    I want something like my Skywalker 1900. Quiet, long flight times, perfect of mid range cruising and covering good amounts of ground. This looks absolutely perfect.
    +1 looks really great

    Vow, guys, big thank you for your interest!

    Right now is a personal project, with a single unit for my own use...

    The issue is that only Shapeways 3D printed parts cost a small fortune... Not for everyone I guess...

    As Zee suggested, Kickstarter could be an option if there is enough interest, but I need to flight test it before even thinking about it...

    Stay tuned!

    That is a small fortune Juan!

    I would ask a China company to mass produce it for you like Wayne for TechPod,
    or someone you know that can make this plane in a small volume.
    ....but make sure you get some sort of profit from it.

    I'am selling all my PUSHER FPV planes as we speak and
    I'm going to have a Fleet of TRACTOR FPV planes
    in my stable.....

    Speaking of RVJet Pan/Tilt, I have extra's here, I took mine off
    and I have someone designing a 'Tractor' Converson on my RVJet.
    If you ever come out with this, I then will extra RVJet Pan/Tilt apparatus to use
    "On My best behavior, or I'll get Banned".....
    .....I love Sports' and Vacations,....
    Whos' more Athletic? NHL players or Football/Basketball Skills' Players?

    "...I break regulations because I'm good and it's ok for me..."
