Clearly designed to go head to head with the WOT4, the foamy version in particular, Riot, an EPO foam aerobat, arrives in UK shops very soon.

It was designed by Century UK's Mark Tilbury, spans 55" and is for a 3S 2200-2400mAh Li-Po battery. A battery and receiver are all you need as the RTF machine comes with a factory fitted power system and servos.

Initial impressions are very good - the model is nicely made, light yet strong and reveals plenty of nice touches aimed at squaring the rigours imposed by rough grass flying fields.

A WOT killer then? Look out for the RCM&E review very soon.
