Looking nice! When I saw there were items at NL warehouse I hit the order button immediately, as I need a plane that I can throw into car anytime and fly it in the park nearby.

For the technics, at first I'll rummage through my hobby room as I think I have all I need: plenty of HXT-900s, variety of propellers and a motor-esc combination from my late GWS Formosa.

Got mine yesterday. Old version in NL warehouse; no servo mounts, no plywood reinforcements for horns etc. Appears to be hotwire cut. Not very precise work; there was ~2 mm difference in thickness of wing halves, as well in side stiffeners. Elevator "hinge" was cut almost through in one end.

But those are all minor issues, it's still nice plane for it's price I started to put it together with PU glue; with hint of water it fills the gaps very well.

Mmmm......not good, I guess there is a reason it is much less than the Hacker Super Zoom or Hyperion Sniper.

So true; you'll get what you pay for... Still, I'm confident that it will fly just fine for it's genre. Will propably find out next weekend.

Its is sooo cheap, great for a thrash about with no worries about crashing - from memory $25 for another kit?

To add something about flight characteristics, mine it great in a normal and inverted high-alpha, and hovers well, although aileron's aren't very effective in a hover (compared to similar sized 3D foamies I have flown), so have to watch for torque rolling with throttle changes.
Great elevator and rudder response though. I am getting 7-9 mins flight time with a 1000mAh 3S.

Mine is definitely overpowered with a 2836 1100kV motor and 10x3.8 prop, but doesn't feel heavy, it has a pretty silly top speed for a flat-pack foamie!

Oh, and takes to light crashes and cartwheeling like a champion! Except the usual crappy bendy undercarriage..

Oh and BTW, how is everyone attaching their wheels to LG? The heatshrink over the wire surprisingly didn't hold them on well lol.

Cannot wait for weekend; hope the weather gets better.. It's -26C right now! Shouldn't be that cold at weekend. Got some old Tgy motor that pulls 650g with 3s and 10x4 prop; with aow 490g it should be fine.

I left the LG out, there's too much snow on the field right now

edit: -29C (-20F) this morning Btw, couple of things caught my eye earlier:
Quote:
the carbon goes onto the wrong side of the stiffen, surely it would be better to put the carbon on the inside edge where it will sit flat
Further the stiffener is from the center line, more rigid is the structure.

Quote:
Should some differential be added to the aileron mix??
By all means, if you plan to fly it like a regular plane. For 3D flying, which this model is (to my understanding) intended, it's not usual or necessary.

It's true that collars that small are hard to find. I'd go to local el.shop to find a connector like this, take out the metal part and cut it in half.

Maiden flight was cancelled as my "old faithful" Flysky th9x didn't like the temperature below freezing point... It messed up the aileron channel, and it took me a few days to figure out the reason. Now it works again; hoping to get Hummer airborne next weekend...

Ah great idea about the electrical connector, cheers!

CG should be 120-130mm from the leading edge of wing as per manual.
