  • Would motion consider adding sonic models?

    I think it would be awesome to have good purpose built fpv platforms to choose from. And sonic makes some of the best around. Especially for race wings.

    They also make the big 1875mm B-17 for Hobbyking. Would love to see that carried by motion!

      And the PT-17 for HK ..............Per Sonic Modell website....looks like they are moving away from these warbird models to the FPV platforms.

                      This would be fantastic! I would order one of each - green and silver.

                      I think HK has stepped on their own D***s. I see that HSDgo now carries the HK C-47. It even comes in a HobbyKing box.


                      So, my Motion friends, maybe you can at least look into carrying these B-17s!

                        No they are not the same. In fact, Sonic changed it's name to Jindian. HK is out if the B-17 game from what I can tell. They did a special run with Jindian and changed the panel lines on the mold. Jindian will sell the new version in the future, but currently are trying to get rid of the V1 before molding again.They own the mold, not HK.

                            Just saying that all these companies like HSD, Sonic, Starmax and Blitzworks are know for having an "almost" great plane then discontinuing it and it would be great if FL/FW would purchase these popular airframe molds and do them right. Just imagine what the LX (Blitzworks) B-25, Sonic B-17 and HSD A-1 Skyraider would be like with an Alpha "Make over".

                              That would be great and would happily consume more of my dollars.

                                Emphatically concur.......I think we had that discussion at your place when looking over the Sandy you snagged at eWEEK and came to that mindset.
