New Product
E-Flite Pogo

I was wondering why the Pogo has no dedicated thread?

For the price it sure seems like a bargin. To compare Apples to Oranges it's about the same price as say a similar sized Great Planes Escapade <when you add in the Escapades optional cowl>







Almost as cool is the high KV Power 25 <1250KV vs 870kv> they suggest as a power plant.

Should be a lot of fun <fast> this summer!

You beat me to it by an hour or so... We take things a little slower here in the South! LOL



Glad there is a thread now!!! Was hoping for warm spring weather to start flying again... Now I am hoping for Mid-May so I can get one of these...

Guess I am gonna have to break down and get some 14v batteries from Hobby King now.

Then we won't need to find a screamer or a polecat!!!!

Note though that the Power 25 motor is too long for NMPRA competition specifications.

It says overall though. Maybe they are including the shaft? If so then it will probably be fine.

No. It says the case length is 56mm. The Turnigy case is exactly 42mm from end to end (excluding the tiny 2mm bump on the back end where the bearing goes, which you can see in the picture).

Just a quick note with regards to the motor dimensions. As stated before the rules published are in a state of flux. Defining the motor has been one point that has been highly debated and is still being discussed.

Please do not get hung up on the E-Flight motor being illegal at this point. The E-Flight motor will be legal in name or dimension when the rules are published in their final state.

The Pogo will be at Toledo and SEFF for those that have an opportunity to see it.

The new Platinum Series will not be At Toledo.

Not sure how the Pogo became the main point of the topic thread when the thread is called warbird.

Yes I will be at SEFF.

And yes the SEFF BBQ is sounding very outstanding right abount now!!!!!!!

John

Here is another thread which talks about the Pogo and the PZ Extra 300 when it was shown down under...

The decal says otherwise



I have no intention to ever race in a event so personally it matters little to me. I just want something to go fast and turn left... no your OTHER left!!!!

That being said I can understand some being cautious. I really like the high KV and hope the motor can hold up to it's advertised specs. In the past I have punished Power 15s and 46s and have yet to smoke one.

Now that I have gone and jinxed myself, Ill end this post!!

Except for work where I have to use windoze, we're a Mac family - in fact, my daughter is sitting next to me doing her homework on her macbook while I browse RCG on mine..

I love the movie. Not a fan-boy, just think the acting was brilliant.

Anyone have one that can measure the wing? Also, from that view, looks like the stab is flat plate?

The stab is a flat plate with rounded edges. Minimum thickness is 3/16".

The wing is a little more than 375 sq inches and is 1" thick at the root.
