Yes the specs do look good, will post my experiences with it as soon as it gets here, no doubt I'll be asking more questions than giving advice though.

Next on the shopping list before it gets here is a charger anyone got any recommendations?

Don't worryJust seen the charger recommendations thread

The IFLY 4S is available here http://www.hobby-wing.com/idea-fly-4...uadcopter.html
But the ones in the picture should be the IFLY 4, they may not update it.

If that price is correct for an RTF version I think I will be joining you.

Update, just purchased one!
Right on Mate!
I cant wait to see what this thing can do.. and how long its going to last before a bonehead like me will break it.. LOL!!
I think you and I will be among the first to offer in-depth reviews, trials & tribulations, from a novices perspective..

Get Christmas done first though..

Hey guys,
I'm new here, after reading the whole thread I decided to order one from HK early last week. At which point there wasn't any confirmation on when the 4S would be coming out. Now I'm just wondering if I will be able to get the upgraded FC, and how much it will be. And will it really be able to lift 300g more than the 4? They both have the same motor and esc combo, but the 4s claims 700g payload while the 4 says 400g.
That's all for now. I will post my thoughts when I recieve it, hope to get some good arial video with this Have done a bit with planes and heli's, but quads seem to be more stable than heli's and (obviously) slower than planes I look forward to it!

That's because 'I' was the original author of that pdf.....
