What make/brand is the adapter? Where is it available?

Thanks.

It comes with the Beast UMX, and I assume the SBach as well?

I didn't see anything on Horizon's site to pre-order...How are you guys doing this????...

I'm using 15 gram 240 mAh batteries for my Sbach and Beast...These batteries should easily fit in the Stryker with little on no modification..At least nothing that the avrage modeller couldn't handle..

I've got my eyes on this to modify into a ducted fan..

Any particular reason?

These batteries appear (to me at least) to becoming the new standard for ultra micros. The Beast started it and then they followed up with the Sbach and now the UM Stryker.

I'm content. I like these batteries - especially the Hyperion ones. I've got ten 2s batteries. I think I have 6 2s 180's and 4 2s 240's and they work brilliantly with my Beast and Sbach. I'm sure the 240's will work great with this new offering from Parkzone.

So you don't plan on flying your Sbach anymore? I'm confused by this statement.

I'm sure you can still use the Sbach batteries in the UM Stryker... but better yet, just get yourself some 2s Hyp 240's and you should be happy with them as you can easily use them in your Sbach and the UM Stryker AND the Beast if you have one.

I had to purchase mine seperately. I don't thinks it comes with any E-flite or Parkzone plane at this time.

one reason is the price is a little higher for 2s lipos. and on top of that, im afraid of 2s lipos for an odd reason.

I have 4 hyp 180's..I bet these will run just as long as the stock 200.....just a guess. What do you think? Wonder if I should get a couple 240's.

Thanks for the Video Chuck T, that will make alot of people really happy and that's a good thing, well done PZ for yet another UM, keep them coming! Personally I am not keen on planes that look like jets but aren't, so I am interested in this new BL motor, does anyone think it will be suitable for the Beast? A little extra Grunt could be fun.

I'm late to this party... but holy carp!! This looks uh-mazing.

I have been flying my new F-27Q very time at the field and I love that thing. Having a mini version would make my life complete!

"Late August" shipping?? Cool! I can't wait for late September so we will only have a couple more months of waiting! (yes, I'm skeptical).

Way to many airplanes!
Suddenly hit me... Why didn't they put the servos on top instead of under (I still worry a bit about the horns being damaged on landings).
