Clancy Lazy E-Bee RTF ?

Here's a link to Hobby People's description of the plane: http://hobbypeople.net/gallery/222250.asp

It looks pretty nice, and the price is resonable considering all that comes with it, but I've been burned before on RTF package deals. I did a search on the forms and did not find any flight reports on this plane.

Anybody tried it yet?

Foam held together with rubber bands dosen't sound like fun for long. You would prob. be better off with one of the Clancy wood-framed ARFs if the Clancy "Bee" thing is your style. I saw one of the Bees at the JR electric festival. Built light and coved in synthetic tissue. What a floater..

I've been fighting the temptation for a Baby Bee myself for a while now.

The traditional Clancy planes could resonably be described as wood and covering held together with rubber bands. I don't see what that has to do with how long the plane will last or how it will fly.

Anybody out there actually own one of these or seen it fly?

I don't own one but plan on it someday. If I hadn't just bought a new vid card for the PC I'd get this one:
Lazy Bee ARF special

The price is better and you get the motor, ESC, Servos, Rx & Radio.

That does look like a better deal, maybe I'll go that way instead.

Honestly, I prefer foam planes over built up, but I know not everybody feels that way. I haven't decided what (if anything) I'm going to buy yet.

Not to spill too much of the beans, but I got the Ezone review kit of the Lazy E-Bee last Friday. Flew it Saturday. Review will be submitted this week!

All I feel comfortable saying for now is that Global and Andy Clancy did a fine job on this model!

Dulcet,
That looks great. Is it a kit or did you scratch build it?

Thomas,
I'll look forward to reading your review.

Foamie Combat/Trainer....

Brian,its a kit a local vendor produces,called the Stanley Streamer...all CNC cut blue foam with coroplast tail,almost indestructable,most of the local flyers here use a .25 to .40 2 cycle glow motor....I watched one guy clip a tree with his wing and it recovered and kept flying..!!Really good slow speed response cause of the HUGE wing area...I think 700 sq.inches and the 14 inch prop provides plenty of thrust.It flys for about 10-12 minutes with the Panasonic 3000 mah cells...

Do you know if that vendor would ship a Stanley Streamer to Massachusetts?

Is this a remake of the Cox Lazy Bee, or did they start from the ground up?

This is not a remake of the Cox ARF Lazy Bee of many years ago. This is a new model from the ground up.
