What would be interesting is splitting the ailerons and making a crow setup.

I have yet to maiden it but I find deltas like these floaters. The elevons act like flaps.

I think you'll discover fairly quickly that this plane is not a floater. If you program the elevons to act like flaps, on a flying wing (or delta), it's going to be like severe down elevator. Throw that switch too close to the ground and at a high speed, it's going to take a dirt nap. But I guess you'll have to find that out for yourself.

I didn't mean literal flaps (wrong direction!).

My definition is floating could be different that others. I find the foam Habu a floater. I'm hoping this plane doesn't tip stall under half throttles - that's my definition of a non-floater (i.e Gee Bee!)

Voxel it does do pretty well in high alpha with just a tad of power. For me that is the best way to keep the aproach slow. I have thought of adding speed brakes too. Someone mentioned that they had it a few posts back. Might check with them to see how it does.

This plane is easy to land once you bring it slow. Take the plane high and try to make it stall in the air.. see how slow it goes.. it's pretty easy once you figure it out. I was bouncing all over the place until I decided to bring it way slow... easy peasy.

Ehh, "easy peasy"...... I'm not with you on that part. I still have days that I can land and days that I go ahead and put it in the grass....

Fentonflyers, i agree i have vids where my landing look picture perfect and other vids where i look like ive been only flying rc planes for a few days lol and landings with crosswinds are a pain as well. but with all the landing talk aside in the air it flys pretty good and predictable just like my styker minus the top end speed my stryker has.

Agreed. It's fun to fly and can do things no other plane can do. Well at least until now.

nice to see some more VT options, but IMO that FlyZone does not look half as good as the Scimitar

Yes but if it flys like a stryker and has vectored thrust then I am all in.

Reminds me of my SkyAngel Screamer. Some landings are perfect (slow gentle glide) and some are just awful. I'll try the slowest landings possible and attempt some slow low passes.
