The little tiny hot wheels tires?

Mine has been crashed probably 30 times.

Almost snapped the nose off twice. Fixed with Foam safe CA and more recently Foam Tac.
10 bent prop shafts... all straightened. New shaft now tho
Wing snapped off during nose dive followed by high G loop.. Glued and Taped
Tail almost destroyed.. Glued and taped.
Hit probably 5 trees, stuck in 1.

Still flys like a champ

Well, weather changed. 10mph winds here today. I decided to try the champ in it.

With the a 550mah batt, heavy wheels and fast motor, wind doesn't bother this beast. It was going everywhere just as I told it to. Slices thru the wind.


I also took my BN2 up to the field, it was too scary, when those big wings caught the wind it was crazy. Landed it after only 2 minutes.
