Freeman 1600...

Hi!

I saw a review of the Freeman 1600 on HK a while ago, but it since disappeared from their inventory. Is there a reason for this, has Flitetest had a go at it ever?

I'm asking, cause I bought one earlier this year from a local (SA) dealer, and loved it. I'm just surprised that I don't see more of this plane around. Any reason?

Regards!

Hobbyking took the Freeman and shrunk it by 50% to make the Atom ;)

Hobbyking probably decided they had enough planes almost identical to this. Often HK pulls planes due to difficulties with suppliers etc.

Yeah, Spirit looks cool. Hopefully someone will chuck two motors on that sucker - one on the pusher pod and one on the nose. Should develop some serious pace with the right setup!
