4s will be the way.
And based on the battery compartment dimensions they will fit..

Im going to try and keep this one as stock as possible.

I usually change out the Servo's and ESC on all planes I receive from HK but this one looks like it will be ok.

Do we know what the stock ESC is ie: brand/ubec/sbec???

Stock version

Having the stock version, which will be the best bet on the battery capacity, 1800 or 2200mAh?

Hi Guys,
Jealous I am !
mine just left Hong Kong for Germany, I gues I am one of the first few in Germany receiving this little beauty
I have got a 2815 /4800KV waiting to do it's duty with 2200 3s 35C on a balanced stock fan for starters
This is the same setup I run in my F9F Panther, which goes around 130 K's depending on the battery quality.

I am hoping that the stinger is a bit faster because of the better aerodynamic layout and hopfully thinner back end of the wings.

we will see

Heres the red Stinger!

Arrived just a few minutes ago, a little later than Bajora as I had it shipped by standard Air Parcel to save some bucks since I was in no real hurry.

I had expected double-boxed just like my other orders but this is the first with just a slap of cardboard above the foam box. However, came intact and in nearly perfect condition. They had nicely squeezed my other non-related orders into the compartments meant for batteries/TX.


Unfortunately, only some areas are stickers such as the horizontal stablisers. The rest are paint and water-slide decals, I guess those who would like to have custom paint scheme will have to pull out their chemicals or sand paper.


I'll have it built later tonight if I have the time. It is a beauty just by looking at it's raw unbuilt form. Lovely innit?

Just ordered the kit version tonight (red one cos red is always faster ).

I'm going to use a FW 4S setup out of my old SU34.

Lipo is going to be a Nanotech 1600MAh 4S.

Hopefully it will be a little quicker than stock but still fly light.

Can't wait to read some flight reports from those receiving there's now.

Good luck with the maidens guys!!

Hi all, got my Stinger today also. Like some have already mentioned an ordinary 25c 3cell 1800Mah lipo will not balance this plane. I got my pack balanced at 8,5 centimeters from the leading edge. I also tried a Lightmax 20c 3 cell 2200 weighing 180 grams and this pack balanced at the suggested 7 cm from the leading edge so this will be used to maiden the Stinger. I hate to put lead into a plane so I will fly her first with this pack and hopefully she will fly nice with this weight. It is a very nice thought out design and the assembly took only 25 minutes.

btw I just took alook at the pictures Bajora posted..

it's gonna be an easy fit for my 45-90c nano tech 4s pack.. now as for balancing it will be a bit tricky but not undoable. flaps also seem easy to do ...
hmmm
