We are talking about a wing that is 5" wider and a whopping 11" longer than the Styker. She comes in at about 4 and a half pounds. And just like that little Ceasar's comercial of old; "dat's alata pizza uncle Ed!".


And I don't even own a wing...sheesh!!

Peace - Out
the motor size doesnt mean itll be a better plane! afterall its bigger and heavyer and needs the extra power. does it add up to being a better plane?

Looks like a separate thread is needed "Future suggestions for Horizon".

I thought this thread was for people who like this plane.

Covering topics such as:
The tricks this plane can do.
Suggested mods
Failure points (if any)
Optional parts
Aftermarket parts
Suggestions for next revision of it 1-2 years.
Tips and tricks
Repair
Other useful topics regarding this plane

For people who don't like this plane: What are you doing here?
Too expensive? Sure, for some people. Go in other threads where the price is more to your liking/budget.

Enough of the negativity.

Servo discussions and such are valid topics....but some of the other stuff is getting weird.
Isn't there better stuff to do? Go watch some TV or something.

Lol. I agree, I love this plane and can deal with the price.

I'd rather have vertical vectoring because of the way I fly, but I'm not going bash them for it. I think this is an awesome plane!

The thread is a discussion about the plane.

Thus far i have seen alot of questions and comments asking how is this better than what is previously offered ?, and how does the price point match the improvements?
If someone can tell us all that it flies and performs twice as good as what is currently available then so be it, but until that happens we should be allowed to ask the real questions that concern each individual.

If discussion is no longer about difference and communication then maybe we should start giving out "participation trophies" instead of first and second place.

i want to see if the extra expence means more than is already available.
here i bought the stryker Q for 130
the shimitar is 250
is it worth it?

Unless you have very deep pockets, I doubt it

Making comparisons about performance and value of a plane that has not even come out yet, or flown by any of us is all quite speculative until we get our hands on one. Value is a perceived differently by everyone. Performance always comes at some cost.

Don't Knock It 'til Ya Fly It

The comparison between the 27Q and the Scimitar reminds me of the comparison between the Parkzone Habu, and the Eflite Habu 32: just a few more inches in wing span, 15 size vs. 32 size motor, more cost . . .

But the difference is the Habu 32 will BLOW YOUR SOCKS OFF compared to the smooth "casual" flying of the PZ Habu (I have both). They are both great airplanes, but the upgrade to the more advanced, slightly bigger Habu 32 is WELL WORTH THE MONEY!!!

So let's not knock it 'till we fly it. Then let the pilot's reports tell us if it is a good value.
