Thanks Dale, this thing is a hoot I am doing things I never dreamed of, Yes I am trying the HOOOOVER, i get about 5-10 seconds, which is 5-10 secs longer than I could do 2 weeks ago, I love flying this thing in a light breeze esp trying to HOOOVER or HARRRIER with the wind under the belly, YEAH IT WANTS TO HOOOVER!!!!!................ed

Under an hour after unboxing and I was at the park in 15mph winds, handled it like a champ. Stock setup was trimmed perfectly. After 2 batts I heard a brief random screaching noise - prop adapter needed to be tightened on the stator.
A bit tough to get a sharp straight up and down knife edge and a little wingrock in the harrier (coulda been the puffy wind) but this thing is a blast. Able to fly in a small field and floats right down everytime.
DX7, everything on one switch, packing tape hinge on the battery cover, wider velcro strip in the battery tray, plastic protector on the base of the rudder.

Will be paying attention on results of different size props and perhaps some cheap HK servo replacements to have on hand as spares, I look forward to many more posts, I think they got a real winner.
Glad to have ya with me in the club George, tomorrow looks snowy but no wind so I think the birds will be going up! Come to work ready for flying!!!

You should have seen this jerk at RCHOVER today, he was helping a friend set up a new Visionaire and I saw first he had the LG on backwards, he's all defensive until I show him it should have a forward rake in the manual and he finally concedes, then he's helping him check control directions and I mention the goofy flights modes preprogrammed into the RX unit and the fact that you need to use the gear channel to switch between and he was a complete ignorant jerk about it, claimed that it wasn't needed, that he was using flight mode in the transmitter and it was a magical DX18 and that it was plenty of throws to 3D the plane yadda yadda yadda. I feel bad for the friend he was setting it up for. Ignorant fool. I just walked out the dude was so rude, so much for me trying to help LOL.

nice flight Zmonster, hope the sky will be blue here next time.
Did you fly with higher rates in 3D mode or are there still 70% D/R ?

Did anybody check the Turnigy 2200mAh packs ? How do you feel with it ?
I soldered my ESC yesterday and now I have XT60- the advice to remove the ESC out of the fuse was a good tip-otherwise it would be a hard challenge to solder into the fuse.
Will also mod my other clevis at rudder and aile with steel pins next time..weather is bad and therefore I will spend my time for recommended mods.

Made the mistake of stopping by the big city hobby shop Sunday and there it was nudging up against my leg, just begging me to take it home. You can figure the rest of the story.
I can only guess on how it flies, but build was about like dump it out of the box and it falls together. Got to be the most solid, rigid, least flexing foam plane I have ever seen I believe. Seems to be built like a brick. Seems almost identical in size to my Carbon Z, yet flies on my 3cell 2200's like most others in the fleet. Should be easy to see for sure. Fit and finish was excellent - surprised it's called Parkzone instead of eflight. Did notice that the motor is actually labelled eflight.

Ya it's a pretty easy job to remove the ESC and you can then solder with no risk to melting foam or doing a bad solder job because of limited access... Glad it worked out for you. Hoping to get this bird in the air again tomorrow as there is no wind forecast...but snow. Might just have to fly in the snow!
