E-Flite RV-9

Have you ever been to a local RC club swap meet and found a good deal? Well....this E-Flite RV-9 is one of those great bargains and believe it or not, it was new in the box for $50. I couldn't say no. I've always thought this is was very nice looking model and wondered about it's flying qualities. Assembly took several hours and I went with a E-Flite 480 1020kv motor and 40A esc combo. The verdict....this RV flies as good as it looks. With flaps fully deployed, slow flight is fantastic with great control response. Pull the flaps up, advance the throttle and she really moves out with that 480 set up. If you're looking to get into this hobby with minimal expense, visit a club swap meet, you'll be amazed at the great bargains to be had.

Best,
Tony

I hate you Just picked mine up for $100 and thought I'd got the deal of a lifetime - I've NEVER seen this for less than MAP and I've been watching for a while now. Starting mine today...
