Awesome. Thanks. Going to go ahead and fpv this one. Micro transmitters, antennae, and cams should make it possible to keep weight super low so should be fun. I'll have to experiment with battery. Hoping the 2s 450's I've got for the other crack foamies won't be too big but can go down to 300 mah or so if needed.

I have both. They are totally different planes. The Assassin is a purpose-built combat plane. It's built to withstand high impact, full-contact combat.
The Crack Wing is a lightweight, highly aerobatic plane that would not fair well in combat. It wasn't designed for that.

Exactly. One is a blunt instrument while another is a more delicate but more finely tuned tool. Both have their places but they are nothing alike.

Crack wing assembled and flying. Made it about as light as possible - cut servo wires down, removed the connector from one to save weight, removed receiver case, 6 amp small turnigy plush esc. Flies great with 450 mah 2s. Bigger battery than specd but flys fine with it and it's the same battery as my crack 3d planes so...

This thing flies slow enough proximiy fpv should be very possible. Waiting on a lighter weight cloverleaf antennae to arrive before I try it though. Using tiny cam and tiny 5823 transmitter (weighs 10 grams or so).

Seems like there's a little life left in this thread after all. I just ordered a CW which I picked because I need a low-speed close-in flier for group flys in a soccer field, edged with trees, poles etc. I assume my priority will be for lowest possible wing loading so am planning on using the smallest practical motor. I have a HeadsUp 180+/2000kv at 10grams that will put out 154g thrust with a 6030. I have various small 2S lipos from 12 to 19g. Does that seem an acceptable lite powertrain for the CW? Or will I have to put too much effort into just keeping it aloft?
