Website shows A5 as in stock. I'm inclined to try it.
Anyone else?

Got mine from a few weeks back. Nothing major. The tail ratio should be higher than stated. 3.86 mine is 4.66 ish. Only issues is the belt guide holes need slotted to get alignment good on belt. If not it makes a bad sound. Flys a little lighter than the 5.5. Kit does come with full and mini servo holders. I may end up with 2 kits at some point. O and the canopy needed cut at the bottom to fit. Seen my post on the other HF.

I almost clicked but its a secretive site, devoid of any information regarding the physical location of the company selling it. Typically when they hide out like that its nothing but trouble.

I hope the A5 and A7 both do well in the market. It seems the main manufacturers have all the market share and the smaller companies have gone under.
Not sure what is going on with Synergy\Yintech but I hope it doesn’t cause Synergy to go under.

It should not. KDSUSA https://www.kdsmodelsusa.com/ has received 1 of 2 shipments. They first looks to be up on the site now. I am still waiting a few other parts to show instock to make a order. The canopy shown in stock part number is the blue part number when cross refenced. I hope the get more canopy colors for the A7. I know I can custom canopy order but would be nice if they have one in stock soon.

I made a nitro version of the Agile 5.5
The A5 looks much better suited to such a conversion so....
I'll be ordering 2 kits and build one as electric and start the process of designing a nitro counterpart.
If it flies lighter than 5.5, maybe the decreased weight will make the nitro fly better.
The 5.5 nitro was SUCH a unique aircraft. But, I like the belt, open undercarriage, etc. of the A5.

Chris - I'd love to see your Nitro 5.5 conversion. Do you have pics?
I had a 5.5 for several years, but got tired of the battery removal process, and heavy airframe. The A5 looks to be a great airframe, but not as unique as the 5.5 was. Any idea if 5.5 support/parts will continue?
