So what about the 4S 5000?

Comment by Rob_Lefebvre on August 6, 2013 at 10:04am

I love the fact that it has a wheel on the belly to help it belly land without wearing on the foam constantly.  But, it's not to the extent that it has actual landing gear which can be draggy, and fragile.

There should be no problem having more than 5000 mAh 4S inside.

Gary@ I will tell you in 5 days. To me the fuselage looks a little thin in construction so it might have to have a thin layer of composite.

Well I think it will get a thin layer no matter what.

Oh wow, that picture makes it look much bigger than I thought!

I think the wheel with get in the way of the launch, they bungee the real ones so I bet this will struggle from the hand when loaded. That said I fancy one as well.

Agree. If loaded it with 3 kg electronics and lipo I bed a hand launch would need an oversized motor setup. Then again we like oversized stuff.

also the camera should be perpendicular to the fuselage.... so can you fit a Nex 5N in there perpendicular? or do I have to cut and widen the fuse in that section?

Steve@ you will have your tracking number tomorrow. There is still a few left from the first batch.

I really don't know if you can fit in a Nex 5N, but i'm sure you will be the first to know.
