You'll notice that the original "Condor v2" thread, even if it has been censored on Thu May 08, 2014 is still one counting most of the views here (31877 and counting).viewtopic.php?f=1&t=4338
It has been started on Thu Aug 24, 2006. My son (who is a grown up boy right now) was born just the day before (23/08/2006).
When looking at him right now I can see how old this topic is. I hope that there will be a Condor V2 before his 10th anniversary, but looking at the information that filtered until now concerning V2 (which is almost non-existent, except the fact that some people pretend to be working on it since years) I wouldn't bet a lot on it...
It may well be the case that there is work been performed on V2, but the problem that I have with the

argument is that I can't imagine them been soooo busy during all those years that they couldn't reveal a single screenshot, or release any substantial info about V2.
V2 is a simply a taboo subject here, you can see how people react when an attempt is made to talk about it.
Asking about V2 here is like going for the banana in the following story :Did you ever wonder how your company's culture – that set of beliefs, traditions, and behavioral norms that determines "the way things work around here" – came to be? Or why, when you try to change it, it seems so resistant? Well, here's a little story about a scientific experiment that shows how culture comes into being and why it is so resistant.
The experimenters began with a cage, a set of externally enforced boundaries. Inside the cage, they hung a banana on a string and placed a set of stairs under it. They then introduced five monkeys into the cage. Before long, one of the monkeys started to climb the stairs toward the banana. As soon as it touched the stairs the experimenters sprayed all the other monkeys with really cold water. When another monkey made an attempt to get the banana they again sprayed the other monkeys with cold water. After a while the monkeys prevented any of their group from going after the banana.
After the cultural prohibition against "going for the banana" had been established the experimenters put away the cold water. They took one of the original monkeys out of the cage and introduced a new one. Upon spotting the banana the new monkey went after it. To its surprise and dismay all of the other monkeys attacked it. After another attempt and attack the new monkey learned that if it tried to climb the stairs and get the banana it would be assaulted and so it stopped going after the banana. It had been acculturated, assimilated into the cage's "don't go for the banana" culture.
Next the experimenters removed another of the original five monkeys and replaced it with another new one. The second new monkey went to the stairs and predictably it was attacked. The first new monkey took part in this punishment with enthusiasm! Similarly a third original monkey was replaced with a new one, then a fourth, then the fifth.
Every time the newest monkey took to the stairs it was attacked by the other monkeys. Most of the monkeys that were beating it had no idea why they were not permitted to climb the stairs or why they were participating in the beating of the newest monkey. After all the original monkeys were replaced none of the remaining monkeys had ever been sprayed with cold water. Nevertheless, no monkey ever approached the stairs to try for the banana. Why not? Because as far as they knew: "That's the way it's always been done around here."
