I have the feeling it's simply a mistake on BGs side and the plane never had gyro. Pity. For now I won't be ordering one, as it was also the switchable gyro that made me notice the plane.

There is a version of this plane with gyro! I have asked volantex via e-mail about it!
Maybe they have sent the wrong version to BG!?

I will see it if my parcel arrives!

I'm flying a lot from just fields, so no runways. Think I'm far better of with a belly-land plane with a push prop.

Just to let you know on the "gryo or no gyro" question. The guy in Banggood that sent me the plane now understands there's no gyro in my one, and has passed it up the chain to see what's going on.

Looking at how the plane has been around for a while, I'm wondering if it's just old stock or something. Dunno. As soon as I get an update, I'll let you guys know as well.

So was that decided by you or the carrier?

BG wrote in an E-mail that the carrier (tracking says in Asia!) returned the parcel. Reason unknown.

Wasent my decision! They asked me if they should send the plane once more.
I dont want this plane for this price without gyro! So I mailed back that they can cancel the order.

EDIT: CP349800089CN is the tracking number. Track17 shows a lot, but I cant say what happened exactly!

It is in chinese, but in the right lower corner on Track17 is a translate button.
There is an "Alert"! I got this "Alert" pretty soon! As far as I remember, before anyone mentioned that there is no gyro!

That's weird. Hope you'll get your refund quickly.

Well, I am happy now that my V765-2 was returned!
I have found a kit which fits almost perfect to my needs! (replacement parts available)
http://www.ebay.de/itm/Borstel-Slowf...kAAMXQPGJSMEfk

I can install my own electronics, battery size, receiver, stabilizer, FPV or even a small Pixhawk.
A lot of space inside the canopy!
And I will have the fun building it!


The Magnum reloaded or Magnum reloaded XL is a similar plane! Floats can be added! Maybe my next project!
There is also a acro version of the magnum reloaded, but from what I have seen its faster!

Also some of the flitetest kits are interresting. For example the FT Simple Storch.

All the mentioned planes in this thread are flying really slow. There isnt a real runway needed! And I think that they are relly durable!
Magnum Reloaded, maiden flight (4 min 9 sec)

Magnum Reloaded - lots of fun (7 min 14 sec)

I like his videos and he has done some crazy flying with his Magnum Reloaded! Really like that plane

It's a great plane to start building your own I think.

I have ordered this one! The Slowly, or Borstel!

It is the one from the eBay link above!

More space inside, slightly lighter and slightly bigger wing span than the Magnum reloaded.
Slowly rc plane , slow motion . (0 min 36 sec)

But I guess one of my next projects will be a giant Magnum reloaded. There is a manufacturer in Germany which is able to miling the parts for a 2000mm Magnum reloaded.

Looks cute, but I kinda like the Magnum Reloaded more. Not sure if I would go for a 2000mm ( ) version tho. I really like its original dimensions and the possibility to add floaters

Yes, I like the Magnum too! But first I want to have a plane with more space inside for my first FPV experiments!
There is a original Magnum reloaded XL version with 1200mm.
