It will depend on if we will make some more changes before the release. Since I am very happy with the way the plane flies, I don't think there will be any major changes.

Let's wait for what groovejet and nac have to say about the plane. I'm sure they will feed us with great videos!

Before that, I have VR Eyedoc's flight to present: :-)

Looks like it flies very nicely. Knife edge doesn't look to be compromised much by going to a rounded fuse. Rolls are crisp. I want one!

Groove and Nac, looks like you've been put on the clock (golf term).

Very nice flying, Michael and great videoing, Max . I like the colour in the sky in the video. The plane seems to do very fast and crisp rolls, so I am confident that I am going to like it. I probably won't have my plane ready to maiden until next weekend. I'm sure those 6 days will go very quickly and I will be flying this plane very soon. I'll be flying it without the SFGs.

Woohoo, VR Eyedoc sent me the videos of my flying from his smart phone! Here is the very first one, shot outside China, I guess:

Feda,

Can you add video of this plane doing back to back violent manuevers at high speed to see if the magnets holding the wings to the fuse are strong enough.

Thanks

Rolling about this speed should be a good test, if possible. Of course, I've never gotten any of my full fuse EPPs to roll this fast in a blender.

Great flying Feda! You were wearin' it out. Interesting music too. This plane looks like it still floats around like the 39 - 48" box fuse foamies and flies with similar characteristics even though it has a full fuse. It looks very fun to fly.

I like the wing magnets but as soon as this plane gets into our hands, we will find a way to rip the wings off in flight. It's what we do. Pop tops, blenders and full throttle crankshafts, baby! Woot! It's not exactly what I consider 3D... I'd call it extreme aerobatics but that's what we want out of our planes.

Well, I tried. The wing didn't get ripped off, but the motor refused to work in the end. Take a look at this video:

More great videos . Thanks for sharing, feda and VR Eyedoc.

My plane is almost ready. I'm waiting on some new long servo arms that I'd like to try on this plane. If they don't arrive soon then I'll just use some of the long servo arms that I usually use on these sorts of planes.

My AUW is 1260g without servo arms and EZ connectors.

This plane looks fantastic! It's easily the best looking foam plane out of the dozens and dozens that I have owned .

This looks like an excellent replacement for my poor MXS. I love the MXS but in the short time I've had it's had a hard life. I managed to dumb thumb it in and tear the nose off again yesterday. It's just so hard not to push this plane past my ability, but that's what I bought it for. No biggie, should have it back together in no time flying good as new.
