Supplies of this model, first exhibited at Nuremburg in 2007, are now arriving in the UK. We've had the opportunity of examining the kit close at hand and we're very impressed with the quality here. It's a big model of course and although extensive pre-fabrication is in evidence, there's still plenty for the builder to get stuck into and complete. A model with a lot of presence, a suitable subject for extra scale detail, yet a practical every club model too.

The model can be i.c. or electric powered (using two 4S Li-Po's) and retracts are available. Ripmax tell us the Invader is as easy to fly as any 60 sized warbird.
