Now I'm wondering if my 180mah babbel packs will work with this, you think?
That picture just wasn't fair for all of us still waiting to get our hands on one of these

OT but some beautiful videos... and by the way I know you have been making a lot of videos lately and I am sure that I am not the only one that appreciates it.

Maidened mine tonight. I liked it but wasn't blown away to be honest. Before I go further - this is most likely due to me not knowing exactly what to do with the thing! This is my first flying wing.

Anyway - it was fast and very well behaved. Maybe slightly nose heavy but it didn't bother me.

I guess my net takeaway is that it's almost as fast as my Sbach with a 5053 prop and it rolls slower than both my Beast and Sbach (I was on high rates - 100%). So I wasn't blown away.

I couldn't knife edge. How do you dp this with a fixed wing??

Don't get me wrong - I had fun and it was definitely cool and very different. I need to keep playing and exploring. If I can learn flat spins and some other stuff I'd surely enjoy it more.

Any tips?

If you don't get between her and her cubs, you should be fine. BROWN bear... now THEY scare me. I've been dealing with black bear all my life and they're scardy-cats except when they think you might be hassling their young.

Yeah... weird, huh? The Sbach rolls like it's in a drill and the Beast is not far behind. The Stryker just doesn't compare to either even though I've got the 10-12mm deflection the manual recommends. Lots of fun, though.

Anyone else have issues with only one rudder working? I switched the bottom 2 servos on the board for my dx6i to work. Then switched aileron in the TX to be reversed and turned on elevon. Elevon seems to be working great but only 1 rudder is moving, if looking at it from behind the plane, its the left rudder that actually moves.

Also note, I didnt even bind mine till I had already switched the servos. So I dont know if that makes a difference but I thought I would mention it.

Slower than the UMX sbach? Thought this was "clean" stryker.

Just got mine...haven't maidened...seemed almost spot on with 180 hyp all the way back. I agree with the others, that it seems a little nose heavy. Maybe removing the useless wheel will offset weight. Looks great! I almost bought the beast as well until I opened the box, and there were all these bubbles on the decals....It was their only one. They offered a discount, but I don't like it like that. Anyway, can't wait to maiden!

Bring her straight up and max power and quickly do FULL DOWN and FULL RIGHT Rudder and FULL Left Aileron and no power. (yes cross controls) Watch it spin like a falling leaf and about as fast.

For batteries you can use two HobbyKing MCPX 300mah Nano's with custom RC Connectors.com for a 2 cell setup and they ROCK.
