Anybody planning on getting one of these? I would consider it however I've already committed to to many new planes so must live vicariously through others for the time being

I not totally fond of the overall profile and prefer the older Nemesis, however I could get get use to it. I do like the retracts, and think it would look killer in the air at speed with it all tucked up!

The Fiberglass fuse is another item I like, totally love the finish on the paint in the photos. So, somebody please purchase one ASAP and post it here. I would love to see and hear about it, I could snap as well, provided they remain in stock





Specs:
Wingspan: 1450mm
Length: 1420mm
W/Area: 29.4dm2
Elevator Area: 6.6dm2
Rudder Area: 3.55dm2
Flying Weight: 3500g

Requires:
Your Own 4~6 Channel TX/RX
400kv~500kv Brushless Outrunner (6s capable)
80A ESC (Min)

Yummy plane, will consider after the first of the year if its still around. Not excited about the color, but the specs hint at a reliable speed plane.

It does have astrange looking profle that maybe the paint scheme does not complement. Maybe if the plane was all white, all black, Silver or something.

Still I would like to try one one day

The real airplane's top color is a light silver-blue metallic and the bottom blue color is a darker blue metallic.

ViperZ,

Very nice video, it was very relaxing You know I might just have to take the plunge on this NXT. I really do like it, although my Sundowner is going to be tuff to beat. The SD ended up nothing like how the kit was supposed to be built, which so far has been a good thing It ended up with a Scorpion 4035-460 and a Scorpion 130 AMP ESC running on 10s, a little better than the recommended E-flite Power 46BL Outrunner and a 60-Amp E-flite ESC

So I guess I would need a little help with the power set up for the NXT, the factory recommendations are, 400kv~500kv Brushless Outrunner (6s capable)
80A ESC (Min), that doesn't sound to exciting to me

So what's everyone's ideas on the power set up, motor, ESC, batteries and prop? I know it might be hard since we have not heard of any really being put through their paces, especially what will actually fit in the way of batteries and such in the airframe.

You know the only thing I am really having a tuff time swallowing is the shipping, it will be $81.00 to get it to my door, wow that's a lot. Well I guess someone might as well be the test bed, I will have to get through Christmas first, then it's my turn

So shoot me your ideas, and lets start talking about it, I do appreciate all the help, hopefully it will turn out as good as the SD did

Mike

Hey Mike, yeah looks wise I still like the Sundowner, and as you say, it's going to be tough to beat!

I haven't really scoped the power system for this plane, due to otehr projects, but I do have a spare Scorpion 4025-12 440kV that could be used with a 8s system. It could fly with that

Shipping for me is a killer to, however that seems to be the price of doing business for planes most times out of country.
