  • @ Steve K - have you flown it yet? Comments, videos?

  • Will APM work on this ?  What is max weight ?  Any suggestions for lifting max payload? I'm thinking a of using Tmotor 3515 -400kv witha  16x5 blade or a Kopterworx kw8 motor (710 kv) with a 14x7 blade or a axi 2820-14 with a 14x5 blade

  • Did anybody get a nex5, nex6, or nex7 to fit?

  • I have the kit in hand quality is excellent really nice HOWEVER if this is epo it certain ally is not the best epo I have seen, I actually had trouble believing it was epo at all....

    Nex does not fit but that's ok I plan to do some mods anyway
  • What is the flying skill level required?  Beginner or intermediate?

  • Still have some in stock?


  • I got an email saying the plane is on it's way.... thanks Robert for actually having stock and not listing it until you do.... and for such fast service.


  • How do the wings attach? They just snap in place and then you slide them forward to unlock them?

    EDIT: Zooming in on the photo it looks like they can be glued in place? No way to make them easily removable for transport? Cool plane!

  • 100KM

    Always interesting to see new platforms become available.  The wings must have quite a bit of chord to make a 1718mm span look that stubby.

  • awesome thanks for actually having stock!

    I imagine I have to do some mods

    can you tell me be weight of foam an spars and wood only? I won't be installing landing gear etc
