Tx Juice Stunt Plane

Here's a new plane just in at ToysR Us, and target. Seems to be a 2.4Ghz actuator plane. Looks like they decided to give it throttle, rudder and a button just to actuate the ailerons for rolls. Interesting. Note the side force generators on the wings, obviously designed based on many hobby grade planes (at least looks wise). I thought I'd share this with you guys since quite a few of us still like actuator planes. The gear may well be harvested for other projects. The plane it's self is EPP which makes it a tough little bird and possibly good for modding with the ailerons already attached. I don't know the weight, wingspan etc. I've seen the video and it seems to fly a bit strange since it has no dihedral in the wings, but it does roll.

So no elevator? must be like a 2.5 channel designation or something. We'll see if it's priced well enough to blow on a toy grade for some fun.

This ain't no Carbon Cub that's for sure. Not even close! This is really just a toy. Being that it's so small the challenge of putting hobby grade gear in it or using the gear for other smaller projects is what I'm interested in. Looks like the thing is really small. Price is $39. Maybe it will be cheaper after the holidays. I have just about every iteration of Parkzone/eflite plane there is, all in boxes gathering dust. I enjoy them all but have gotten bored lately. I don't even buy stuff from the LHS anymore. I almost miss the bit charger days of yore. This thing with it's actuator rudder (no elevator, throttle is the elevator) yet it has 2.4ghz radio instead of IR is sort of a Flashback to the Future kind of thing. Battery size judging from the manual looks to be 50mah or lower. So the gear may be very light.

I've seen that one for the past couple years and have not bitten due to it's price. I also wanted to put some parkzone gear in it. I just could not part with 40 bucks plus tax just for a donor plane. Yeah this one is the same price, but should go on clearance after the holidays. Airhogs never seem to go down in price if they sell or not.

tried it , has a lot more power than air hogs stuff, i never used the juice button so i just taped the ailerons straight and now it has a lot more wing area, i got it to climb to 30 meters until i was loosing sight. It becomes a lot more stable if you remove the vertical pieces on the front of the wings,
its a fun plane to mod to a 3 channel receiver, which I'm going to do, by the way the i'm going to move the rudder actuator to the elevator so im going to have aileron/elevator control. then, it's going to be a very fun plane... ,
it's on sale now at ToysRUs for 30 bucks
