Hey guys Tony here from nitroplanes. I been have testing this plane and so far it has been doing great. Power is awesome! And the plane is really light... Currently we are asking Dynam to make a few improvements to this plane to help make it a better 3D plane. There is only one 9g servo for the rudder and elevator. Servo is too small and does not have enough throw in my opinion for 3D. For sports flying it does great, but not enough throws to hover nicely. A review will be up soon and you guys will love it

Tony, count me as one who's stoked!!!! Btw- BIG Hobbypartz fan here- I have 22 of your Sky lipo batts & 3 of your AC6 chargers...good stuff!!

Ok on this new Dynam plane, a few questions: 1st, what batt you using; and 2nd, what prop?

I already have 6 Sky 4S/2650/40C lipo's I've been running in my CarbonZ Yak, and it would be FANTASTIC to be able to run these in the new model here....according to HP they weigh 330g each. Will these work?

Next- the servos...imo, unless it's some kinda new thing, 9g servos are WAAAAAAAY underpowered for a 3D plane of this size. Tell Dynam to upgrade these to digital 18g servos (esc would need a 3A bec) with AT LEAST 40-45 oz-in or torque (@5V). Metal gear would be icing.

Can't wait to read the flt report!!!!!!

Awesome man! Thanks for being a big fan the Sky's work great for the value. For the testing I was using the stock 4s 2200mah 20c pack and the stock prop. I can't remember the exact size but it should be the same as what dynam states. I tried a Sky Lipo 4s 2200 40c and could not really tell the difference. Punch was just only a tad bit more. I agree 9g servos is not enough for a 3D plane this size. From the looks the stock servo are just regular 9g servos. I already asked Dynam to use bigger servos for the tail. Also this would help balance the plane a little better since it is a tad bit nose heavy. Even with the battery in the far back location I can tell the plane needs more weight in the rear for the 3D guys. I'm not near good enough to fully wing it out so the CG now is pretty good for my flying style

So many "must haves" before the year ends what to do, what to do... If the price is right on the sbach it will have to come before some of the others on my list
