Freewing Stinger 64 HP or something else

Just watched this:
Freewing Stinger 64 HP 4S Flight Review from Motion RC (6 min 35 sec)


Think I've found it here:
http://www.bananahobby.com/4-ch-free...ueryId=1342527

Although it's out of stock. Is it still available and is it recommended?

I like the price and the size of it and the performance , having watched the vid above. Any recommendations?

I have the older 3S version with a hopped up Don's RC fan / motor combo, same airframe. Spectacular flier, really good. It is very fast and nimble so you should have some skills <g>. Many at the local club field show up with these, love the way they fly, but wreck em quickly...

Sure, if you're after a quick and nimble compact EDF this one is hard to beat for only $99 complete.

I had the old 3S version upgraded to 4S on approx. 650watts and it was a lot of fun, really helps out with your edf skills for later

Just wish in addition to going to a 4S fan and MG servos they went with a nice sounding 10 blade fan, not a huge fan of that sound..

Thanks. Is there a dedicated thread for these? I had a look but could only see the 90mm one mostly.

BTW, is this red Stinger from Bannahobby the same as the pink one Hobbyking sell? Any differences? I've got on well with HK in the past, just not sure about the dreadful colour scheme.

Airframe is the same, whether the servo's are the same or not I do not know. Mine came from Hobby King. If Motion RC has em in stock I would go there, free shipping > $100, excellent service as well. Although I see you are in the UK, that may make a difference...
