That's good to hear! Thanks for the info on the new Q. I'll be getting one this summer.

Are the top colors also painted on?

Yes it's all paint except for the names on it. Those were the only decals. I glad they used the magnets on the nose. I've done that since the "B" version was out. now I won't have to do that anymore. They did say the the C will be phased out but, didn't give us a time frame.

I am confused with the nose wheel/skid setup. Is it meant to be a landing gear? If so wouldnt the prop hit the ground? Just explain it please if you can lol.

I really agree with this point. I was started in the summer of 2010. OMG. You might have to read through 500 pages to glean 3 or 4 important points about a plane. The thread search helps, but it isn't always easy to select search terms to find what you are looking for. Just my opinion.

As for threads, no use arguing about it. Be rest assured, once one has been started, it'll never die..

All I can beg for is, pur-lease, no-one start ANOTHER PZ Stryker Q thread when the models actually arrive in the shops. Someone did that with the Radian Pro, now there are TWO massive threads running simultaneously . The mods aren't interested in details like that.

Edit: What was I saying, there IS already another thread on this model in Electric Plane Talk... Sigh..

Yep, I have 2 Outlaws.One is NIB. I'm gonna get this Stryker and see if it will replace them though. I've gone all electric and was just before converting the Outlaw. I'm gonna try this first. Rudders are a blast on these wings.

A few guys I fly with have multiple Funjets and no matter the skill level always seem to randomly have a bad takeoff from time to time (and by 'bad takeoff' I mean go inverted and crash into the ground with flames and a small mushroom cloud).

Any chance we can get some more input from Parkzone about the takeoff handling for this new plane?
IMO, the Stryker launches a lot easier than the Funjet.

That said, I've found the trick of launching both of them is learning to launch them under power with a fully extended arm directly overhead, almost like a javelin, so you don't cut your hand on the prop. -That's completely IMHO though, and that will be heavily debated here. LOTS of stories of cut hands from not doing it right, so beware.

You're absolutely right though, the hardest thing about any of the Strykers is getting it in the air.

You forgot to mention the other big thing it has in common with the existing Stryker: it's exactly the same size!

Instead of following in Multiplex's footsteps and coming out with a higher-speed model Stryker of the same size (like Multiplex did with the FunJet/FunJet Ultra), I would rather have seen Horizon follow in Great Planes' footsteps and come out with a "mini" Stryker, like Great Planes did with the Slinger/Mini-Slinger. I'm surprised Horizon hasn't already done that for a popular model like the Stryker -- especially with the explosion in popularity of mini/micro planes in the last year or two. A bigger model of the Stryker would be nice too...i.e. one that is suitable for equipping with the E-flite 10-15 electric retracts.

Dr Kiwi,

Well said. I'd rather have the real thing - a ProJeti, which the F27Q shamelessly copied. I thought the ProJeti was pricey for a hunk of foam, I could put rudders on it for a lot cheaper, but why? I've got 3D planes to do blenders

It's meant to replace the plastic skid that comes with the Stryker C now. The prop is kicked out of the way when the C belly lands, it'll be the same with the Q. Now there is better protection on the bottom of the tail fins and a wheel that won't be ground down over time by 100's of landings especially if you are landing on a hard surface.
