New Funjet clone- HobbyKing Radjet

Saw this online today. Looks pretty neat- I'm sure we will see some of these as FPV platforms! If they keep it really cheap, it could definitely be a player. May not be the "perfect" platform, but a contender nonetheless.

That pointy nose is begging for some fiber tape!

I'm guessing the long nose was for balance. Luckily, FPV flying takes a lot of component balancing, so it should be easy to remove the pointy nose and keep the stable airframe.

The pointed nose was designed for combat. It is actually made of depleted uranium. The foam outer cover is there just to make the plane more politically acceptable to the flying community. Replacement covers will be available at a very nominal cost plus exorbitant shipping of course.
