Directly from your website.

I added to cart, hit the checkout button, clicked on estimate shipping charges, filled in country, state, and zipcode as requested and it quoted me $84.00

No shipping is available to Iceland from fpvmania.com.

Warning: No Shipping options are available. Please contact us for assistance!

I hope BEVRC adds the model to their website. Free shipping for orders over $200

OK - I now realize that was just a quote. After registering for an account and filling in shipping address, it stated EMS shipping to be $49

So $208 Shipped to the States. That I can live with.

Now just to make the choice and the purchase, it's either this plane or the Penguin.

FPVMODEL could be only exclusive for skyhunter for the world, of course our dealer will sell them to support local market and provide good service, but BEVRC, Hobbyking might not in the list, 600 sets are ready in the stock, now face a problem, box for shipping, 3 carbon fiber are too long for the box, we need to modify the box to reduce the shipping cost, in case the shipping company rip off customer, new photos will come out tomorrow, and we might start shipping 1 more week later after solve the box problem, meanwhile, the white list for reviewer are sounds good for us, we like to do something like condor Skywalker 1880 again

Was this plane cruising at ~2-3 amps at ~65kph using 3s Flight Lipo?

I don't think that number is amps. I think the number under the voltage was
amps. Looks like 15ish to me. I don't think it would be aerodynamically possible
to do 2-3A at 65kph with that large a plane, or if it is it would have to be
extremely aerodynamic. 20-40 watts just isn't enough.

There's two voltages in the lower left, and the higher of which "15" is consistent with 4S, so that's
probably the motor voltage, but both it and the low amperage are irrelevant because
it was in a shallow dive the whole vid. Look at the altitude on the right, it started at 916m,
and ended at 640m over about 83s. That's 640fpm descent rate, which is pretty quick.
Wouldn't have mattered if the motor was running or not.
Can also see that the OSD has an artificial horizon and the center point was *well*
below it (nose down).

And just for the record, the X8 (my X8) is capable of cruising level at <8A on 3S (should be capable of 6A on 4S)
My not very aerodynamic Skywalker can do 6.5A on 3S and I've seen about 5A on 4S.
We've seen EZ* type planes in the 4A range.
It's just very boring flying for minimum current.

Haven't seen enough information to give an informed opinion about what this plane would
be capable of, but at a guess, I'd say probably somewhere between Skywalker and X8.

Hi
I don't mind doing another review for you, think you liked my review of the Condor and the T Motors you sent me,
I have some time on my hands now so can do the review pretty quickly
Regards
Simon
