Does this look familiar?

Go Discover FPV Plane, and in Australia store!! $150 bucks

http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/__51559__HobbyKing_Go_Disc...

The Go Discover was designed from the start to be a great FPV platform with a massive center bay, straight forward layout and superb, predictable, yet sporty, flight characteristics.

What makes the Go Discover stand out is the integrated pan and tilt system in the nose, giving an un-obstructed bird’s eye view of the world below. The pan and tilt system uses 2 gear driven engagements for a smooth solid camera platform. The pan and tilt system  was designed to perfectly house a GoPro 1, 2, 3 or 3+ as well as any other board or cube FPV camera with an easy swappable back mounting plate, all housed behind a clear acrylic dome. The front dome provides a great view, while protecting your FPV gear.

Looks like a copy of the RVJET.

does hobby king ever have any original designs?

Comment by criro1999 on January 26, 2014 at 4:11pm

sure original design will cost different.

Why is it a copy because its got a plastic dome ? Without knowing im sure there are many other designs with a plastic dome up front, its hardly a breakthru.

Well, it's not really a direct copy, but it's certainly "inspired" by the RV-JET.  The wing planform is different and the wing fences new and vertical stablizers are revised.  I'm not sure how to feel about them doing this kind of thing because there are many ways to skin this cat.  I guess real innovation costs money and you won't get it at Hobby-King prices.

By that logic, the shipping costs on the aircraft are highly innovative. :-)

When you take out the middle wing extensions from the RVJET, it really looks the same minus the slight vertical stab angle.

Looks like an RVjet (the shorter wing span version) with most of the nice design details left out. I'd love to see a direct comparison.

Comment by Andrew Rabbitt on January 27, 2014 at 12:21am

The wing is completely different in several areas including the tip shape and the amount of reflex that appears to be in the foil section.  The RVJET doesn't appear to have very much reflex at all
