  • I'll post up some pictures when I get home from work.
  • yea mine was beat up perty good to back 2 inches of the wing tip was broke but a lot of dings  was wanting to cover it with that carbon vinyl any ways

    Could you please show some pictures?
  • Just received mine in the mail and I have to say there are some things I am less then impressed about:

    -I ordered black EPO foam. NOT white EPO foam RESPRAYED BLACK.

    -The packaging could be better. This would avoid slight damage to the tips of the wings at the trailing edges.

    - Fit could be a hell of a lot better. I am going to have to trim a fair few bits of foam so the fuselage fits together.

    Having said all that, I am looking forward to the build immensely.

  • not yet still working on missing parts and carbon strips in the wings 

  • Mine is on order. Has anyone fitted retract gear/retract nose skid ? if so what did you fit and how did it go ?

    I did see on rcgroups a guiy made a dolly for take off. I intyent to cover mine in 3m carbon vinyl any feedback on this is it a good or bad idea ?


    I think that this airframe opens up a new challenge for drones. Longest X8 auto flight. Take off, cruise and landing hehe !!


    I intend to run mine with an fpv camera and the camera tracking code set with an HD hero mounted in the nose with pan and tilt. I want to mees with the code a bit to create a new script element that will allow camera tracking of the active waypoint :-)

    Thanks in advance.
