EasySky micro FW190D "Dora". DSM2 compatiable

I was going to put this thread on the Micro Ready-to-Fly forum but I feel it would be of more interest here.

I just received my new EasySky micro FW190D "Dora". As with the other models in the series this one is DSM2 compatible. So you can bind it to any DSM2 radio system. Like a DX9.
It is a ready to fly model. So it comes with a 4 channel radio... Actually you might call it a 6 channel radio because it has a switch that can disable the gyro and an knob to adjust the gyro sensitivity. Which is a big step above the UMX stuff. It also comes with a 150mAh lipo. Plus a USB charger.

And... Hell! They made a D-9 "Dora". That is awesome in itself!

The quality is very impressive. On par with the UMX micros.

Specs:
Wingspan: 16.14in / 410mm
Length: 15.55in / 395mm
Flying Weight: 50g / 1.76oz
Servo: 1.7g speed
Battery: 1S 3.7V 150mAh 25C Li-Po
Motor: 8.5x20mm; 50,000RPM

Currently the only retailer that is selling this model is Amain.com. Which is a sports and hobby store in Chico California. So far their customer support has been very good. They offer a $1.99 shipping rate.

I plan to re-paint this model in the scheme of Jagdverband 44 (JV 44). Which was a special fighter unit of top German fighter ace pilots in the Luftwaffe during the last months of World War II. The FW190D's were used mostly to protect the Messerschmitt Me 262 jet fighter. Especially during landing. When the jets were most vulnerable.

I already have Callie Graphics working up the decals.

I most likely will maiden the plane "as is" since I am waiting for the decals to show up. I will post videos.

Apparently the USPS has hijacked or confiscated mine...
It should not take 7 days to get here from Chico. It is only 200 miles.
It is annoying although I did not need it for this weekend.

Yes, I did get it. Only took 11 days to travel ~200 miles! I had no trouble binding it to my DX9.

Maiden is planned for Saturday. We are planning a get together of lots of planes to include mini B-17s, P-38s, two FW190Ds as well as other aircraft. I am bringing one of my FMS B-25s and maybe my 1875mm B-17. Weather is looking to be favorable.

I maidened the EasySky FW190D on Saturday. What a cool little plane! Just as easy as the B-17 and P-38. EasySky has definitely got some winners here. Here is my maiden. The skies were cloudy in the am so the little FW blended well.

Yes to both. It is not a speed demon by any means.
