Sport 180, first look at Hobby People’s new plane.

Last Thursday I spent some time with Mike Greenshields at Hobby People’s main office in Fountain Valley California.  While I was there, Mike showed me their brand new prototype aircraft, the new Sport 180.  This great looking park flyer resembles a Cessna and is one sweet flyer.  It will come with its own transmitter and it will be a ready to fly kit.  I am told that it will have a very attractive price point.  This is the final production prototype so look for it to be on the market very soon.
