After a week of flying the Dynam Meteor and the Exceed Concept X, I can say the Dynam Meteor is a better flyer for sure. Exceed takes a cheaper battery (I'm using 1800mAh 4S in the Concept X and a 3300mAh 4S in the Meteor). But the dynam has a better wing loading and flies easier. Both have just under 1=1 thrust ratio with the batteries I'm using. One of the good things about the underhand throw is that if I do it right, there is no twist. My buddy hand launched over head my concept x and caught the wing with his finger tip. I was 6' off the ground and inverted. I started to pull out but just rolled it over and dropped the throttle and landed. No damage.

Were you asking in regards to the stock setup or the Wemotec/HET setup?

If its the latter I got mine from Extreme RC.

However you can probably pick the gear up a bit closer to home.

So now that Hobbyking is carrying the Meteor I wonder what the stock Electronics are going to be like?

Will they be the same?

Thoughts?
