** just read through the actual specs. 2205s used. multirotor motors doable it seems. I bet quite a few of us have a spare 2204/2205 laying around.

Perhaps I can get some clubmates to get some and have some true FPV wing carnage!

a smaller motor works just fine, just need to prop it correctly.

Count me in.this sounds sweet and i love Blade products with safe,very relaxing if you want,click it off and all out war lol,cant wait im pre ordering the non fpv ver,what are the flight times just cruising i see 5min is that for all out pedal to the metal,how bout just cruising seeing the sights,i plan on just running 3s so i guess i can move up to a bigger bat,just want something this size to cruise out front of house after work,or chuck in the car take on a trip ,,no racing for me but im sure i will pop a 4s and check out the speed.Steve i still have my original 350 with a million flights and safe saved that more than i can count,i could flip it roll cartwheel it and after losing it hit safe switch and its upright looking at you saying are u done or ready for more,lol maybe this can be setup with stagility like the 350,that be sweet

I get this hint of a movement now thats like "well u fly quads now graduate to wings" and yeah and I fly helis and quads mostly as theres no substitute for vtol and after damage repair they can look andfly as new....with the foam planes, I can warp/creep wings just depending on how I hang them in garage, most likely damage them in transport, repairs gonna mess with c.g plus phugoid/oscillations in flight whatever....just general lack of durability and likely to fly and look like ass in short order

You've obviously never owned a proper racing wing.

Wow I would have thought for a flying wing the flying time on a 4 cell would be way greater than 5 minutes. I like it, however with anything RC , run time is important especially when it comes to flying... Thats a big negative for me..

Hey HH or Steve,this thread has been to quiet,starting to scare me,any word on the release date,im chomping at the bit,have something this size i just built but its not a wing but its similar in size and weigh.but that is taking a bit to get it dialed in,i am sooooo looking forward to getting this bad boy and slapping a bat in it,kinda reminds me of the stryker we had over the field. that thing hummed along,this was pre stablizating and before fpv,you actually had to fly it los at 100 mph ,that was awesome,that was z foam,had more glue and tape at the end than z foam but flew as good as new and as fast
