with a bit of speed, say 1/2 to 60% throttle so the video shows more of that.

Haven't put smoke in but I can think of a couple ways to mount the tank, and there's plenty of room in the fuselage.

Construction and designs are very similar to Phoenix Model, I'm sure is the same factory that's made in and they tend to use lighter ply and birch wood so it should be on the lighter side. But I so agree that in this age a little carbon fiber and parts will go a long way....looks like a fun and different from what's out there in the 50cc class...

The hardware is very similar to Phoenix as is the balancing tool. I suspect that's who sells it to Horizon.

Might want to update this line:

Flying Weight 2001-25000g

So, it's between 2 and 25 kilograms? (4.4 - 55 lbs)

Only a combo deal with a DLE engine? And who remembers the H9 P3 quality issues?
