Any idea if the current Stream fuse will fit the new wing?

Replace the black in #7 with your favorite color and that would be the bomb.

Or white

let's play poker

I hope the fuse will be a little different:
1 - shorter nose
2 - another ballast box
3 - shorter tail boom

that's just a prediction

Nah, a white topside is amazingly visible at a distance. The contrast as the plane circles is outstanding.

With a black bottom, having black on top doesn't make as much sense, visibly-speaking, as having a fluoro color on top.

Pretty sure it's a brand new fuselage.

OK, since I just got a new fuse, I hope

1. The wing seat will be the same, but it looks like a higher aspect ratio so that seems unlikely.
2. The mount holes will be the same distance apart as the Stream, but for the same reasons above, seems unlikely
3. Given 1 & 2, Stream wings will be discounted

Glad to see the positive feedback!

No, the old wing will not fit the new fuselage of course, both the wing and the fuselage are very different. Maybe the old tails will fit the new tailboom, but I cannot guarantee it

Retirement is good
Funny how bling sells stuff. Given production prototypes are being test flown, I'm far more interested in wing area, airfoil section, dimensions, tail volumes, part weights, control surface actuation types (2 in pod / 4 in pod ?), ballast provisions, predicted price point... you know, data.

Bling doesn't predict performance or utility. (DUH)

The molds are still available of course, so they can produce the old Stream, if there is enough demand to switch production.
All concerned parties are advised to stock up on Stream kits right now


The airfoils are mostly based on Zone V2 with some tweaks by Tom Siler.
Two servos in the nose, two servos in the wings.

Geez Oleg, you could have given me a hint yesterday. Second on the extra over time for this one.
