Nice flying Michael.

I spotted that your blender fell out as well on this plane? I noticed that I couldn't seem to get it to stick in the flat spin at the end of KE spin or blenders, did you find this?

Really no flight time.. just tried once... that is what came out... It will definitely do a blender. It is just getting the stick sequence down adding rudder then elevator. NO the plane. It was me and no experience with airframe. Wait til I do the real video. I don't have the cg right, the expo, the ailerons are obscenely fast. Need to dial it in a bit. Patience. I just posted this because weather is gonna suck for next 4 days.

But I gave you guys some extended clips of requests!!!!!

I just took 1 minute at the beginning to make some initial test maneuvers... The tumbling was part of that. Like I said, I guessed at cg, and guessed wrong and so on... I thought this would at least validate that this is a formidable airplane...

Nice job, Thanks Mikey!

Looks to be a very capable plane to me. I do agree that it looked kind of awkward at the end of the blender???

Can't wait till you get another go at it!

Just messing around on HK's site and put in basket to check on shipping costs. Next thing I see is some custom questions about declared value "gift" or "other" option.

I have never seen this before. Is it new? What does it ll mean and how does it affect the cost to me?

This is a really neat feature - which effectively allows you to choose the value of goods for customs purposes

I leave it at the suggested level and have never had any problems

I liked the end of this vid, it did more to convince me this is a sweet plane. I liked it so much that after following both the threads and staying out of the fray, I finally had to post. Thanks Michael, and I also would like to compliment you on your professionalism throughout this whole thing.

Thank you sir... I have to say I bit my toungue a few times, but... tried to just keep my objectivity...

BY the way, I got a lot of PMs saying the same and Thanks to all did that. This is a good plane. Really good in fact. Even without an accurate cg, the wrong prop and a lot of wind, the plane still felt great. I'll reserve judgment completely for a well set up plane and nice day to fly.

And for all those who think hobby king cannot make a competitive 3d plane... Take a close look. this thing may not be everyone's ideal plane, but those who like this type will love this.

hey michael...great video, great skills!
once you have it setup perfectly, you will even love it more.
i had the big luck that i had zero wind and cg and setup was just perfect.
i can ensure that this plane can do every wild thing at great level.
the only thing i have not tested was rolling looping, as i was still a rusty after the winterbreak.

I forgpt... Interesting piece of flight info... Ailerons were so fast, I had to set a rate for Rolling Harriers on the ailerons. Also, I just burried the snaps. The reason video had a few was because I had a hard time stopping on point they were so quick. Just need to dial it in... just thought I'd share.

jup...and the good news is, they even just lowered the price!!!
the bad news is, the orange slick "the collector one" is basicly sold out.
that bad, my paypal is empty....i really had liked a backup.
