Its funny how parkzone or eflite just adds a letter to their new products to make it sould better. Like sukhoi XP. Or the new beast um"X". I starting to scrape up some money for this brushless micro! Hope it comes out before Christmas!

325mah 45C 2s Thunderpower pack at Atlanta Hobby!
http://www.atlantahobby.com/Store/pc...-638p13943.htm

$16.99 is likely cheaper then Eflite's stock 2s 120mah pack, and guarenteed to last longer.. This battery will be a HOT ticket when this bird comes out!

Yay! No more brushed motors failing! Wonder if you can use the same BL setup on the sukhoi xp or the mustang.

Doubt it, seems to be heavy... only time will tell though when we can get our hands on it and actually weigh the setup outside of the plane..

I like the AR6400LBL idea, finally no need for dorking around with an external brushless ESC. I also hope this combination works well.

Umm yeh.. now that the unnecessary public slamming is over with, lets get back on the topic eh?

After looking at the pictures, it dawned on me.. With 2 aileron servos flaperons or spoilerons could easily be programmed in via a dx6i or Dx7.. even slower flight would be possible then..


Kinda scary seeing them under the wing however, on top of the bottom wing would have been far safer!

Motor placement and construction looks solid.

Looks very serviceable and workable too.
That's nice to see in these smaller models.

Yes, should be interesting to see for sure!



looks like a flat wing almost in that pic, the rest of the preview pics aren't the best for telling what wing they used, but it looks think & flat to me! I sure hope it isn't 4site thin, I'd cry if they make this bird THAT fragile & brushless.
