Thanks Edward Obermaier.
Yes that is exactly right.
About the Hacker, I didn't check the motor size so I can't say if it fits the AddictionX (you'll need to compare to the Thrust 40) but generally, Hacker and Thrust has the same bolting configuration

Delivery to the USA will be by mid October

I don't understand. Are you guys Rabbito's or Melbourne Storm fans?

Seriously though, I just got off my bike to see this and threw up in my helmet. Ugliest. Schemes. Ever.

subsonic, have to agree with you about the colors. Those are BAD. Do not remember having seen worse in a commercially offered plane.

No one is forcing yall to buy these; but I am pretty sure once I get on the sticks with one, I am not going to give two flips about the scheme. I like the company and their products because of their performance... the red AMR is abousolutely beautiful though

BTW: Fall666, I dig the profile pic!

I think what the colour shemes are concerned, that it is too early to talk about them relying on pictures....we are for sure the only ones (apart PA of course) who have the three colours on hand..and I must say...all colours look awesome once the plane is in front of you...I prefer the green one, but one of our pilots is getting mad because his prefered red/white one...sitting quite ready to go on the bench...can't get in the air tomorrow due to the fact that Hitec did not supply the servos on time...three people who saw the planes up to know do unisono agree that the "X" looks much better that the Addiction...so stop talking about things you do not know about and wait for the kits to be available...many will be surprise...how beautiful "ugly" can be...

I probably will purchase the red plane. The other offerings are, to me, dissapointing. braeckman, you may be right about waiting to see how the colors look in person and not in a photo. We'll see.

bsbauman, yes, thought it was unique when I ran across it.

So what servos fit without modifying? I did not like all the filing on my first addiction…plus the balsa supports on the inside just fell apart.

I bought the Addiction because I liked the look on paper (and on the internet). When I had it in my hands, It looked even better and I loved it. The mk1 looks are unique, but they translated well into the advertising. Once I'd paid my money and owned it, I fell in love with how it flew and that does it for me. This new version, I've not seen in the flesh, but first impressions are bloody awful. Too far to come for me I'm afraid.

regarding servos...the bay is 100% precise for the Hitec 5085...and the Voltec90...

I do not understand the problem of filing on the Addiction...if you use the recomended Voltec 70, Blue-Bird 373BBMG or Hitec HS55, everything fits perfectly.

When I saw the red & white version it was not to bad and I thought other colors will be coming out but I don't know. I can't say that the others are ugly but they sure are not to my liking. I think I'll wait until the second run and see if PA re-thinks these color schemes.

Better than 1st pictures but still not my cup of tea. I will go with red if I buy one. Considering turning a Bad Boy electric instead.

That last photo with the MX in the background really gives you an idea of how big the Addy X is.
