You bet. It left China May 18 at 21:28 and is headed for Canada. It should hit customs Monday. That means I should see it in 2 or 3 weeks.

Ha Xanadu if you going to Gimli Model Fest this Augest mabe we can do some formation bombing runs. If the UMX spitfire is out in time I'm going to pick one up to fly air cover.

I may be heading up to the June deployment at Gimli, what about you? We should have these in our hands by then.

Get a squadron flying!

The UMX Spit sounds like a great idea, as the PZ Spit I have is not large for the scale to the Lanc.

From the video of HK flying the test lanc, it is quite fast for its scale. I think I would slow it down for more a scale effect. Nice to know you have lots of power if you needed it though.

I wonder if the 10 amp esc's are going to be a problem. For this size of a plane 10 amps seems a little low.

No, each motor has their own ESC, and 10A is adequate for it.

Those 10 AMP ESCs ought to be more than enough for the installed 18mm outrunners and 6x4 three bladed props.This is a fairly small model, at 49.5" (1.25m) wingspan.

Being small, it will be a little harder to fly it slower to have it look more scale.
