Eye saw the 2019 XR6 today

XR5 Eye2.jpg
The 'All seeing Eye' or Eye of Horus was a sacred symbol said to protect anyone or thing behind it.
Some people used it on boats as a protection symbol ensuring a safe journey at sea.
With all my crashing carnage - I need all the protection eye can get :thumb:
Looks great how they subtly used a little artwork and colour to spice up the kite...

Sorry to disappoint there won't be XR6's anytime soon and at the very earliest June July next year, just how do you improve on the current XR5?
Core will not release anything unless it's better, nor do they operate model years. They also use all white or all black prototypes if they do venture anywhere likely to be recorded on camera.

As I said back then, not until June at the earliest despite some lame magazine telling everyone they were in production back in February..and it's every two years, the XR5 was launched in 2017. So if it launches in June, it'll be two years..and I have heard that yes, they have managed to squeeze even more performance from it...

If it will be released in June then it WAS already in production in February.

So your suggestion? Keep it quiet and tell no-one?
