Parkzone Micro Cessna

This sounds just like the Kyosho Minium. Wonder if it'll be compatible with the DX7.

Geez Horizon released a bunch of stuff in the last couple days... I wonder if this is set up for the new brushless 180 out runner from E-flite?

The E-flite 180 outrunner can be used in something like the E-flite Jenny, but is way too large for the ParkZone Cessna. The 180 motor alone weighs about half of what the Cessna does.

Hot diggity!

Any chance we'll be able to get the electronics from these for our own planes?

How in the world did they get it to be so light? I built a pilatus porter about the same size as this out of 3mm foam using plantraco gear and still wound up at 23 grams.

I might have to get me one of these.

Looks like its components will all be available. And I just took a look at that park 180. Great specs at half the mighty midget price. Good times coming up ahead
