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. This ARF version is ideal as a replacement airframe or as a home for maybe the parts out of another EDF that has come to a sticky end, also this ARF version offers the spead freaks a chance to build an ultra-Stinger!
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". This ARF version allows you to build to your own specs, but it is important to remember that the reccomended set up should be regarded as the minimum you can use in order to get the best of it, likewise, we would advise those looking for high performance to try and keep the flying weight as low as you can get away with in order to not ruin the superb aerobatic performance of the Stinger 64. We think that this jet has massive potential for a truly ballistic yet rock solid performer, let the fun begin!

Took some time to ship due to being a JIT item but once shipped it arrived pretty quick. Have to say I am very happy with the plane, the quality is very good for a $50 kit. The paint on my kit is excellent, don't flake or chip and the stickers seem to stick well. Everything just screws together, no glue needed at all. I put a RCLander 64mm 4000kv alloy setup, will be using Nano-tech 4s 2200 mah. Should go very well. Thanks HobbykingGreat if you want to add your own Quality hardware, but beware one of the elevator servos does need to be reversed prior to the Y harness, otherwise you may get stuck. Aircraft flies well even @ 840 gramsi bought this air frame because my first stinger turned into a ground magnet it arrived well packet with no damage the red colour scheme looks very well the over all build was easy enough the only thing was missing was the double sides tape to hold the small back canopy but this was no big dealusually sended in 3 days...........how long is a day for you hobbyking??
paid the object the 13th, today is 21th......................Using a 3000 mah nano tech 4s battery and a plush amp esc with a dons wicked motor and wow super fast with 5 min flights i have to use throttle control to keep from killing the battery. I should get more speed going with a higher c discharge battery. Ordering a 60 to 120 c 4s 2200 mah and will let you know the results.
Sweet edf for the money i highly recomend this one!Rpido e muito estvel. Utilizo motor de 4800kv, bateria 2200-3S, esc 60A plush. Espao um pouco apertado para colocao da bateria, recpetor e fios, mas recomendo. Material mto resistente.Let me start with this: RECOMMENDED FOR EVERY EDF NUT!
Awesome jet! Looks really great (but I'm not going to comment on the stickers). Flies super straight at high speed and glides well for landings!
Stock settings (PNF version) of a friend seems a bit underpowered. I put a 3800kV motor with a 1600 4S battery and a 50A red brick into mine drawing 550W and has more thrust than weight (i.e. vertical takeoffs are theoretically possible, but haven't tried yet...). Otherwise very fast! Must get more power....!!!
Ailerons - 55pcnt travel with 20pcnt expo
Rudder - 60pcnt travel with 0pcnt expo
Elevator - 90pcnt travel with 0pcnt expo
The rudder and ailerons are very potent and responsive but the elevator feels very sluggish.
Good job HK! Thank you!Great EDF Jet, compact size, easy to asemble, ready in minutes. The Stinger 64 looks in the air great,the red colour is better to see. The stock setup is ok even on a 3s 2200 45-90c nanotech, you will have a hot esc but it will handle.(for a first jet) ...if you know edf, make your own 4s setup and get just the airframe. The decals are totally usless(4*, they peel off out of the box, get ready for this :) Great value, for a great size park jet, capable of many manouvers as biger habu 1, nice low passes, great modification possibilities,100pcnt Fun!Come on hobbyking!! Why go through the trouble of making such a nice jet and then put crappy stickers on it. We have been complaning about this for a long time now. Next time u stock up have some better stickers put on!!Erster Eindruck ist sehr gut. Das Modell ist fr den weiten Transport vorbildlich verpackt. Die Oberflche ist sehr glatt. Der Flgel ist an einem Stck und wird von unten verschraubt.Die Schrauben werden in eingeklebte Holzplttchen geschraubt.
Bin begeister von der Qualitt!
