Seems like I saw a couple of full throttle blenders in the video. Wonder why it didn't fall apart in the air. Fireyfate said it would.

I can do about everything except rolling harriers when flying 3D planes, so I put the plane through a few maneuvers I can fly well. Knife edge is straight with no coupling, so I didnít have to give rudder or elevator input to keep her straight and no aileron input to keep her in knife edge. Hovering was easy and reminded me of my 3DHS Slick. I did a few walls and I think my decision to use an HS-65MG on my elevator prevented me from doing a nice pop to a hover. It was almost there, but I think I could tell there was some blow back. I think an HS-85MG will give me a better wall. The 65's did great on the rudder and the ailerons, just need to change the elevator servo. I only did a couple blenders and they looked good, but I think the HS-65MG had an effect on these as well, so I just spent the rest of the time just getting a feel for the plane. If someone handed me a Tx and said fly this plane without me knowing who made it, after flying it, I would have said that it was from one of the main three (EF, 3DHS, or PA). The Torque 2812 motor on a 14x7 was a perfect selection for me, lots of power when needed and not to heavy of a power system. I just need to get the elevator servo replaced and do some more flying.

I'll see if I can get some video shot this afternoon after work.


Good Info Thanks!

This plane deserves a fresh start . I am very impressed by the flight footage all we need now is spair parts

My hope is now that people actually have the plane we will get real reviews not just a guess based on past hk planes. Let's only put facts in this thread

#12 YellowJacketsRC Feb 17, 2012 10:28 PM

Ryan, I will be surprised if those HS 65's will be adequate. Maybe they will be for the ailerons (but even those will likely experience blow back at high speed) but definitely not for the elevator.....

This plane looks to be fairly capable of violent maneuvers and those 65's just have enough torque IMO...

Just going by every 3D plane they've sold prior to their last two releases. Now if you want to keep this thread clean like the OP asked, hold your tongue here and post in the other.

Can anyone recommend a 3S setup with a motor from HK?
