The Stinger 64 certainly has style, a great looking and flying EPO Sport jet that is a great size to throw in the car and go and have fun.
The EPO construction & pre-applied decals are all excellent quality, in fact as you are assembling the Stinger your confidence grows with it, everything is just "right". Assembly time is really fast, with servos, EDF & ESC all being pre-installed. The aileron servo arms are protected by covers, there are hand launch pockets molded into the under-wing, really strong magnets for the canopy & a nice clean battery bay where everything fits just so, this jet has been really well thought out. The supplied 2.4ghz radio is pre-bound to the pre-fitted reciever and ready to go, the radio features trims, channel reverse and tail mixing for other models.
The Stinger looks great and manages to fly even better than it looks! There is a servo per elevator and of course the Stinger has an effective rudder as all Sport Jets should, all of the servos are mounted at the rear with short control rods, the end result is precision. This jet is so capable, it is fast for a 3s/64mm class Jet but has a large flight envelope and is quite happy flying at low speed, ultra stable and ultra predictable, it is ideal for the new jet pilot but wind it up and it becomes a brilliant aerobatic model which is where the Stinger really excels. Jet aerobatics always look exciting and there is nothing the Stinger can not do and almost effortlessly. Stinger 64 just can not be bettered in this class of jet, it has it all, looks, performance, price & quality, just make sure you take plenty of packs to the field, this jet is totally addictive!

Just received mine in the post today. Very well packaged, a quick look tells me that it's a quality product for the price (value for money).
It's to windy today to go flying, so I will have plenty of time for construction tonight.
Standby for a flight review soon.what a great plane for the price. mine (with turnigy plush 40 amp esc) will take of from the slick mat with no landing gear. the ESC is very weak in this bird and the way the servos are embedded in the horizontal stabilizer the tail is easily damaged in a crash..other than the weak esc this is an awesome plane for the money...50-60 mph on stock set up..maybe faster but not much...I gig one star because failed esc cause a crash. i have repaired the plane and ate the esc because of shipping costs. HK doesn't replace without returning the old part contrary to the add.
