Отличный самолёт. Использую 2s li-po до 500 mah. Более ёмкие слишком тяжелые. Винт GWS 9*5. Висение, полёты на ноже - все легко. Очень ремонтопригодный. Летаю только летом. Уже 5 лет. Двигатель родной из набора. Сервы HXT 900 - элероны, HXT 500- рули. Научил детей летать на нём. Советую к приобретению.Excellent value and a great flyer......3s 460mah with a GWS EP 9x5......perfect for out door 3D!!!
cheers RobThis is a very decent flyer with minimal need for channel mixing. Motor is plenty powerful, using rhino 3s 610 mah. Fly 1/3to1/2 throttle, seldom more. Motor and esc barely get warm. It flies very light, and precision is surprising, even with mild wind. With a dive or higher throttle, ailerons will flutter, so will have to stiffen those up. I have been pleasantly surprised by this one. Not good for beginners, but with any experience, it is not hard to fly. Very, very good value at this price.Great plane. Had 3 of them. Some mods. Extend all servo arms by 30mm . Cut out foam in vertical stabiliser (circle part) so elevator gets movement all the way to the struts and crank up movement control on servo to hold elevator against the wind as wind from prop will blow down surfaces. Do the same for rudder by cutting corners off elevator to give more rudder throw. Max out movement on aileron and you now have a 'weapon' to really enjoy!!!i had trouble with this one. build was fairly simple but cutting all the carbon fiber and glueing it together was a pain in the butt. hot glue seemed to work the best. it flew great besides one problem which was the ailerons. i dont know if it was just my flying or because i was flying outside but the ailerons were crap. did not respond at all like a 3d plane should. the elevator and rudder had plenty authority but the ailerons need work with my experience with this. and if you do buy it fly with a 3 cell. much better performance from the motor. the plane is great for the price though.I suppose you get what you pay for? This is really only good for indoors. You can hover outdoors, but trying to fly at any speed it shutters. The wind beats it up. The control surfaces are flimsy so it's like flying a towel. Very unstable. But like I said, you get what you pay for. It's good for practicing hovering and inverted flight, but don't expect a real flyer.I am a bigginer 3d pilot and was trying to find a nice cheap 3d plane to start out with....it wasnt exactly the easiest plane to put together..there were many times i felt like i needed alot more than 10 fingers to get this plane built, and the instructions were awful....however, it didnt take as long as i thought it was going to...and when i did finally get it up and flying i felt like the ailerons werent as responsive as i thought they should be...the plane also liked to dip to the side that the battery is mounted on no matter how much counter trim you put in...but for someone who is just getting into the 3d chapter its not a bad plane...i had this thing hovering and doing knife edges as soon as i got it in the air...i have flown it 4 times now and even brought it in close enough to catch it....i highly doubt i will buy another one though....i just wasnt as impressed with the straight line flying as i thought i should beLeicht aufzubauen. Leicht zu fliegen. ABER. der vom EU warehouse mitgelieferte Motor enspricht nicht dem Bild im Shop bzw der Anleitung. Vom Support fehlt bis heute die Antwort zu den technischen Daten des mitgelieferten Motors. Bild vom Motor mit mutmasslichen Angaben unter "files" der Motor knnte gerne etwas mehr Bumms haben
Great airplane for the money! Assembly was interesting. The foam is very flimsy, think wet noodle! But built on a flat table and after adding the CF rod, it's surprisingly rigid. Included motor with 8x4 prop and 500 2S Lipo gave all the power I needed. Flies very well. I find the aileron adequate, some seem to complain about them. Fun to fly in my yard and have flown it in the airplane hangar where I work. Might buy a few more at this price!
I could fly it straight away after three flights and some trim I am rolling, looping, harriering, knife edging, sort of hovering not mastered it yet (I think there is a trick to that). 750mh 3 cell and 8x3.8 prop in strong wind works well. I used hing tape worked well with 3m 77 spray and 3m 77 spray to glue large foam surfaces together and CA with kicker for the rest. give all control surfaces maximum throw. kit made of 5mm EPP. parts fit excellent. Nice building-instruction provided.
