Needs to do 52 legs !!

As far as i am aware, to fit the bigger packs nicely you need to remove the area on the fuselage that the back lip of the wing rests on. After this you should be able to press fit a set of 6S 3250mah in there but it will come down to 1-2mm of pack thickness. The packs should go in on their side. Potentially the old 30C generation would fit and the new 45C won't. Time will tell.

Ihmo, i doubt Bob would (let you) grind that area out in his shop to try some packs but you never know your luck i suppose!

Well I wish I spoke German. I saw the .de thread on the RW4 and many posts have been made. Perhaps someone could extract any useful tidbits from that thread, and translate some of it? That would be helpful and appreciated.

Also, wondering about airfoil designs. Assuming similar wing area/chord and span, is a thinner wing supposed to have less drag at higher speeds. I'm sure it's very complicated, but is that the simplicity of it?

If you install Google Chrome, it can translate entire web pages/forum from any language in a single click - very pratical

What's the german RW4 build web link? Actually, there should not be much of anything to build as it's as close as RTF as a glider can be no?

That was a good tip, translater worked good. I got some throws and servo - radio settings too. It's an enjoyable read should anyone be looking for more F5B chat.

The translater calls it the "missile worm". ;-)

A+ to Stratair and the developement team for a good manual.

This is a very impressive overall package with the model being so complete and the set up instructions easily available. I love the fact that the settings for all modes of flight have been included as well. Should I end up with a this as a new toy, I imagine some of the maiden flight stress relieved, after reading these settings.

The RW4 will no doubt allow many new F5B pilots the chance to avoid common errors related to building and set up.

This is really a great looking new offering, think about it, high end models nearly ready to fly, offered at a competitive price; WOW!

A++

please take your digicam with you, to make some shots...so to short the waiting time of getting my own... i think now itīs still 4-5 weeks of 14 weeks till i get my own...

very interesting for me would be a picture from the front direction of the wing, so that we can see how thin such a rw4 wing is, because it should be very thin...and i canīt really imagine how thin it is in natural maybe a photo can show...

Tried those again today, up to 5kw and they worked fine after some "upgrades" to soldiering.

So, if I do end up with one of these tomorrow, I'll have some packs to fly.

Wonder what weight motor this thing wants to have? Anyone?
