Any other vendors other than BH? I got my AMX 50mm before BH shipped any from OKhobby but, they don't have them. I guess if I wait a while someone else will have them.

Awww carp! I rushed the maiden... and had the ##&447$$83 elevator reversed. I have had that tx not save a setting before, and I got bit. The motor mount popped out and i toasted the prop. $**$$&*#?#?! I found that the plane does not have enough.mass to hurt itself, even when it plants on launch. I have a 6*6 graupner speed prop. Draws almost 200 watts, so I will have to go easy on the throttle. More later, after a successful flight ...

Sorry to hear about your mishap, but once you get the Rare Bear going you are going to love it!

Thanks brother!. Rough day at work and hurried pre flight... my own fault. I need to find the replacement props. I will look into it and post what I find. Fly them like they are stolen!

Mine is here!! WOO HOO!! Will have it unboxed and fired up tonite if all goes well....

After seeing CrazyJ fly his I am thinking that a 6X5.5 APC would make this thing a monster on 3s. But man do I wanna try these 4s 40c 1000mah packs in this plane! (insert evil laugh here....)

How long did it take to get after you put in your order?
I ordered mine last night...

I think 6x5.5 on 40c 3s is still the stock class - would you agree?

Ordered 2 800mah 40c 3s today also.

4s 40c 1000mah - Full Military Power!!!

Man this is gonna be a hoot...

Is the Rare Bear the only one with the stock reinforcing wing spar? Seems strange that the model with the shortest wing span would be the one that needs reinforcing, unless the airframe is really that much faster than the rest.

I think I'm about to buy the T-28 cuz it is so pretty with the clear canopy 2 pilots.

oops, my bad, looks like the t6 & p51 have the spar too

I will only be able to fly it stock as it is now since I have (4) 3s 20c 800mah packs or go nutso and fly with 4s! Most that know me will agree that the latter fits me! LOL But I did get it together last night! I am amazed at how little was required for assembly! And it came with a battery and charger as well! Screaming deal....

Nice Ray! I have to admit, this is by far the best flying airplane out of the box and the fastest to build that I've seen in all my RC life! It took all the fun out of the building process!

Hey goon,
Whats the news, any flight report?
Have you strapped a 4S in yet... And turned that little hot rod into a blazing fireball? X-D
