Hi Doug
I have been working on this for about 18 months.  Last summer the company that John Brodak contracted submitted prototypes for the Vector and  later on the SV-11.  The company that builds these does a spectacular job on all the wood parts, we needed a little more TLC on some details and the control line specific hardware.  I designed the electric installations for both models and evaluated the first prototypes of the electrics.  Randy Smith (designer of the Vector & SV-11) evaluated the IC versions of both.  Changes were made. The model that Steve picked up is the final "prove out" version.  Since Steve had not seen the first prototype he came into this with no preconceived notions and a fresh set of eyes to evaluate the build.  Sounds like his experience has been real good.  

Steve had built one of the earlier Vector ARF's (or ARC?) and he has noted that the new versions are better built.  I flew the proto E-Vector last spring before handing it over to Mr. Brodak.  The electric SV-11 prototype is RTF, pending a few more degrees on the thermometer and a few less mph on the wind gauge!

The IC powered versions of both models will be available as an ARF or an ARC, the electric versions will be available as ARF only.  Delivery target is late June or July

Dennis  has done a great job on these. After Putting  together  a E Ringmaster and  finding how good it Flys,  I want to help out a little. It may take up more of his time talking to me all the time, then if he did it him self. I will show more pictures as I get it done.

Are the "E" models set up for both Front and Rear motor mounting?

Thanks

Hi MM
Not sure yet.  Last years protos were heavy.  The E-Vector weighs 55 oz with a 4Sx2700 battery.  The E-SV11 is 73 oz RTF.  I told the builder we needed 7-8 oz reduction and they pledged to achieve that.  I am awaiting to see the final weight on Steve's Vector, but I know they added a lot of air in place of balsa - which is usually an effective path.

Last year's 55 ouncer flies quite well, if they get it under 50 oz I think it will be great.
