Yes but only the 1600
My guess is that everyone will want the EX with 2000mm wing span to take the extra wing loading with the FPV/camera etc

Can't even find a review of the 1600 anywhere nor video/flight report

Waiting them to sell spare parts; I'll get a fuselage to pair with some not used EG wings.

Read the ad. In very tiny print, it says you need the electronics.

So, which do you like better? I have 3 Sky Surfer's and I love those. The 1.6m FPV Raptor does not look so hot when flying. I am going to pass on it unless someone says it is more than the SkyS.

Damn

What happend to the kit with all the electronics included like they sent to Alishanmao and Bignose to test out ?

I don't know anything about motors, weights, props and stuff so it's easuier for me to buy ARTF or PnP

if its the KIT version, becareful on the motor/prop you buy because the regular size motors
we use on our SkyWalker wont fit, its' too big for this Rapture
.... I believe smaller than 35mm can will fit and prop can be no bigger than 8 inches....

p.s.
I still don't know what Alishanmao used in his setup and no support from Lanyu after countless emails....

Ask "Hooks" on his setup.....not being able to use my SkyWalker Scorpion 3014-1040kv Motor, and 9x6 APCe prop, 4s Lipo
was a bummer for me on this Rapture, otherwise its a cool plane from what BigNose13 mentioned. :-)

Maybe the easiest way is to buy the 1600mm from HK and but the EX kit from FPVFlying.com

Just need a very long car to transport it
