  • I know it well! You’re the one who deleted my comment and I’m totally wrong about the name but that’s the only thing. It’s the foxtech baby shark, not nimbus and it is junk. Look what it’s made up of and the components. It looks like an aesthetic copy of component and wiring wise to get to the vtol motors and the wiring spec used bs current to them and adapters. It looks like a penguin wing in vtol form. I don’t get why people keep saying they are releasing “their” plane. It’s another companies with a maybe your camera on it as an option? So you’re a reseller or something but at least tell those out here who may not know it’s not something you made or yours or anything like that. Respect is due when something’s not misleading but that is worse.
  • Show some respect when you comment.

    Do not call it "junk" before you get to know it!

    FW250 is definitely not a rebranded NIMBUS VTOL, it supports max 2KG payload,12KG takeoff weight, made of carbon fiber and glass fiber, not that foam plane.

  • Deleted my comment! Ha!


    People have a right to know what they're getting.
