    Like most Horizon pricing, I think you'll find that's also going to be the post-order price and likely the "forever" price unless they can't sell enough of them by next year's black Friday sale.

      Right before they discontinue it...

        Or do a V2 or V3, then the "original" price goes way up and they give you the same "discount" or keep the same original price and give you a smaller discount. ---- A genius way to grab a few more sales.

          Yes, FMS is one of a few that does update their lanes into V2, 3, etc ... I find it interesting those in the FreeWing threads like the big Mig saying that "when they release a V2" they will fix this and that. FreeWing almost never has an official V2. They do upgrade power systems but that's when they discontinue an older system. I think it's crazy that the F-14 which has been selling for years still has an upside down decal on it. How long with the Gripen have a misspelled decal?

I'm hoping they didn't order a watered down version to keep the cost down .They are showing the pre- order price reduced about $90. That's a lot of cool gadgetry for the price.

            I see they show a max batt size of 5000mah. and a max flight time of 3 min. They know how to manage customer expectations. I'm already thinking 6000mah and 4 min. Lol.

            The color is growing on me.Was aghast at first. Chris from RC Geek has a video up on You Tube showing a BVM version in the same livery. I think that was the final nudge to make me click on the buy button.Good enough for a $20k turbine, good enough for me. Ha
            You do realize that is an actual paint scheme representing an actual aircraft?

              My Eurofighter is officially a V2, my two F-35s are a V2 and a V3, there have been several iterations of the power system (9 or 12B, inrunner or outrunner) for the Avanti and Mirage, and we have HP versions of several.

              I'm fairly sure the stock Eurofighter had a mispelled decal to the end of its run (I can't check because mine is painted over and has Callie graphics, which themselves have an incorrect serial number for GINA).

                Manfred,

                No I really did not realize that the livery is representative of a full scale. Now I know. Thought someone got drunk in the art department. Crazy French

                  Have you not seen other Tigermeet planes? YouTube or google Tigermeet.

                  It's not just the french that are crazy...the whole world is crazy, it's just us americans that don't realize that we are crazy too.

                        All look very cool. Can't wait to get mine in Feb/March or whenever they arrive. Will watch for Pilot Ryan and Rich Baker to do their build and fly vids. Might order an AB in advance from Goony or Chris

                            I have uploaded an STL file for a dual flickering afterburner adapter to fit the FMS inrunner EDF for the Rafale to Thingiverse. The link is on my blog.

                              Arming the Rafale should be fun:

                                Was going to buy the Freewing Gripen but Motion RC have lost the plot .Like most of their spare parts the Gripen is out of stock and has been for 3 months and after promise after promise from Motion RC it is still out of stock and I have given up with Freewing's promising me it will be in next week and nothing happens. So I have ditch the Gripen and have gone for the Rafale

                                  Rafale was announced more than 5 months ago. It is hardly a great example of prompt delivery.

                                  Over 400,000 people DEAD in the USA from this pandemic but people whine about having to wait for their toys.

                                    Which is weird because it looks like the Grippen is in stock. But if your dead set on the Rafale just get it.

                                    Oh, nevermind, you are in Europe. They are in stock in the US.

                                      You are right Kallend .There are more important things then waiting to see if a model is or is not in stock

                                        I have read that Horizion Hobby are not going to send anymore items to the UK including the new Rafale due to Brexit. That will be a pain, looking forward to buying the new Rafale. Anyone know for sure this is the case or is it a case of scare mongering by the remainers again
