Good deal..
for what it's worth, IMO, the 25c Nano packs act more like 15c packs
and no one in my FE club would dare run them in a race boat
but the 45c and bigger Nano packs are good
and even the regular 40c Turnigy packs are awesome!

Just did as well, and noticed something VERY scary... In their video, the antenna is almost touching the data pin of the throttle output on the receiver! Not sure I would want to fly an airplane like that!

Would check mine before flying for sure, though I suspect that's simply a prototype, quickly put together for the show... Personally, I think this airplane could use the AS3X technology as well (particularly if it's tweaked by QQ on top of that, he did such an awesome job on the Beast), but at the same time, it would be very nice to be able to fly it without it as well (not sure a Blender would go hand to hand with AS3X...). So HH, start thinking about using the gear switch to disable/enable AS3X in flight, and start using it in airplane like this one (and bigger!)

Yes I agree!!! The ability to turn off an on ASX from the tranny would be AWSOME and at least different pre set settings of ASX would be great as well. Times when you want it And times when you don't ,, kinda comparable as to how different people and in different conditions prefer different rates and different amount of expo

For those commenting on the video, it was flown by Colton Clark, not Quique. He did a great job!

No AS3X... then it's not for me. I'll stick to my Beast and SBach. For larger sizes I fly the EPP stuff and a balsa plane. It's a nice in between size, fills a niche, but at 8 oz. wind will be a problem, hard to do extreme aerobatics this size with the wind is fighting it. I'm sure its a great plane but, might as well get the new SBach.

Why is everyone complaining about no AS3X. I mean I like it on the smaller stuff like my Mig and Beast, but this is bigger, heavier, and faster. AS3X is not needed. The FunFighters from Sky Angel are the same size. In fact my Rare Bear had a 24" wing span where this is 26". Wind didn't bother it.

No offense, but let go of the crutch and start learning to really fly.

because besides needing planes that come built and ready to fly...... alot of people want planes that can fly themselves too....or at least come close....
