It's just another Bridge Sky manufactured EZ style model, it's called the Vector 850 and has a V-Tail and sold by Hobby King, it's a very competent sub 1 meter EZ Style model, so this one is nothing new it was just ordered with a standard "X-Tail" configuration but the same model as the HK version:

Also, the Banana Hobby version is too pricey as an RTF, the HK PNF Vector 850 is a great value at around $53:

Well yeah, you might as well collect all of them like me


After this one, you'll need the Bridge Sky/ HK Solo 1500 which is the super slippery 1.5 meter version of the Vector 850, which is another great value:

I bought 2 of these. They needed an ounce in the nose to balance. If anyone knows another way to make it balance, I'd like to know. It flies great, a lot like a full size sky surfer! Also, it is fragile! Any little bump, and crack! They break like a dry twig! A lot of fun though. Fits in my work truck, (don't tell, I should be working)
