Hey guys, i'm a little confused by this plane, is it designed to be a full on F5D racer or just an every day speed machine? Looks damn nice though, I must say.

Good luck with the maiden Peter!

From what I get from the X-Plane,and the power setups people are using,it is for the new sport class called "PSYCHOLINER".

I think the X is what you want it to be, mine is like a picture on wall, just hanging there

serious, you can make it what you want, F5D, F5B, F5B super crazy, something in between, and so on... the Airframe is the strongest Ive come across, so it will handle what you put in for sure.. is it sleek enough to run uber speeds ? I think so..

Hey Slowbarless, I think the X is more of an everyday speedster, but faster, prettier, and better built than other go-fasts on the market.

The X is F5D size but is too heavy for F5D competition, and too small for F5B competition.

I believe the best position for it is Voodoo's PSYCHOLINER class.

For those that want 200MPH+ for bragging rights, you can fit that into the X.
For those that want nutty-acceleration-aerobatic-hotliner action, you can do that too.

Either/Or.

It is very stable, when slow or at speed, and is quite predictable and honest. I don't have many flights on mine yet, but there has been no drama other than the shaky knees at launch time.

"PSYCHOLINER", I like it! It's kinda catchy and I'll be using it from now on.

Good one my friend!

Very nice, Yuri!
If you have a Contour, just get the cap adapter and clip it on the side of your cap. Better solution than with GoPro, IMHO.
The bottom line: I would love to see the flights of the X piloted by Crazy Ivan himself Make of camera not important....as long as it's HD.

Yuri,that new X is amazing,One of these days i am going to talk you into doing an Insanely Painted Carbon Yuri Bike Frame with your skills,not sure why you are not involved in doing things like Race Car Bodies,or Intakes for Nitro and Alcohol Race Cars....or the other 9 million things that are being made from carbon that could use some painting for personal touch....Time to expand buddy.

Yuri, what do you use to paint? I'm repairing a plane and having a terrible time figuring out how to get a nice finish with an airbrush. Takes lots of wetsanding and polishing compound but there has to be a easier way.
