Twin 70mm SU47 360 Thrust Vectoring
 
I assumed this would be posted up by now but haven't seen a main thread on it. I know ET was stating they were getting them in that video that was posted but looks like BH is going to have them too. I'm not a fan of BH as of late, but more vendors is always better for us.

The gear at least looks better than the 90mm Starmax F18, that is for sure. Can't wait to see Pete pull that VTOL off. :rolleyes: :p

Already sold out!

I'll be looking for the airframe. There's no reason twin 70mm fans need a 6s setup and the AUW is listed as almost 4.5 lbs. I'll use 3000-3200kv motors with two 4s packs and try to come in around 3.5 lbs. like my SU-34. And are those cheaters or air brakes on top?

#4 Sid3ways Aug 17, 2009 07:00 PM

Doesn't look big enough to be a cheater or an airbrake to me. If they were smart, maybe the ESCs sit underneath there.

#5 anthodenn Aug 17, 2009 08:50 PM

That's what I'm thinking, that the ESCs are situated somewhere under those.


I don't think they really mean that they're sold out. I think BH hasn't gotten them in and or hasn't gotten the inventory set up yet.

But it sure looks awesome!!

YES it DOES!!!!!!!!!!!

Ill be getting mine from easytiger for sure. Banana hobby is not even an option in my eyes!

#8 gundamnitpete Aug 18, 2009 03:03 AM

looks promising, if it's got greater than 1:1 i might be down.

#9 lavochkin Aug 18, 2009 03:35 AM

It is suppose to have greater than 1.1 with the stock stuff. You can always change that. LOL!!!! Add a gyro and have a 1.5.1 thrust to weight so ya can pull out of a hover and accelerate vertically. I love this jet as its one of my favorites. The problem for me is I get my hopes and expectations up to high and then once I get the model I am let down as far as my standards go. Hopefully this one will not be like that.

Just went to EasyTiger, and didn't find it. Are you sure they will stock it? No placeholder for backordering that I could latch onto.

I'm going to assume the plane's launch date is well off into the future. That is probably why BH won't even accept pre-orders like they always do.

BH won't have these for a really long time. Easytiger is supposed to get them soon from what I've heard. I just went through the Easytiger site and saw a 70mm XB-70. That thing is sick looking. I guess that with foam and EDF just about anything can be modeled and flown. Here's the pics of the XB-70. There's video on the site too.

That valkyrie looks horrible with the wings flat. Also why partially paint the exhaust so it looks cheaper than it already is.

#14 CarreraGTSCS Aug 18, 2009 06:21 PM

It's just a cheap Chinese foamy not a Top Gun competitor. Do you think angling the tips down would make it handle poorly?

I get a funny feeling that it will want to get stuck inverted.
