Hobbyking Shark High Performance Racer/Glider 1228mm Composite

Hey ALL

I think we all need a thread started for this bird....

The Hobbyking Shark is a high performance hybrid glider/pylon racer with distinctive F3A styling, this ARF version allows you to fit your own set up, perfect for the ultra speed freaks!
The airframe is composed of a Fiberglass fuselage AND wing, which is a removable 1pc item, only the horizontal stabilizer/elevator are balsa. The finish is quite superb and durable, there is no doubt, it looks fast, which is just as well, it IS fast! A model this quick needs to be well built and no corners have been cut, ailerons are "live" hinged & all the included hardware is sturdy and good quality for reliability and performance.
The Hobbyking Shark racer offers an unbeatable combination of low price, quality, good looks, practicality, ease of assembly and durability. When fitted with an ultra high performance set up, the Shark offers amazing performance that will keep even the most hardcore speed merchants happy!

Maidened her today....wow she is fast,....so fast I couldnt even go full throttle i went as far as 3/4 and then a tid bit more...it was already smoking the funjets out of their misery.....ill need to flush the elevator to the rear horizontal stablizer some more before I take her up again...

my telementary system was reading 142mph....the radar gun reads 137mph....

Has anyone else picked up one of these, or the Arrow which looks like exactly the same plane? I wouldn't mind knowing how the PNP version flies.
