Cody, thank you for the vid! I had to watch it twice because the first time I watched it on my phone, I thought... I think they sped up the video... He can't really fly like that... then I watched it again, and no, you really can fly like that. lol. Guess I just wasn't awake enough for that much awesomeness this morning! Great flying!!! Looks like the Mini won't be lacking any horsepower, that's for sure. You make it look so easy.... lol

No problem Jason! The mini is probably my favorite production airplane right now. It's just a blast to fly and makes a standard gym feel like a full flying field.

So far I would say it is as crashable as the lite. It's almost as crashable as the regular series but because the foam is do thin and the power so high it is possible to tear the foam in a crash. However, it is extremely, extremely durable compared to most small planes like this.

Simple answer is yes. It will harrier at the same speeds.

However, I feel like you are asking more of a wing loading question. The Mini is loaded more similarly to the regular than the lite. So, stall speed on the mini would probably seem faster than the lite.

That's what I was asking. Looks like I need to add the mini to the fleet too.

Care to post the mini next to a 32"?



Also I'm building the edge for my dad's xmas present. I'm kinda dissapointed the servo cut outs are not like the crack yak or pitts.

Going for a late night crack lite session. Got my Motor and ESC back today but the motor is still bad.

Gonna blow off some steam... lately we haven't had good flying weather...mostly high wind and rain and this time of night is the only time we'll see calm flying weather.

EDIT:

Nope Nevermind... .raining again
