I'm U.S. central time, about 16 hours behind Hong Kong. Going to order mine at wednesday around midnight. Would be nice if these are going to be available through U.S. and European warehouses. My guess probably not. Going to first try a 3S 3300 pack. I wonder how big the battery compartment of this plane is? If it is tight, ESC cooling may be an issue.

Vampire is a sweet deal! Fun to fly and offers EDF/Retracts for a fantastic price!

I am refreshing the New Items on the HK site every 30 min or so...

Common HK, Papa needs a brand new EDF hotliner!

All being well, you'll see the product live and the video in the next day or so. There I said it

ive got 5 2200 3s packs for the axn and dont wanna buy many more lipos, reckon 2200 would be ok ? as this may replace the old trusy noisy floater. a 10 blade would go straght in.

great edf sound and gliding in one plane, sounds good to me.

it is a nice plane once you get used to the pitch up if you chop the power.
the edf noise is sweet when you get the jet like sound on a fly bye.

FlyWW1,

How do you know this? What is your connection? I trust you but I want to verify

Shouldn't one wait out the first batch?

Let those beta-testers come up with praise/criticism/hints, and buy only when a second production batch comes a month (or 2 or 3 ) later?

Might be a good impulse control management.....

We're not little kids anymore.... no wait, regarding the hobby, we might be considered just that.
