Otherwise, when you fly normally, the Stryker goes where you point it and it's pretty good at keeping a line, so if you keep it high, sure enough, you're safe! But boomerangs are too much fun to watch...
Good to know. The good news for my Stryker is that I am just interested in ripping up the sky at this point and not much else......yet!

Case in point for how I fly. This is my third flight with this little guy:

Try it out and let us know! I'm very interested in a motor upgrade for this thing. I'd like another 10-15mph if possible.

Yeah, just trying to save people from a scammer. Try not to get hung up on details.

The point is it's NOT a scammer.
I assume you suspect the vigilink url?

vigilink is an RCGroups tracking domain.
Any link you click here that is not an Ad goes through vigilink.
Watch your address bar and see it yourself.
http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...y_Mode_2_.html

Not sure why a vigilink url was used in a post.
That IS odd.
But not malicious.
