Hi,

I have ordered the Cyclone-E moulded Glider from the European (NL) Warehouse:

http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/__39528__Cyclone_E_All_Moulded_Composite_Hotliner_2000mm_ARF_EU_Warehouse_.html

Once it arrives, I will share some pictures and experiences during build here in the forum.

Matthias

Sorry for the late response, but some other projects cropped up...

I will now (slowly) start building the Cyclone.

Here are some pictures and first impressions.

The Cyclone arrived, well packaged, after 14 days (12 days for packing inside Hobbyking and 2 days for shipment from the Netherlands to Germany). I think, those were the weeks, where Hobbyking has the Lipo-issues in Hong Kong.

The Cyclone is very well made: all surfaces are fine and well painted; everything fits accurate. The fuselage has a noticable but absolutely acceptable mold parting line.
Everything seems to made from glass with lots of carbon reinforcements.

The fuselage is the new one with the so called "Kiwi-Mod" in the front (because a crazy Kiwi put a 6s 2kW drive into this poor little glider, which "disassembled" the front of the fuse...): there are now a few carbon rovings in the front.

The centersection of the fuselage and the servo-bay have large area carbon reinforcements:

On RC-Groups is a nice and worth knowing thread about the Cyclone/Typhoon:
