TBS Crossfire or DragonLink?

I already nominated "Daemon"....he is fair and he knows a lot about planes!!!!

heck, he even criticized the new plane from RMRC (Penguin), its probably the hottest FPV specific plane out there !

YOU Da' maaan Philthyy!

Yup. Thats why I felt like I needed to add his name in again.

@LexusFPV....sorry if I irritated you by my "nomination". I just wanted to add my .00000002 cents that I think Daemon is a good choice for a reviewer.

A "mini" version that can break down to fit in a standard 22 inch carry on would be nice.

A mini version?? THAT would be really cool! I would be especially interested in that, as long as it flies well.

TBS Crossfire or DragonLink?
not to go off topic, but Ibcrazy has a "mini" version of this plane, its called "SPECTER v2".... i think it uses' only a 3s-2200mah Flight Lipo. A lot rave about it. Its a Plug and Play with all the FPV gear onboard (from RMRC, so its top CP antennas') Assembled. Its Receiver Ready for ~$650.00. Its average flight times are ~15-22min.....

Now back to our regular scheduled program....SKYHUNTER

This looks great, what's the average shipping charge to the US? I love the ability to dismantle for transport.

TBS Crossfire or DragonLink? says '3' recommended 8-15g servos,

This is good news to me, I don't use Rudder anyways:-)
(so I guess its Elevator, Ailerons only). I like it like that.
SIMPLE and does its' job!
(rudder channel is my 'panning' camera channel).

for those that ordered, what POWER SETUP are you guys using?
(ie....motor? prop.?) I have some Graupner 11x6 and 12x6 folders waiting to be used.

Are you all going for efficiency or all out power?

I can't wait to see if this does can carry 4s-10000mah+
(thats one heavy Lipo)

ouch...I didn't go through the whole sign up process but I figured the price would be high. At this point, that's to much. I know shipping from the far east can be pricey, that's just a tad on the high side, but about 40 bucks. I'm not into FPV flying at this point, just a camera or two for filming, but I'll wait to see what the reviews look like.
