Nice bird, but why are there no specs or requirements?

Well until just now there wasn't even a picture lol. First I have seen of it. I assume the 1M is the wing span. If so it will be a nice size. Looks nice and light. I suppose it will be spec'd for the rimfire 10 or possibly the 15.

If anyone remembers the Seagull X-Ray this look exactly like it except for the cowling and obviously the covering scheme. I though the X-Ray was a good flying plane, miss mine and hope this flies like it. Look forward getting one when they are released.

Any reports? Cost really adds up if using S3156 servos! I have had good results with S3114's in other planes. Does this one really need high torque digital servo?

They are just released. I hope to order mine in a day or two. I wont go with the 3156's. I may try the new Tactic digital mg servos. My focus will be to keep things light.

I ordered Solar D654 servos; digital, mg, bb. $8.50 vs $38 for S3156 is a no-brainer. Several guys in the club use Solar servos and happy with them.

Hobbypartz.com. A little heavier than S3156 but otherwise specs are nearly same. I think the D654 case is a little larger but enlarging the servo cutouts should fix that. Hope I'm not missing something. I plan to use 3s 1800mah Lipo. My MiniContender with same motor and ESC has good vertical performance with 1800mah.

This looks to be a nice 3D/precision hybrid, similar in size and function to the Fliton Inspire Mini. There are unfortunately very few aircraft of this size and type, so this is a quite welcome addition for small fields and ultra convenient, low-cost flying. Definitely interested.

I was thinking the same thing. Looks very similar to some of the Fliton planes. I still have a Fliton Extra 300, and a Jumping Jack.

Bazillions. Their shouldn't be a problem making most of the 9g type servos fit. I would make sure they are a good quality digital servo. Metal gears would be a plus at least on elevator and rudder.
