It's been quiet for a while. I hope things are getting better for everyone. I miss the show.

An update from me...unsolicited...lols.

After over a year's worth of homework, Shark.Aero r.s.o. accepted my offer to be their US representative and distributor. Whilst we still cannot import the Shark UL into the US as a RTF airplane, we are offering the Shark "US" as a quick-build kit bundled with a builder education and assistance program. The demo plane should be in the US by the summer. I'm also working on some neat avionics as well as integrating some of the UAS tech, that started in the RC world to improve the overall flying and ownership experience.


Exciting stuff.

Thanks! I hope it works out.

If all goes well, the demo plane should ship from Europe by the end of this month and should be in the US by Spring! I managed to find a "slightly used" airplane, and don't have to wait for one to roll off the factory.

Hopefully, I'll take it on "tour" this summer, and swing by your neck of the woods. We'll go flying. :)

In fact the hardest part of this drill is finding someone who can stuff the plane into a shipping container...LOLs.

Getting there I guess. But we just buried Liz's Mom on Saturday, so it has kindof reset the "normal" clock once again. :|
