E-flite's New Carbon-Z Scimitar.... WOW!
WOW! have you seen this
looks like a Stryker on STEROIDS
The E-flite Carbon-Z Scimitar is true satisfaction for the RC pilot who desires flight performance and adrenaline pounding excitement previously thought impossible from a conventional aircraft platform. The fantasy-scale Carbon-Z Scimitar, designed by world aerobatic champion Quique Somenzini, bursts open the performance envelope with an evolutionary compound-delta flying wing. At the heart of the advanced Carbon-Z Scimitar is a specially tuned Q-Power system harnessed inside a revolutionary single-axis, vectored-thrust propeller system. In combination with the precision of carbon rod hinged elevons and twin rudders, a refreshing level of maneuverability can be explored after less than an evening’s worth of assembly time.

this thing looks super cool and i love that it has retracts.
But for the price of it i could could have 2 or 3 planes.
Just cant justify this one.
I already have a parkjet mkII. It just needs a 3s and it should be alot more fun.
