It's funny, but I guess also inevitable, that evolution has already decided all these 'FPV ready' planes must look the same.

Interesting wing attack angle - seems that they were thinking of cameras - "level" flight will be a "look-down" angle like the b52 (for proper bombing attitude).

Yup is slightly negative arrow I think.
I also like the big rudder, the servo mounted on tail, platform for gps or copilot, outrunner motor mount, nose airscoops, ready ailerons.. It looks like the esc is going to be mounted into the fuselage, over the wing, there's an airscoop there too. If it flies good I don't see big reason to buy an easystar instead of this one.

I don't like the little glueing area for the elevator (maybe a screw to hold it in place? I see a little hole). I also don't like the canopy closing system, looks like we'll have to add some magnets or modify it a bit, I could be wrong but it's what I can see from these pictures.

Why manufacturers never spend few hours to do a decent demo video of the airplanes (not those shaking videos with poor light and distant airplane, I mean good videos like those from hobby lobby but longer), showing what's in the box, some interior details, some flying with a decent pilot, some fpv considering it's an fpv airplane... Adnan if you're reading this please post more pictures, that will exponentially increase your sales and make us happier duudes.

some 250 watts with 1400kv at 3s to be used with a 9" prop may be ? or maybe same setup of easystar if you have some already.. cheaper solution..

Might take a look over at Hobbyking to get some ideas
I got a spare mega 16/15/3 here not too sure if this will be ideal though
