Yea i may try from them. I did up a order and it was Cheaper then HK...Very surprising lol. I thought HK was the Cheapest lol.

EDIT: I just went a rechecked the pricing of 2 2200mahs. 2 Blue ones from Hobbyparts and 2 2200mahs Nano's 25-50C form HK. i was mistaken!!
The Nanos are 3-4 bucks cheaper. But that's not much of a difference!!.
Razor how were the shipping times from Hobbyparts!!

I would think you would need a Higher KV motor? The Stryker is 855g vs the SkyFuns weight of 550g. What size Prop did you use with that motor to get that speed? I guess the 4S would help. Were oyu using that 45A esc?

I was thinking of getting getting some 4S's for the Q, but i just ordered 3 of these. Not bad for $35 bucks Shipped.

I got a 50A esc on the way in another order, but im not sure if it would handle 4S on the 480 2200kv Im thinking 60A esc would be a safe bet for a 4S on the Q's new motor.

that motor is not going to push your stryker very well,try this motor with a 60a esc,6x4or 6x5 sport prop,2200-2650 4s 40c batt

Hand launches...well they aren't easy especially without wind. On the maiden I used an overhand toss without throttle and it worked well. Today it was a dead calm and my first two hand launches did not go well.

It seems the best method is gripping one wingtip apply full throttle and gently toss it forward. Keep your hand on the right stick so you can steer it in the first second. I agree the airframe is very tough, the detachable nose is a great addition and prevents a lot of damage to the airframe.

Use the flap system menu to control your air brake. Positive flaps will move the rudders out towards the wingtips. Negative flaps will move them in towards the motor. You can also change the activation speed, switch, and elevator mixing easily from the flap system menu.

Aux1 will control the left rudder. Make sure the subtrim and reversing are correct. Then set your endpoints on the Rudder and Aux1 channels to be the same.
Awesome, set it up on my DX6i.

In order to get 35mm of travel when testing my ailerons and elevators, I had to adjust both servo travel to 125% and move the clevis' to the bottom hole on the control horns. I am using the DX6i and I measured from the root of the control surface as described in the manual. Has anyone else noticed this issue?

I had to so the same thing on my P47. Maybe it has something to do with the servo centering not sure.
