Why didnt they make it in epo. So it can take a bit more of a beating.

Because the smoother finish of the wings make it go faster. If you want EPO look here: http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...40mm_ARF_.html

BTW, does anyone have the store link for this Dark Wing?

FPV or not, I would be reluctant to fly a composite/built-up belly lander. Those wing panels are going to take some abuse... probably look like the bottom of a skateboard after a few flights. Should be fast though... it has lightning bolts, right?!

I love this design as well! i was wondering what size motor/esc do you think it will take? probably a pretty high Kv rating for speed... i would love to use it for FPV with KK board with OpenAero stabilization.

Are retracks anything like retracts?
