E-Flite Carbon-Z® P2 Prometheus BNF and PNP


Looks like someone opened the bag too soon as i saw this come up this morning but then all links to it disappeared

looks nice if it happens!



Put this code in from the photo to a fresh page http://bit.ly/1PdKC9H which mentions nothing about this plane and this was what the link lead to on the HH site

Sorry, your search for "efl_prometheus" did not return any results. Please try another search

cheers chuck

A little more info i found

7 hours. Let's go with our fireworks at news! grin emoticon like emoticon
In Skip Stewart's spectacular high-Alpha Messerflug on the airfield - with the e-Flite Carbon-Z P2 Prometheus. You've always wanted to fly like skip Stewart? No problem. After the p3 we get also the p2 prometheus in the hangar of our skip Stewart Airshow models. By The Carbon-Z-technology is the p2 so hard and stiff like a wooden model. Through the significantly lower weight, however, much more powerful. The E-Flite Carbon-Z P2 Prometheus - at least as impressive as the original.
Psst... Hold on. In an hour, there's the next model. wink emoticon

Overview

From his performance of the world’s smallest loop to being the only air show pilot to combine aerobatics with motocross by flying his P2 Prometheus under a jumping motorcycle, Skip Stewart brings dare-devil creativity to precision aerobatics. Coined “High-Octane Aerobatics,” Skip’s performances offer an appetizing menu of stunts that blanket the horizon with mind-blowing agility at an energy level that packs airshows around the globe with cheering fans.

The E-flite® Carbon-Z® P2 Prometheus aircraft is for aerobatic pilots who want precision in an unlimited biplane with unique character. Based on the custom built P2 Prometheus airplane flown by Skip Stewart, Mike McConville adapted the unique design as a model with performance that’s as inspirational as Skip’s original. Exclusive Carbon-Z technology allows a healthy sized model such as this to be rigid like a conventional all-wood airframe, yet lightweight so it can have a larger performance envelope than any other biplane in its class. Durable Z-Foam™ material used in construction means that any bumps along the way are simple to repair. The Carbon-Z P2 Prometheus looks the part too with flame-laden graphics and control surfaces large enough to handle bold moves such as the Skip’s signature high-alpha knife edge passes. Engineered to fly great from the start, the Bind-N-Fly® version of this hot rod features built-in and expertly tuned AS3X® technology which makes flying an extreme aerobatic thriller such as this even more satisfying.

The Famous P2 Prometheus
Air show performances by Skip Stewart in his P2 Prometheus are enjoyed by aviation fans around the globe. The Carbon-Z® P2 Prometheus biplane is capable of performing Skip’s signature moves with power spare and the kind of control authority that’s a pilot’s dream.

AS3X® Technology
The BNF Basic version of the Carbon-Z P2 Prometheus biplane features the advanced AS3X® (Artificial Stabilization – 3-aXis) system. Built into the Spektrum™ 6-channel AR636A receiver, AS3X technology is what helps give this extreme aerobatic hot rod an incredibly solid feel in the air. It works behind the scenes to help counter the effects of wind and turbulence by combining multi-axis sensing with specially tuned flight control software. As a result, the P2 Prometheus is a more enjoyable experience because your workload to fly smoothly is significantly reduced.

Mike McConville Design
World-class aerobatic pilot, Mike McConville, worked closely with the full-size P2 design and adapted the unique biplane flown by Skip Stewart to deliver the perfect balance of performance, optimal power and strength.

Carbon-Z® Technology
Exclusive Carbon-Z technology features composite construction that allows major components like the wing to be chambered, significantly reducing weight while increasing rigidity to comparable all-wood construction.

Expertly Tuned
The installed Spektrum™ 6-channel DSMX® receiver of the BNF Basic P2 Prometheus version features AS3X® technology that’s been programmed to give the feeling of expertly tuned flight, right out of the box.

Brushless Power
Under the sleek cowl is a powerful 50-size brushless power system that features a high-torque 525Kv motor, a 70-amp brushless ESC and 15x5.5 propeller for the authority to hover and accelerate vertically.

High-Voltage System
With the 4400mAh 6S 22.2V Li-Po battery you provide, expect extreme performance for high-alpha knife edge flight, vicious tumbles, Harrier moves and hover-power that provides unlimited vertical.

Easy Assembly
Each plug-in wing features carbon-fiber wing tube support that secures with a single screw. The aileron linkages simply snap into place and concealed through-pins quickly connect the I-struts into molded pockets.

Pre-Ordered. Can't wait! Was just thinking last week as I was flying the P3 it would be great to have a 1.2m or larger plane of this. My dreams came true.

Think it will handle the 5000mah batteries from the Carbon-Z T-28?

Maybe but lighter is always better with 3d. If you plan on sport flying I would think it would be fine as long as it fits.

Here is a video that is currently working. All the others I have seen, including the one on the HorizonHobby web site show as "Private".

Hmm. I've watched the one on Horizon's website over and over again!
I've gotta sell some planes and make some room. I must have this plane.
