High speed doesnt really interest me. Parkzones Strykers look too fragile and cost more than they should. How easy is the build? I have a disease that makes my hands tremble when I'm trying to build but I'm OK when I'm flying or driving an RC Car or flying my Heli's. Thanks in advance for the help.
The Xeno is super easy to fly. And it's pretty fast too with the power setup. Not screaming but fast enough to be fun. And it's a glider too so you can take it up real high and fly for a long time unpowered and the stall speed is very low, so you can fly very relaxed if you choose to. About the only thing that is tricky is dumping speed on landings, it doesn't want to slow down. But it's physically tough and you really have to screw up badly to get significant damage. Highly recommend it.
The fins are a little small, but the wobble is not a huge issue. It looks bad but doesn't really effect flight control. You can make the fins bigger with more foam or some abs plastic sheet. I haven't bothered, I usually am flying fast and there's no wobble at high speeds.
