Comp ARF "Spark"

Well i sold off quite a bit up stuff to consider purchasing this baby but now i'm not sure! I am wondering what you guys think and i am looking for some expertise on this one!
I was considering the hw-730 at first then i found out that Stu might have the answer but i need more input as to whether this will make the performances that i would like! So if you guys don't mind adding some insight before i make the plung!!!

Isn't that plane the size of the El-Bandito ?
Any hot 90 mm fan set-up should do it.

What set-up were you looking at when you bought it ?

I have seen it fly "Close uo", seen the kit and tested the DS75.

The Spark should have been 90mm all along.

Barry used to be an Eskimo and is used to very long days!

BTW

90mm for sure, DS75 is pretty good, but it should be in a bigger model. Not in any of the video I posted but it has a really high approach speed. It will also use a lot of sky for effective speed management at that wing loading. OK for Binocular Beluminimi but not for everybody.
