Oh my. I just received my popwing today. There were no props in the box but I had one that worked.
I just can't believe this thing! Intense is the only way I can describe it. Haha

They come with all servos, esc, battery underneath so scrapes on ground when land. He mounts and solders them all on the top so belly landing doesnt damage anything

They are completely Reworked from the ground up. I even modify the airframe like dan said, make practical modifications, and then the power system is about 4 times more powerful, and the speeds are insane as the title says.

Youll just have to order one and find out I havent had a unsatisfied customer yet.

Do you have any left? Just out of curiosity can you get your hands on any of the regular popwings? Having trouble finding those...

I have been trying to keep them in stock I have a few select color choices at the moment. As far as the large models you can just order from nitro planes. They have the arf and kit models available. If you get the kit I can recommended a power system. It wasn't financially practical for me to modify them.

Awesome. Thanks again. I told a few flying buddies about this, so don't be surprised if you get a couple more orders from Utah. That happens so often. Someone shows up with some new plane and then within a month everybody's got one. That's happened with 48-inch combat wings, Alulas, Vapors (and UMF's of several varieties), Weasels, DLG's, IFO's, nightflyers, tricopters, and the list goes on. The best RC advertising is when someone shows up to fly with a fun new plane.

This is a great plane! Well packaged and quickly shipped. Glued on the wingtips, bound it to my tx, and flew! It really was that easy. I was hoping this would be a good replacement for my long-dead mini speedwing and it is!

I love the unlimited vertical. Johnny really did his homework in putting together the right power system for this plane. I also love that when I throttle off, it doesn't drop out of the sky, but glides very well.

Truly a awesome all around great build he made...
I feel the same nothing better then ripping the Sky's apart at blistering speeds of 75mph plus then to just cut the throttle and sore the Sky's for what feels like for ever...

Would i buy more yes i would if i was able to kill this one lol what a tough wing

Johnny great job brother.....
