For about $190 if you add up the basic airframe parts.

i noticed they give the top speed of this one 10mph slower than there evader with the same power setup. i wonder why?
thicker & larger wing? if you watch the two vids back to back its also imidiatly visiable.

Just picked up a phazer at my lhs, It sure is sweet, glass is perfect and the wing covering is really well done.

Pics to come!

The fuse is thicker and being a delta its got a little reflex(2-3mm up) on the elevons. so thats probably whats up with that

Got my Phazer yeterday at my LHS. It was very well packaged. I already assembled the fan unit and installed it in the fuselage. Took me a couple of hours. It took some sanding to get the motor housing mount to fit properly and perfectly. Guys take your time on this step and make sure to follow the instructions on fitting and mounting the cone adapter. Any mistakes here after the glue sets and it will take a lot of time to correct it. Right now that's all I've done for the day, this jet can be put together fast ! Just for kicks i have a Wemotek unit laying around and measured it and the fuse, I am pretty sure it might fit but its going to take quite some effort to make it happen.... I'll keep posting on my build....

I got my little bird today and it looks siiiiiiiiick

My first impression were BIG as the planes scale is bigger then of the Evader as you can tell by the comparison to the evader, there is at least 10-20% more battery room in the nose, also there are nice touches like the blind nut for the screw that secures the battery tray to the fuse (On the Evader your screwing the battery tray directly to the wood and it wears off after some time), Vertical fin has a spare in it (due to size of vertical fin).

Over all, I like very much

Here are some pictures of the fuses structure inside (very clean and simple with not much to deal with).

This thing is a winner as far as I see it, Bye Bye Evader.....Hello Phazer

Lots of room for ducting.

The inside of the airframe looks pretty clean so if you keep things neat during the build you don't really need ducting. Given the larger size, this would be a good candidate to squeeze in a hot 64 or 70mm setup.

I could almost imagine a Wemo 70 with intake lip mounted directly above the cheater hole and then clean it up with a custom hatch cover.
