A familiar face around these parts.  :) I didn't know he'd come over the pond... This could be a very popular model, at the time of writing there are ten left for pre-order in the first batch.. It's apparently due in the UK sometime early next year..

So with a price-tag at over two and a half thousand dollars it comes without servos? They're 'avin' a bleedin' giraffe!!

There are no shortcuts on the long, hard road to success. But if your dad's rich there could a limo service...

Half those buying one of these would swap out the servos if they were installed anyway. The retract until looks pretty nifty though. The German models are at least 50% more expensive than this, the proof of course is in the pudding, or in this case the layup. The 'live' video on the last link he was asked what the construction was, and I thought it odd he said 'It isn't balsa', but went on to say it's  composite construction. Whether that's a honeycomb? He said there are no ribs in it, so presumably the skin and spar within is the construction?  $%& Reading the specs it comes out pretty light for it's size.
