New e-bee epp flying wing - speed 400

http://www.windrider.com.hk
Has anyone seen these or have one? They seem pretty similar to a zagi, and have some cool accessories: 5 bucks for 25 glow sticks, whistle...

The glider is 50 bucks and the speed 400 motor and canopy are like 15 bucks. Not sure what size battery they need. They have like 7 on ebay right now starting at 1 dollar, with free shipping.

The site has videos but I need quicktime to see them.

here are some pics:

I cannot comment on the powered version, but the slope version is very cool.

You used standard servos? Is this what it is made for?

Yes.. on both counts. I don't know for sure, but I would think that the s400 version uses mini-servos to save weight. In the case of a sloper, however, I just think of them as ballast. (...plus they only cost $10.00 each.)
