The fastest wing in the world just got better.

I love my Theory Type W. It goes with me if I'm flying RC. You can bet I'm excited about the newest version!

From Horizon:

Designed for pro-level FPV wing pilots, the Blade® Theory™ Type W Team Edition race wing delivers outstanding performance. This wing provides pilots with every advantage when racing against the best wing-pilots in the world. New black EPP foam construction offers unequaled durability for a wing in this size while the 2206-2450Kv brushless motor accepts 3S or 4S Li-Po batteries to suit mild or wild flying styles. Fully-integrated flight components such as digital metal gear servos, newly optimized AS3X® stabilization technology and SAFE® technology provide rock-solid stabilization at blazing speeds. The variable-power video transmitter allows seasoned pilots to adjust to every environment or race, while the OSD provides pilot name and voltage. Plus, transport is a snap with the intuitively designed click-in wings and servo plug-ins. With all these features packed into such a compact airframe there is still room for a Mobius or Legend style HD video camera. Overall, the Theory Type W Team Edition pushes the envelope of the race wing platform forward.

So is it the same as last year WHITE version?
(besides the color)?

If so, the aerodynamics is notoriously guilty of the "bobbing up/down"
oscillations.....NOT GOOD!

Didn't hear a whole lot about the white version, and I reckon it would look better if they scratched the nose and just went with a sleeker shape.

It looks like a nice model - but the price! You can source components and put together a similar wing for way less $$!

The 'white' version....

This simply looks like an identical but larger version of the little C-Ray of a while back. The C-ray was totally white but came with a big sheet of peel-off stick-on decals so you could do it up in all sorts of colors or designs including military. Really helped to see which was way was up. Or DOWN! It also was a fast and snappy little flying wing. Had to be careful how you tossed it as that rear prop could quickly re-arrange a few molecules of the top of your hand!

$3 bills no way I could make 3-4 race wings for that price. I believe the white version wasnt a big hit do to the TX getting hot and not enough cooling.

Its funny how theres a decent following on this plane, but NO SUPPORT
from Horizon? (or even a hobbiest that works at that warehouse for input?).
Its becoming a waste of space if there is no input from Horizon.....

just sayin'/askin'

Anyone know if the EU/UK ones will be stuck on 25mw?

And how do you get the HH EU site to display in English? just switched to a Mac and now both the .EU and sites are nothing but German. Brilliant.
