E-flite's New Carbon-Z Scimitar.... WOW!

WOW! have you seen this

looks like a Stryker on STEROIDS


The E-flite Carbon-Z Scimitar is true satisfaction for the RC pilot who desires flight performance and adrenaline pounding excitement previously thought impossible from a conventional aircraft platform. The fantasy-scale Carbon-Z Scimitar, designed by world aerobatic champion Quique Somenzini, bursts open the performance envelope with an evolutionary compound-delta flying wing. At the heart of the advanced Carbon-Z Scimitar is a specially tuned Q-Power system harnessed inside a revolutionary single-axis, vectored-thrust propeller system. In combination with the precision of carbon rod hinged elevons and twin rudders, a refreshing level of maneuverability can be explored after less than an evening’s worth of assembly time.


Exceptionally strong and lightweight Carbon-Z structure
Digital high-speed servos installed
Single screw access to the electronic equipment
Effective front and side cooling inlets with interior venting
High-quality socket-head hardware throughout
Distinctive color scheme for superior visibility

this thing looks super cool and i love that it has retracts.

But for the price of it i could could have 2 or 3 planes.

Just cant justify this one.

I already have a parkjet mkII. It just needs a 3s and it should be alot more fun.
