Thanks again Hobbyking. I love these obscure planes! I will be buying this one! Owning one of these will cement my reputation as a nonconformist ! I am a bit suprised that it takes a 3300mah battery.

Really nice looking plane. I am holding out for a Camel, but I'm definitely tempted by this.

Am I the only one who is getting a garbage set of subtitles on this, and the latest flite test video?

Congratulations to HK on a really unusual choice - I look forward to owning one.

Given that the manufacturer has twice as many wings to get warped as on the biplanes I hope this is a particular area of focus for the QC team

Edit: Now I check the garbage titles have started appearing on all the HobbyKing videos

do you mean subtitles? Please pm me with more details and I'll see if i can help you out. We have started adding french subtitles to some of our video's, but this is optional, you can turn it on or off by pressing the 'cc' button on the youtube player. Glad you guy's like the FK10, we hope to be able to film it flying soon but we are suffering the effect of a typhoon this week!

Thanks Stuart. I pressed the CC button and it did indeed turn them off. I'm guessing that while you've put french subtitles up I must have inadvertently put the autotranslator up too and if I'm right it doesn't do a good job of translatinbg french to english.

I didn't know about the CC button but now I do and if anyone else has the same problem, well, now you know the solution.

Wow the Comet then this
That is the way to wake up the RC offerings.
Nice job HK.

This one would really get some attention at the field.

Probably to get the CG right...the nose on this bird is very short, so difficult to balance. 4 wings should easily produce enough lift to handle the heavy Lipo and flight times might be very long...

cheers

well, at least this shows that anytthing is possible from Hobby King! Maybe some day we can be treated to a nice Gotha bomber or Vickers Vimy.
