2. The aircraft should be flown not lower than the ground and not higher than 50’.

4. A successful run shall be one up wind pass and one down wind pass.
5. The upwind and downwind passes do not have to run consecutively but must be in the same flight. The passes will be averaged.

I feel your pain, I'm waiting on a Stumax 80 also. Fortunately I have another one with the stock fan, I don't think I can out run anyone with that one. It sure is fun to fly! Maybe going to get something different for this one.

Maybe we should split this up, a stock class and an open one. Maybe the open one should be anything goes.

Tam I see that you sell a midi rotor or at least it looks like you do or did. Does the midi rotor work as good, or better than the Eflite?
