HK Radjet 420

Will be getting this for the price!
http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...%5FPNF%5F.html
Cheap and strong! Hit or miss but is it worth the weight/wait! No rudders but EPS!
EDit: Specially wound Brushless! Ends up being $80 shipped... not as appealing at 80$. might have to get approval...

That is actually pretty cool, I love the Multiplex Funjet, why does this remind me of the funjet? .

its eps though, which, well according to weight might not be bad

if it had rudders, it'd be the cats ass.

mod perhaps?

This is a great competitor to the UMX stryker. The only thing I don't like is the smaller molex connectors that the servos use. I have purchased 6 of the R415 receivers from HK and only one has work. The other 5 were DOA. I have had great reliability from the R610 receiver. I really wish HK would get away from stocking models that use the crummy R415 receiver.

The only difference I can find in the airframe between this and the Funjet is the way the canopy latches to the body. They copied it to such an extent it's like it's licensed.

WOW that is really bad luck. I bought 5 - 3 in planes and 2 by themselves all work flawlessly. I wish HK would just include the receiver with it!
