Hello Hobby King and Mr Anthony Hand,

I truly love what you have done for this hobby.  You have made it affordable and accessible to anyone with a computer.  Your variety is awesome, and your service meets my requirements.

I am an avid glider flyer, but I find the gliders you have available a bit limited (despite your massive range of planes).  They are all relatively high wing-loading planes, best suited to slope flying.  The Canary SQ is a light-weight thermal plane, albeit small and a bit "low tech" with no ailerons or flaps.  If you marketed something like the RCM Pelikan Elegant 700, I am sure you would sell them out, at a healthy profit too!

Your awesome product range sadly lacks larger gliders.  I understand they are expensive to ship, but I'd be prepared to pay, and I'm sure others would too.  The market seems to lack a light-weight larger glider (2.5m+) with flaps and ailerons.  Your friends at R2 Hobbies have not plugged this gap neither.  Hobby King is all about responding to market gaps, so how about it???  Note all the comments on the Canary SQ discussion tab, with people looking for ailerons.  Go on Hobby King - the market is there, and I'm sure someone in China is making something that fits this description.Thumbs Up

Love your work,
Straight Up

Something like this:



I'm sure they are made in China.  Anthony and co have been excellent at locating the original factories, e.g. the appearance of the Canary SQ at a fraction of the cost of its proprietary version.  Come on Anthony, YOU CAN DO IT!!!!

I would love to see a glider with a as big a possible span (that would fit standard shipping pallets BUT with a 3 part wing, that would make it about 3.5 meters.
Done in all GFK, with a Carbon reinforced wing -to make it strong and fast for winch launching.
I might be back agian - like it or hate it

-or maybe even larger, with a 4 part wing.

Just a performance glider, not a scale one (though is hurts me as a scale fan, I would love to have a Super good performing glider)
