Nope it won't get the job done. The plane is 40 inch span and is very heavy for it's size. I want to say it's 69 ounces. On my iPhone so I can't look it up right now. The first two seconds of every flight scares me to death.

It's funny ripping around the sky at 160+ doesn't scare me at all. It's the first 50 feet that's scary

Man did this thread ever die


I have yet to maiden mine yet. I am flying my newly acquired (used) Superfly. And soon to be flying a new Tuffwing!!

I am wanting to get used to a wing with the birds that can handle a few crashes without blowing up.

I launch mine by holding the left wing. Full power point it up at 45 deg and let it go with a light frisbee toss.

Super easy and my fingers are nowhere near the prop.

Tried regular method a few times and it was a PITA.

Die? Because there was no post for a day?

Then again, unless there are lots of mods or lots of problems, only so much can be said about a plane before the posts start to fall off.

I have done the forward toss with no problems at all each time...Finger holes are perfect...half throttle maybe and an upward toss...You really have to get your hands in the way to get a prop strike lol.

Yes but you are limiting your throws for ail and elev for normal flying.

Well guys, I'm onboard the Stryker Train bound for Funsville

Before I maiden it I'm setting up all my mixes. Can you assign the dual rudders to two separate channels to spread them like a brake for landing? Try as I might I cant do it with my DX8 - it's like they may be on a Y-lead....

Other than that it all seems good to go!!

I believe the rudders are on a Y lead so you might have to plug the one rudder servo into another channel on the brick and use some mixing
