New Classic Predator Bee

I killed my last Bee in a 110+MPH DS crash. I broke a std size karbonite servo for the first time. Here's it's replacement. 21oz classic Predator build. The only difference was I used 3m extreme instead of the 3" windrider strapping tape. I like the 3" tape but on my last build it wrinkled under heat and I wanted to avoid that on this one.

Update: This plane is still going great. I cut down the tips a little to move the CG forward. They are still longer than stock but 1/4" shorter in height. I also added about 5 layers of clear tape to the LE in front of the CG. Balance is just slightly forward of 8-1/2" and perfect. The performance of the Bee never ceases to amaze me. On high rates with a bit of expo and I'm getting a fantastic but controlable roll rate and really tight inside and outside loops.

Predator Bee

Do you know where I can get two Predator's?

My 12 year old son did his first Combat with me today, and he really like's his uncles Predator, but they seem impossible to find.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Chuck

Wow, Murphy is alive and well.

I just built a Alula Evo today, and love it. So after we came in from flying, I gave up, and ordered him a Weasel Evo, but then saw your post shortly afterwards. Looks like he's going to have two. Thanks very much for the info!
