New EPP FPV plane

There is a new plane from Marek a seller from Poland, designed specifically for FPV, that I bought and tested. Until now, I liked more than Skywalker (I have bought 3 Skywalker).
This is the link of the seller: http://abc-rc.pl/p/2/1573/model_ursu..._szybowce.html

and pictures of my construction posted at the Spanish FPV forum:

The plane is incredibly stable, faster than Skywalker, with lots of space and very good glide (maybe a little less than Skywalker)

I hope it is not like the Trenerka from ABC rc. Because that was a big flop.

Sure looks neat. Kinda blocky though.

If it's anything like the other kits from them, I won't be buying. You basically get a box of badly cut foam and no building instructions and you have to go out and source all the carbon fibre and ply and all the other bits needed to build it. When you have to do that much work, it's not a kit and you might as well just scratch build one yourself.

I never liked the Treneka, even before you all said it was not good. But this one is a very, very good plane, believe me. My partners at the field, who are very old at this hobby, said they really like this plane, more than the Skywalker.

How much does that plane weigh, what power supply do you have in it, and how long does it last in the air with your setup?

Do you have any video of it flying?

No, everything is in the box, no need of looking for anything else. But yes, you have to build a lot. The instruction have been improved because of my insistence. He is making a manual in English (translating the original one). Also, in my thread at http://www.aeromodelismovirtual.com/...?t=7316&page=2 you can see almost steep by steep the construction.

I finished two days ago, so, I haven't had time to make too many tests. I am using the same motor and propeller than the one I use in my skywalker: 3536 1100 rpm motor Turnigy, 10x5 propeller APC, 6 amp Nanotech Lipoly 11.1 volt, 40 amp Speed controller. In the air, taking off and landing 3-4 times while testing, for 40 min - 1 hour (Like with the Skywalker). The weight, in the seller page saids 1,6 kilogram with batery, motor and electronic. In my hand, a liitle more than the skywalker.

Yes, it's to help my partners at the forum to build theirs (and for this forum also). It was a hell for me to understand the manual in Polish. I don't want anybody else to suffer the same.
