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.

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!

What is the flying skill level required?  Beginner or intermediate?

Comment by Steve K on August 13, 2013 at 9:19pm
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

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

Comment by Btanny on September 16, 2013 at 9:09pm

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
