Andy....can you help out on this question? Can folks get them soon in the US or should they direct order from Asia or?

I am hoping to finish my build and get it airborne this weekend for in-flight media. Clark, are you flying yours at the recommended CG? Thanks!
Hey Jon,

Thank you for hint of the TX and RX.

I flew with the recommend CG and it was nose heavy. It is flyable but I put a lot up-trim on the elevator. My 4S 2200mah Lipo is all the way back in the battery compartment and it is still nose heavy. I am going to enlarge the hatch to let battery sit further back.
-Clark

Heading out shortly to maiden mine ... she came in at just over 30 ounces AUW RTF. I am running a stock3S/4S motor from JPower that came in my prototype Concept X, using 4S 2250 packs.

Well, it was superfine while it lasted. PLENTY of power and a quick rotation on the maiden. I took her up for trimming out and the ESC dropped out for some reason but it came right back. I should have landed right away but figured I was OK and I really wanted to make some passes for photos. Well, on the first pass, when I powered up to climb out, the ESC completely died on me and I was way vulnerable .... not very high and and having just completed a turn to downwind. Before I could get the nose down, she fell off on a wing tip and hit nose first on the runway. OUCH!! My pretty Tornado isn't so pretty any more. And the bummer is I never even was able to play with the wing sweep or lose the gear for some hand launches and higher speed flight. The ESC was one I had in my parts box and had used in several other projects with no problem. Until now.

I guess I can't win them all. Andy always says "crash happy" ... but every airframe has its limit and hitting nose first on a hard pack track hurt this one real bad. Sorry Andy!

Fortunately, GP125racer was able to score at least a few photos of this colorful EDF in the air. Thanks Don!

Ask Andy to send you the other color plane. He knows you didn't mean to crash ofcource; and it will allow you and us the opportunity see the other one flown "here" in the states.

I am not sure they make hot enough water to set the severely deformed foam straight again.
