VV model Stinger

At kenting f3f last year, we saw the performance of the stinger. it was fast,quality is good, and not too pricey. The hk and tw pilots gave very good feedback, so we did a MO.

After months of waiting, we finally got our hands on VV models Stinger. Made by master craftman , Vaclav Vojtisek, from Czech republic, its was his newest model after the successful ascot and dingo. Heard so much about his workmanship, it was a joy to finally have them in our hands. He lived up to his reputation, the fit and finish is just super.
