Thanks Robert. This is a news article which differs from the regular forum post. It appears on the homepage and in the channel pages.

This is super next level speaking of how an EDF flies. I agree with you wanting an ARF+ with only servos installed, but I also understand the crew selling things that work out of the box. We will se what the future has to bring in that front. Atleast you don't have to use their Tx system as if you go with Eflite....

counting money and making budgets really fall out of the equation when it flies like nothing other by factor 3. What shall you do?

Before you dismiss using the Aura 8, you should see how the model flys and feels. They spent a lot of time on the std and expert setup. There are built in mixes, read the manual. The A8 is amazing in how it will make a small model fly “BIG”. They have done all the the setup, you simply follow their Tx setup instructions in the manual, and your set to go.

It's expensive, but it seems to land very slow.

That's why, I'm really considering it.

Is it really suitable for EDF beginners?

The FlexJet has reasonable wing loading, and very good aerodynamics.
The Aura also makes it fly big and lowers the pilot workload (even more so in the wind).

This combined with great power loading and runway performance both on takeoff and landing would make it a great first jet for a competent sport pilot IMO.

Chances are the answer is no, but it’s worth asking. So, any plan to offer it as a Kit Plus where the power system is emitted, but has all the rest of the electronics? I just have too many power systems sitting around to buy a PNP with a power system I don’t plan to use.

In the othe thread, David said that if enough people committed with a deposit that an ARF+ could be doable.

Mine is still flying. Has a Habu EDF. The stock one was horrid. The power canopy and trick gear are really cool. Speaking of cool...its made of cooler foam lol.
