Haven't seen one, haven't flown one...but it sure looks nice! It's hard to tell from the pictures but the fuselage looks like it will be tough to fit batteries in there...not impossible, but not easy either...kind of like a Mini Ellipse, in that respect. Sounds like a perfect fit for a Hacker B40-8S on 7-8 CP-1300s! Why don't you get one and try it out. :D

Oh, and one more thing...the nose looks a little short. Hopefully it's long enough to clear a 12-13" prop.

I'm guessing you could stuff about 10 CP1300s in there, and swing a 13-14" prop. I've got the slope version, but it has a different (much smaller) fuselage, so I can't do any experimenting for you.

The Mini NYX is the follow-on to the Nemesis, and it's beautifully done - ought to be a real go-er.

One of my customers is using a geared Hacker and 10 CP1700 cells.
It all fits jut barely. He is waiting for some digital servos to arrive to fly.

10 CP1700 cells would be about max size that will fit through the canopy opening.

Hi Tom,
Just curious...can you measure from the firewall to the wing LE?

Thought I would resurrect this thread...

Anyone flown one of these as an electric? Looks gorgeous...
