Here is some initial video for now, waiting on the maestro to finish the HD video with the special aerial shots

Enjoy it for what it is, and stay tuned for better stuff to come!

Down under we like to build em and fly em, not write 200 page threads arguing about em

Seriously though this is not a difficult model to build, like most Landers it's pretty well thought out and goes together easily. I have covered the difficult areas, if you have any questions once you have a kit then this is the place to post them!

The initial build may be done but there are going to be plenty of subsequent tips, tricks and questions in the near future as others start building!

Finally finished the video.... Uploading now, lots of work in to this and I hope it does justice to this great model. Should be finished uploading in 20 minutes.

Just finished my hunter last night and all your comments are right on. Just a few more notes on the build. Forget their elevator set up with those rods. it is much better and easier with the cable. The nose gear worked best for me by mounting the servo on the floor right behind the pushrod-and get rid of those crazy bends and just use staight line push rod about 3/8 inch long. Also the plastic clevis steering connector will interfer with the nose wheel steering because it is too wide. I used a thin Sullivan clevis and problem disapeared. That aluminum fan shroud is too awesome and BTW mine came perfectly balance and on a 4s 3200 screams!!!

Thanks for the comments about the video guys, had a lot of fun making it and Mark's brave flying helped a great deal. Now all I have to do is build mine, the first thing I have to do is remove the cats from the Hunter box.

Excellent video Dankers. Really showed the speed with the nice background.

By the way shotguns are an excellent method for cat removal. Don't damage the box though.

Great video and with some background speed comparison, sure didn't look as touchy as the Lander video.

I agree "Jets" on all of your comments. Forget the supplied control rods on EVERYTHING, flex cable is perfect for elevators. Also went with straight retract pushrods as I did with my Panther. WHY does Lander supply those crazy bent bits of wire and as for those clevices !!!?? Used carbon tube pushrods for ailerons and flaps (the latter fixed for now). I gouged out a groove in the foam to clear the steering link clevis as had same problem that you did.

Nice!
Looks like it goes good even on the 4s setup.
Can't wait to see our 6s w/ retracts get up and go...
