MUST HAVE!!!!!!!!
It was no joke!
Here's mine. I've had all Addiction colors except purple, and I think this looks the coolest in the air.
I would be keen as on a Blue 260 to match.

Hey how come we never see Adad flying, and Shaun do the "holding the plane" pic??






this photo is really funny

In fact this is the first time I see it (taken during one of the later test flights)...

you know this plane KE like nothing else so basically you can KE it at ANY speed and AoA you like so I believe I kept on going with the KE until I almost hit myself

this plane is a joyride!!

I believe that once you guys will start flying the Ulti as well we will see some funny photos with similar faces too

One of the photo's looked like a Xoar prop. Are you guys selling them in OZ? Funnily enough I need a new 14 x7 prop. I might get you to fill the shipping box with a new Addiction, seems such a shame to send a half empty box.......

Shaun- are those blue bird servo's realy up for the job for a plane this size and weight? I plan on using HS 65's all round (HB.)

How would durability of this model compare to say the Addiction?

Coonak,

A blue UAMR would be awesome. Blue and black with white trim.... very very sharp looking it would be.

Shaun and Adad.... If this transparent blue isn't forseen yet for the bipe, could we place a "special order" maybe? I even would take two or three of them (to have some spares *ggg*)!

Or a blue/black with white trim? I would die for that....

**please** **please** **please**

Absolutely!

Remember the Blue Bird 373MG servo has metal gears while the HS65 doesn't.

It is faster and has the same holding torque and it was excellent on this plane which by the way went through some abnormal loads during the test flight we have done and never stripped any gear.

In fact on the first prototype I was using a different type of servos (digital) which stripped gear a few time during the flights (I handled the plane even with two ailerons stuck on full deflection). Those were replaced with the BB373MG and they were great.

Donít worry we never recommend any gear we didnít test thoroughly

Wow!!!

That thing looks SWEET!!!

I knew it was coming, but it kinda hit me by surprise because I haven't been very active on the forums lately.

I must flip a coin to decide; green or yellow. I am thinking something this special and excentric needs to be yellow, but I will probably let a coin toss decide...

I hope you do it in blue like the Addiction I just ordered. But if worse comes to worse, green will be fine since that way, each of my PA planes will be a different color.
