Hi Johan, We already have a long wing Whisper, and have now purchased a Whisper eXpress kit. So will have both! The Whisper eXpress is the same as the Whisper X. :D :D :D

Looking good :)

Keep us updated ;)

I still need to order a couple of the more expensive items from Spruce, like wheels and brakes. Seems the R/$ is just not getting better.

Enjoy,

Pieter
