I think it was a loop sticking out brushing the rotor housing, and it finally gave way.
You can file and sand a solder joint to size after you make the connection. Maybe that would help make it fit under the can.

Is the UM stryker on the Realflight sim?


I got the bug and bought the UM stryker 180 today. Then I went to the RF sim to practice and could not find the UM. The old stryker without rudders is there only.
I also looked at the Pheonix sim and it didn't have any strykers. Is there a sim for the new strykers?

Fly the old Stryker in the simulator. You use the rudders mostly for the special moves, like the boomerang (up or inverted), and I doubt that a simulator could teach you those anyway. So practice all your normal flying on the simulator, but keep the rudders for when you're in flight. And trust me, use them only when you're WAY UP....

Hi all, first post, and im asking for help!
I just received my striker, all was working well, then while trying to program the esc for the prop brake, I somehow lost throttle! (It revs for a moment, dies, then can repeat)
Any ideas how to get back to square one so I can fly?
Thanks for any help,

If you use the prop brake, you will break the prop on landing if it stops around the 6 o'clock position.

Just noticed that the UM Stryker is $129 at HH

Since when did the price go down?

Maybe it's related to the recent-availability of the new UMX MiG-15.

That's seeming to be a great little EDF, with AS3X.

The MiG can compete with the UM Stryker for the "cool micro-speedster" slot in many guys' lineup.......so demand for the Stryker could be softening, and this is HH's pricing response.

Or maybe HH is planning to release a UM Stryker with AS3X????

I think that HH dropped the old Beast's price, shortly before announcing the Beast 3D.

Before -- or after -- you bought yours?

As much as everyone would like an AS3X Stryker, I think we have been told that it is not compatible with the Elevon Mix...

A mkII AS3X may well be able to do it but do you really think the Stryker needs it?
Imagine the gyros reaction when it is put in a Boomerang!!!

Yes, maybe the new programmable AS3X brick (AS6410NBL) could be persuaded.......
