Had the XXX for the Frosty Finger Fun Fly today. After the flight it was like a swarm of fans around of celebrity. I had an offer to buy mine and everyone wanted to know where to buy one. I just hope they never stop making them! I love it! 17.5lbs and feels like a foamy in the air!

My Tornado has been sitting in the basement for 18 months since I got a Flash and XXX. I would love to take the K80 out of theTornado and put in another XXX. Only drawback to XXX I can see is also an advantage. That is you don't see need expensive saddle pack style lipos, BUT then the plane drops on its tail in the Pitts when you take the batteries out and if you decide to experiment with different batteries, the CG will change since they are not on the CG like an Electra. other than that, its freakn Bada$$!

Pretty sure they all ship from singapore. That's where my diamonds came from. They make the packs when you order them. It looks like the hv's are no longer listed. Not sure what is going on as they were just announced a few months ago.

I've noticed that some days items show up and then they disappear. It's almost like they only show what they currently have available in production. For example I checked over Christmas and they had nothing listed at all, then yesterday just the 60c Diamonds. I'm sure if I check back Monday it will be different.

Hi all, for those of who moved from using 12S 5000-5300 packs to bigger batteries in the 12S 6000s range and up, does the plane fly much "heavier" and become more difficult to land due to it being less "floaty"?

Best,
Kevin

i have bee flying with cheap 8000mah packs but I'm 10s and getting 8 minutes. However while experimenting with pack placement I guess I did not fasten my engine hatch securely and lost it.

So even though i hate saying it if you have munched a XXX i will be happy to pay for a hatch so i can get back in the air, while waiting for a response from the manuf.
