I noticed the 32 had been added to your website the other day. It was friggin' tough not ordering one along with the coroplast! Looks awesome though, and if it's anything like the original TuffWing it'll be a blast to fly...

Same here, I think the wings lost a little, but I am thinking of ordering a Tuffwing over a Battlewing. I really want the speed over anything else. What will it be???

This thread is old but putting in my 2 cents. bought the 34" tuffwing and went with this motor .... http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...18117&aff=7998 all I can say is it's fast. Motor is cool and so is the battery. Long flight times, using an APC 6X4 prop.

Saw one recently w 28-36 3000 kv, liked it so much had to build one.

About 6 months ago debated between Popwing 1200, tuffwing 32, and a Ritewing. Chose the pop, bad choice and only plane ever just cut up and trashed. Should have gone with Tuffwing, it's for night combat.

Almost done, night lights, HS-82 mg and custom motor mount, laminate. Debating NTM 28-36 3000 kv or the 2200 kv version, so also debate between 6" and 7" prop. Want to keep esc light, think the 2200 kv can use a 50a and the 3000 kv would need a 60a+.

From what I saw, this should be a major handful++. Hope the torque steer isn't out of hand, not sure how much wot this will see, build is more strength than speed, should be crazy fast just by design. Motor mount and some extra laminate should help. Pics later, Hopefully maiden in a day or 2.

I'm using my Tuff Wing 32 for FPV. This is a blast to fly, very smooth for a small wing.

Looking good Buffy, I've been thinking about getting one of these and covering it with lam. It looks really good.

Thyanks. It sure is fun to fly FPV with. The pics were old and I've since changed the flight cam to a Sony HADII and added a Mobius. I did cut the nose a bit to clear my flight view. The Lam makes it Tuffer
