Here's what GP is saying regarding the release dates. They sure got back to me fast. Wow, they actually respond to inquiries on their website. At this rate I'll have my Sabre before my HH Beast I ordered through my LHS back in mid-December actually shows up. This makes me glad I'm not waiting for a mig.

"The Tx-R (transmitter ready) version is due at the end of this month. The RTF version is due in at the end of March."

One question that wasn't answered... If I am using the Anylink, will the wireless trainer function still work if the student is on Anylink and the master is on one of the Tactic radios?

I'm thinking the RTF version might be useful and still get an Anylink for future solo use.

AnyLink cannot be used with the wireless trainer feature on Tactic 2.4Ghz radios.

I wonder if it is possible to just put in a Molex Picoblade type receiver.
So the question is: what type of plugs do the servos have?

I'm not feeling like using some kind of magic "connect-any-transmitter-module".
Just another thing to put in your flightbox.

The Servos and ESC include a "Futaba micro" style connector.

The Sabre has landed.

We just got our review sample along with an AnyLink here at the Fly RC offices. It took longer to unpack things than it did to hook up the AnyLink to the Futaba 10C and give it a quick bench test.

2.5 oz plane +6oz wing load = one fast plane for indoors??? Don't think it would be good to fly inside a even big gym. Why would you get a 15" plane and fly outside with it when getting a reasonable size one to fly outside? Small is ok but small fast don't understand. High wing load isn't what you would like to have for an indoor plane. Nice but somewhat not practical. Get a good size plane that flies well outside and get a nice small low wing load plane for inside. It's great to see a 2s bl motor little jet and good on details ...but about 10 feet away what do you see? not much at all. What fun is that??
