You two are not the only folks with those views......I do not share your views.
You are among the lucky folks. You should be happy.
I definitely do wish the new F-27Q well, it is here to stay.
This thread has gone too far to even think about ending it or having it merge with F-27C thread at this point.
What I found even worse on the F-27 were the servos and the weak clevises/pushrods.
Ever seen the plastic nipple on the 1 cent stock Clevis break on your Stryker and again on your friends' Strykers and just watch otherwise perfectly good planes go down?
(Those were not the high powered Strykers, we run 2-56 rods on them)
At least with a broken motor mount you can still guide and land the plane....or tape a motor down with 3M Extreme tape to have one last flight in the day (ask me how I know
Attached pic was from my last Stryker flight in California with my buddies before I moved to East Coast. Nothing was going to stop me from one more flight….I propped it up to 1000W range on 3S.
Thanks for posting the video....the new bird looks pretty quick.
