Love my Valiant 1.3. This version is a must have as well. I'm really glad to see a new balsa ARF. Coming out.

I like tower for some stuff but not motors or speed controls

I priced it with the ARF, motor and receiver from Horizon, servos from Tower and ESC from Hobby King.

You could probably use a G46 670kv from HobbyKing as well and save another $30 on the motor.

I was planning on this setup:

Hanger 9 Valiant 10cc $250.00
Hitec HS-625MG Servo (4) $120.00
S3004 for Flaps (2) (Already Have)
Leopard 5055/6T 1200 Watt 650kv $51.00
Sky Power 100A ESC $44.00
Battery 5-6S (Already Have)
APC 13x4 $5.00

Everything for about $470.00

Question, Do you think I will see much difference in the sport aerobatics from the HS-425BB over the HS-625MG servos?

I have been really been enjoying the Eflite 1.3m version of the Valiant immensely, actually more than I thought I would. I normally fly 3D and extreme aerobatics type aircraft but the little Valiant has found a place in my hanger. I keep mine on floats permanently and it has been flown off Lake Michigan, numerous inland lakes and some local gravel pits. Last week while attending a local float plane get together at the Clifford Lake Inn I suggested to one of my flying buddies that a little bit bigger and more powerful version might be nice and wouldn't you know it here it is. I've got an Extreme Flight Torque 4016-500 currently unemployed and it looks like it will be a nice match on 6s/3300 packs and an APC 15x7 prop.

Ali, any chance you could get a video of the float set up and installation along with some of your excellent flying off the water with the Valiant 10cc? We appear to have similar flying styles so if it flies anything like my my 1.3m Valiant as seen in my video below, I'm in.

Most of my warbirds are .60-.90 size. Only my Top Flite Giant Scale P47 and My Hawker Typhoon are not .60-.90

Looks like quality hardware too. Nice H9, i need one now.

I've had a few H9 planes and I don't even need to see any more to know that the quality on this bird will be top-notch. Been on the fence about buying the foamie and glad I waited! I think this will be a great all-around plane.

Yea, I also was dragging my feet on buying the 1.3 foamie. So glad this is coming out. I have owned or own just about every ARF I can find but H9. So I am anxious to see the quality on this plane.

I may stop by the LHS and pick the 1.3 up this weekend. I don't have any park flyers right now..
