Saw it in Toledo yesterday. Sign me up. Had the f27c for 5 years now and this one is more sturdy, built better, and has rudders. Fun, Fun, Fun...

The battery bay looked small to me. I picked it up and went over it really well. I thought it looked like there was little room to hog out the foam.

As for the price it's only $25 more than the C and has way more in reinforcements with the motor mount, frame, and landing skids than the C. Not to mention the better motor, ESC, and rudders.

Pennies on the dollar as long as you don't count what your time is worth. If you enjoy building that's not a bad investment for you, I enjoy flying, and building is just a means to an end for me. $185 is a great deal in my opinion. To each his own.

Well, the new Stryker is smaller.... But I'm also wondering if it's not a design intent so people don't use 6S batteries and make 200mph Strykers (just for reliability insurance...)

For those that say its a bad deal because its too similar. For your money you are buying a:
Spektrum ar600 59.99
Eflite Park 480 2200 kv (brand new) 49.99
4 digital metal gear servos 53.16
40 amp esc 74.99
lipo 35
charger 44.99
a newly designed and patented airframe priceless (no pun intended)


That equals 318.12 equivalent parts cost for the bnf edition if you assume the airframe costs NOTHING and if their motor is priced the same as the original park 480. But its fine if the stryker haters don't want any, that means more for us!!!

Well F27c stryker guys are not haters,the thing is that the Q is still a stryker.
as for replacement part and cost,you could get a killer CC ice 50 with data logging for the price of the 40amp,the charger could go with all the other bnf or rtf chargers in the corner,2 hs 82 servo's for 40$.

I am follwing the thread to read how many questions get posted that are already answerd in the F27C forum.

Why don't we quit worrying about 2 threads for similar things and just talk about what this thread is about, the new stryker. Unless rcgroups is running out of web hosting space any time soon, I don't think there is any reason why there cannot be a new thread for a NEW aircraft.

The Q needs it's own thread. I've had Strykers since the B came out and I unsubscribed from the C thread long ago because of the size and people just having conversations while your questions get buried and unanswered. That thread is just to huge to throw the Q into it.

Has anyone tried strapping FPV equipment to these or is that too much weight?

The old Stryker could carry a lot of extra weight! I've strapped cameras on the nose, the wing tips, the rudders, the side of the fuselage, and flew it as if nothing was added.... Today's FPV equipment is very small so that won't be a problem. Flying a FPV aircraft at 90MPH could be very interesting though

Also, launching by yourself could be tricky, and sure enough, you need a lot of landing space (unless you land it Quique style...). Sure enough, I would not use a Stryker as my first FPV plane!

Yeah, i wasn't sure if it would be realistic for FPV or not. I'm going with a MUCH slower bird to learn on and to start FPV. But, I want to move fast at some point. I've wanted to be a fighter pilot since I was just a kid. This is as close as I'll get
