The wife took a quick video of the Cuda for me yesterday. Such a fun little plane and tough as nails.

This one, original prototype, has been abused relentlessly. Round after round of full contact combat, multiple high speed crashes, mid airs, you name it. Its also the plane I hand to people who are interested in buying one from me. More than once its come back in more than one piece. A little hot glue and its back in the air in minutes.

Setup:
1800 kv outrunner, 7x4 APC prop, Castle Creations Thunderbird 18, 3S 1300 lipo and two 9 gram servos. 200 watts and 18 amps (static).

My DX-7 (original version) is getting a bit rough around the edges. Still works, most of the time, but, still rough.

Well, the wife decided that a DX7 wasnt good enough for me. Today, a big ol box sitting in my chair when I got home. Opened it up, and there was my new DX-18! Yes, 18 (and 9ch RX) This thing is friggin awesome!

Cant wait to try it out.

Thanks to my lovely wife... sure do love her!
