For launching problems try a short little bungee launcher which works great.

9g micro servo is ok for stinger 64mm, just make sure that it is installed properly

Stinger Review


I maddened my new Stinger (got it from Banana Hobby) last night. It really exceeded my expectations for a $90 PNP jet. The model was easy to assemble, appears really well made (and packed in the box). Hand launching was a little rough, but once it picked up some speed it flew like it was on rails. I am only 6 months into this hobby, with less than 5 hrs total stick time, and I had not problem flying this jet. It was fast at full throttle, but slowed down nicely at half throttle, and was easier to land than my Parkzone P-51. I am using a Spektrum DX7S with an Orange Receiver. I put in 40% expo into the ailerons on the second flight to make the jet a little less twitchy, and that was all i needed to make each subsequent flight effortless an predictable.

As others have suggested, true CG is about 5 mm back from manufacture's recommendation. Using a 3s 1800 pack makes for a perfect CG w/o any additional effort. This is a really well made and engineered plane that is well worth the $90 price tag. I am going to put in a BEC next just in case the stock ESC fails (as HK and BH products tend to do), but if I get 10 flights out of the stock power system, I will be happy.

Is there anyway of fitting a 28mm motor in the stock fan housing?

None whatsoever, unless you want to cut out the motor tube and fabricate a new one.
Not worth it, IMHO.
Any particular reason why you want to use a 28mm motor?

Get the 70mm sport jet. So much easier than getting that motor to work in the Stinger.

Hi,

Maidened mine this weekend with the stock system and 3S 1800 battery. Three flights with me doing all the hand launching. It takes a good chuck, but it's not too bad. This is a really nice flying jet.

EDF Hobbies has a Wemo 64mm fan that will accept a 28mm motor.
I was going to do this with some 5s packs I have but I went with the cyclone power rig for now. The extreme 3950kv should make 4lbs of thrust lol.

For those of you who want a 64mm fan that will accept a 28mm motor. Here's a link to a couple of options.
