Default ParkZone 4-Channel Sneak Peek


For quite a while, folks have been asking us if and when ParkZone will be releasing a 4-channel ultra-micro system. This isn't an announcement for a specific product, but we want people to know that we're working in this direction.

Since this isn't a product announcement, don't bother asking local hobby shops about this. They don't have any information and won't for quite a while. And don't expect me to give up much info at this point, except that our prototypes are flying well, and they're flying on DSM2.

Wow, that's cool!

I'm guessing (hoping/praying) this will be Bind-n-Fly?

I don't know why, but I love this mini stuff. Guess it's the whole "I can fly in the basketball court while my kid plays in the playground" aspect.

I'm with you.

They are so light they hardly ever get damage when they hit the ground.
This is going to be cool.

I'm up for buying one BNF or RTF, depending if I get a radio for Christmas I'd also like to see some ailerons on your new and improved Decathlon too.

Yup, you bet!! I just got off the phone with Randy/Termite and we were talking about this little gem. Next winter we will all have them buzzing the gym rafters in Hinckley!! That is when I'm not buzzing my cats here at home!! LOL!! Randy said you guys will be there tomorrow night. If I get off work early enough I may try to come out there.

I've yet to set foot in the gym this winter..... Family commitments, vacations, work....blah blah blah. Tonight is a Christmas party for my wife's work.

January is my birth month. If I don't get to go up there then I will be a little more upset. Besides, by then, I should have my mCX!

Default Update Please

Any idea when this is going to be out? I can't wait for the micro-aerobat!

Do you think Horizon will show it at E-Fest?

I do like these BNF micro's. They seem to be a lot better than the PNP stuff; I started getting the ARF instead so I know what goes in it will work for more than a couple of weeks (Blade 400 for example and the junk servo's it has).

Here is a quote from David at Horizon.

I confirm that we may be working on a micro Sukhoi!

For further leakage... go to E-fest of Nurnberg!

As this thread started.... this item is still under development. and no official timeline or product has been announced. (But we are having fun with it!)

David
This is a pic of what some stores overseas are already listing to be here around May.
