airbourne...take a look at this...looks exactly the same and I have one. Have yet to fly it...a little scared as it's running a 10s lipo setup and spinning a 7x9 prop at over 30k rpms!!! 3k rpms more than APC says the prop can handle. I'm looking into carbon fiber props from www.supercoolprops.com (http://www.supercoolprops.com) to take care of that issue though. They'll be able to handle the high rpms much better than the nylons. http://wildharerc.com/Products/Racer/racer.htm

hi Joe, i did a little research and they are the same plane. they are made in Thailand by xtreme composites. i emailed windharerc, but haven't had a reply yet. i found a company in japan that has one, but i ordered mine from Norway as they specified an electric kit. i'm not going to build mine for a while yet as i have masses of projects to do first, but i think i will get a mega 22 30 3 for it and try a 7x9 apc using a 6s pack. it looks like a really nice plane and i can't resist those hahaha
