Just noticed this one in the BG listing:

XK A800 4CH 780mm 3D6G System RC Glider Airplane Compatible Futaba RTF

Looks great, but a N60 iron core motor (brushed), a bit sad really.
WHY???
The XK A600 has a 1404 brushless motor, why not use that???

Yeah, it's a pity the A800 isn't brushless

It’s usually hard to beat the price/performance of a XK rtf. Barring the v2 Whirlwind I have of course. *shakes fist*

I’ve been thinking about this one since it popped up on BG.

Ordered from Tom Top because over at BG it's been 'under restocking' for a while now, only to find my Tom Top order still 'processing' after 5 days

As my A800 order at Tomtop is still 'processing', I dropped them a line and just received word that it'll still take a while for the A800 to become available, despite the 'Usually will be shipped in 72 hours' on their website.

First video I found of someone reviewing the A800, also giving some tips:

XK a800 , watch this video before you buy. Remote control 4 channel airplane glider for beginners (7 min 19 sec)


Thai review of the A800, but I have no idea what the guy is talking about:

Mine was finally shipped about a week ago.

My XK A800 arrived yesterday (from Tomtop), but I didn't have the time to open the package; now I did:



Box was well packaged and survived its voyage is excellent condition; no dents or anything, so the A800 was in pristine condition

BTW: the X4 transmitter is hidden in the bottom of the foam box

There isn't much of a different in wingspan between the XK A700 (a.k.a. F959 SkyKing) and the XK A800: 74 cm and 78 cm resp.



The wings of the A700 are much easier removed tho; just pull them from the fuselage, while the wings of the A800 are screwed on top of the fuselage with 2 screws.
