It was windy (full throttle) and I was doing some testing before taking off. So take that into account.

Today I did 3:10 wot flight then setup for landing battery was warm and I think it was 3.7, probably would have settled at higher voltage when cool

Manage throttle a tiny bit and I can definately see 4 minute flights however I will be stepping up to 240-250mah lipos for this as I would like the bit of nose weight they provide

Yeah I could see 4min flights with managed throttle, like 50-75% the whole flight... but WOT is only going to give 3min tops on the stock battery..
Some are only getting low to mid 2min flights before the LVC kicks in
And 3 is long for a bird like this at WOT
I have two 230mah 25c lipos and got 5 more in the mail today!
So that's a total of 8 flights before any charging baby!

Mine was flying so good i just kept doing full speed circuts about 10-15 feet off the ground so the other guys at the field could see it.
I have well over 100 flights on jpower 50mm F86 and dozens more on 4 cell (77mph), So im pretty comfortable with the F-86 airframe. I feel its actually more stable then the larger Jpower since adding the 2 grams of nose weight, which will be traded for a larger lipo in the future
FYI i am not using the factory charger, but an Icharger 306b, so it may be charging a bit more ( reading 4.2 on each cell when done) than the stock chargers do. If this weekend turns out not flyable then I will charge the lipo with the stock charger and see what voltage it charges to.



what brand lipos are you guys using in these ? only small 2 cells i see available are the hyperion 240's and thunderpower 250's. Thinking about getting 2 of the hyperion UMX connector ones to use for my UMX stryker and use an adapter for the f86

So, am I correct to think after watching this demo video that, like the parkzone micros, the RX is put into bind mode simply by powering it up before the transmitter? And then, the first transmitter to be powered up after the RX becomes bound to the RX? A clear explanation of how to bind an anylink TX to the micro RX would be appreciated. Thanks!

Auto Flyer, once bound, always turn on your AnyLink first and shut off the plane before the anyLink. That way your plane will always stay bound to your AnyLink and not another Tactic Signal. Once bound, the receiver seeks the last TX it was bound to before binding to a different signal.

Congrats man. Definitely post your impressions when you get it. It's strange people are buying this thing off the shelves when the shop I "bought" mine from a month ago hasn't gotten it in yet!

Not sure but I thought I would post this
I used a scale to get an idea of thrust from this little guy
I used the stock battery and some 230's I have
on the stock battery I got 47g at 50% throttle and at WOT I got 58g of thrust...
and on the 230's at 50% was 51g and WOT was 69g
and total weight with the 230mah was 64.4g
and the stock battery was 63.47g
