I would think a lower KV motor with a slightly larger prop would work as well. I know I am not using the stock config for motor or prop on my Ventique 60e and it has amazing power.

Really David, saying that it has some "more advanced capabilities than the Extra".... Don't you realize that is like putting candy in front of a baby

Thanks to the whole Flex Team for keeping a balance of planes in the Flex lineup, Wish I had the money (and space) for all of them.

Keep up the excellent work... Any chance this plane will make it in time for SEFF?

I bought and flew one of the first preorder QQ Extra 300's and I'm still in love with it. I posted to QQ back then that a similar sized biplane would be awesome. I'm so stoked about this one. Even though I have four bipes already, I'll be preordering this new Mamba10. It seems every QQ Flex product is a home run, way to go guys!

P.S. I LIKE the Lime Green....
More of a personal impression.... it carries a bit more energy for things like Pop-Tops and other Tumbles. (you can see one such tumble in the video)
It is a little more 'go where you point it' in things like point and slow rolls and a little less neutral than the Extra. (Good for us old school jet guys).

While very friendly, it is probably not quite as easy for 'hover training' and the like compared to the Extra... ( I consider the extra to be the best '3D basics trainer' in the foam parkflyer class.

We did not set out to exactly duplicate the QQ Extra characteristics and capabilities... all aircraft designs are a set of trade-offs... our goal is always to have a broad capability. The Mamba 10 pretty much nailed our goals.

Hope this helps.

David
p.s. We also have an alternate setup selection in the Aura that we will talk about later.

Don't send one to Chuck seems I end up just everything he flys, I'm a sucker for Green and Bips. Glad it't coming in the spring so I can make room at Perry, funny how if I get rid of a plane or two it makes the wife happy.

Its terrible being and addict. We all seem to have to cajole our wives into giving their blessing. My wife is really good about it. As long as enough time passes between plane purchases all is well. Now, I have to start working on my -Why I need this plane story.

I have started working my wife towards this being my B-Day present. On the positive side for me is she seems to be partial to bi-planes. However, I may still have to sell a plane to get a new one. The sacrifices we have to make.
