A new plane coming to Australia?

I hear (from a reliable source) that there's a new FPV platform on its way Down-Under and I might even have a photo or two to boot... Not a lot of detail as yet, but by the look of this thing it will be great!

It's called the Finwing Penguin and has been on sale in the US an Europe for a few months now. Looking at other forums (yes I have been exploring other places :o :shock: :? ) it is a winner on all levels.
Apparently Skywalker really need to look out because this bad boy is supposed to be stable, easy to fly (even for beginners) and have more payload and accessible space than anything in its class!!! I also heard that it has a stronger than anything on the market centre spar and the horizontal stab has unique reinforcement too, so will be glad to see what else I can find out from the one I ordered one from the US a while back. It just arrived, so the build and critique will soon be posted.

Looks like it's made in China too. 8-)

Oh this is too much - a down facing camera bracket too - I imagine you could get some great footage with this thing. :twisted: :roll: :lol: :lol: :lol:

I do know that these things will be here just after Christmas so don't go ordering them with costly delivery prices. I will post when I hear they're near. :D ;) :P

Guess Bruce needs to get hold of one of these flying Penguins and see what it can do... (Big HINT there Mr Importer!!!) ;)
