Very true, Rick
If we ask him really nicely, maybe Gary at Custom RC Parts will even work out a mount for the Stryker-Q (assuming his current mounts won't fit)
Those mounts have transformed the Stryker C.

Has anyone gotten the simulator version to do high-alpha maneuvers (including the vertical landing from the video)? I am struggling to perform them in ClearView...maybe I just need some instructions...

I just tried mine and wonder if the rudders are really that effective... would be really nice but I doubt the real model can do both upper and lower knife-edge loops.

we'll see...

The stock motor for the F27Q has been run on 4S in the trials.

I believe it comes with 40A ESC, and
......maybe the ESC is good for 6S max (Not too sure if I heard the ESC's max voltage capability correctly, didn't want to ask)


My source: I'm not telling.

Striker, without a doubt will be easier to step up to, I have a habu and corsair(no T-28), have flown strikers a good bit. A striker has some of the tendencies of a jet, mostly that the control gets a little sluggish as airspeed slows being there is no propwash over the controls. The biggest difference is thrust, and maintaining speed, the striker can maintain speed very easily, and can accelerate vertically, if you need to power out of trouble, even straight up there is plenty of throttle on tap. The habu can't pull as hard, speed builds slowly and most of your time is spent managing airspeed losses through manuvers and climbs, go to slow and it will stall, all you can do is hang on, and hope you have enough altitude to recover as you have no control of the plane till it does. The striker has control from a very slow speed, and stalls gently, but is about as fast as the Habu top end, it has more responsive controls, and holds up better in a mild crash.

The Habu stalls abruptly, and when it does, you have no control at all till it noses down, and picks up speed, which takes a bit of time and altitude. The surfaces are relatively small, so you have little control at slower speeds, but blistering fast rolls and somewhat twitchy elevator at higher speed. Both are capable of basic aerobatics, knife edge(at least on the new striker), loops, rolls, and some stall manuvers like hammerheads and stall spins, but the Habu loses precious airspeed quickly with larger control inputs or tight turns, and takes longer to pick up speed again, if speed isn't maintained, it will stall, it also can't turn, roll or loops as tight as the striker. The Habu rolls off the ground well, and isn't that bad to land provided you have a lot of room, and stay above stall speed, but it will coast at moderate speed for quite a ways, the striker can bleed off speed a bit easier and safer being it has mider stall characteristics and a lower stall speed, and then land easier, hand launches are easy with it.

The Habu can coast for hundreds of yards at 40-50MPH after power is shut off, but with just a bump of the elevator or rudder, it will slow quickly, and needs throttle to stay in the air, so it may take a few approaches before you can land it at a modest speed. The Habu also can be a handful to hand launch, taking the gear off will increase top speed from mid 70s to low 90s, but there is little to grab onto, and it has little if any control till it gets some time to build speed, it also can have a nasty torque roll, and too much throttle with a toss not perfectly straight and at the right angle will roll it into the dirt. There have been many people that get a single 4 second flight and epic crash from their Habu because of these charachteristics.

The Striker will help you step up from a 4ch trainer like the T-28, it will help you learn more advanced manuvers, and control at higher speeds, orientaion can be tougher on a wing compared to a jet, or any plane with a tail, but it gets easier with experience. The habu would be a leap in skill, much less forgiving, more expensive both in cost, and in pricey 4 cell batteries, but jets can be a lot of fun, and the Habu is relatively easy to fly. I would go for the striker first, it is the more versatile aircraft, and can fly a wider envelope of speeds, conditions and manuvers, then if you want to try something different and expand your skills, go for the Habu later on.
