I do not see the ES V1 kits available anywhere, only the RTF. Do some internet searching and you might be able to find the parts. BP hobbies has most everything except for the fuse. This company appears to have the fuse in stock (I have never used this company). http://www.rchobbyexplosion.com/Mult...mpum224193.htm

It's available in Europe ($40 kit version), but I don't know about the US.

The EZ2 power system options and recommendations are listed at least 20 times in the EZ2 thread. If you can't be bothered to look it up, then the quick reply is: 2830mm, 1100KV outrunner driving the well designed, stock 7x6 folding prop, 3S LiPo and 30A ESC.

MPX ES2 vs Hitec Sky Scout COG differences.

I recently bought a Hitec Sky Scout and my LHS ordered me a Multiplex East Star 2, so far they seem identical but the instructions show different center of gravity. The ES2 shows 78mm and the SS shows 85mm. I haven't built them yet so i'll see if all the parts are truly the same.

This is my first flight and flying video of the year the other week in the snow, using my trusty EasyStar one with added ailerons.

Nice eagle footage! I've flown with them once or twice but never captured video. Good camera quality, too.

Nice, I do love those HK wing cams. Haven't tried V2 yet, but I will. They're great for getting different angles and views, stick 'em pretty much anywhere.

Great. A joy to watch.
I got a refund on my dodgy HK wing cam and got a #18 key fob. Not flown it yet, crappy weather, but static test looks OK

I don't think my fading eyes would even see my model at 1500ft+... Are you sure you zeroed it before take off?
