wow, that's really cool looking. I am amazed at the weight! Something like that, I'd build a nice fitting box for it and keep it in the car all the time.

Price? Not finding it.

Thanks for the $ info... I called my local hobby shop today and they didn't know about it yet.

Too bad the folks making these can't think of anything but red.

The uninitiated seem to expect all WWI German planes to be red.
I like it though.
At that price get a few and paint them to make your own Flyng Circus.

I never crashed an aircraft. It was always the manufacturers fault.

It would appear that I did not. Not sure why. Nothing at the top of the page for me...

I don't crash, it was a planned stunt.

Now for my last stunt, a forward flip on landing.

Sit on a product for months losing summer sales.
Are they that rich or that stupid?
I don't think the factories in China have much of a problem churning out millions of 3ch foamies quickly (IE: airhogs, megatech).

Tower has moved the date again:

"Late Sep"

Maybe this is like the GWS D.VII

Hey D I just checked Tower's website and the link for the Albatros doesn't even come up under a search! Interesting! Maybe they are getting their chops busted because they don't have it for sale. marty
