No sale in the EU or UK warehouses.

I am getting the impression that HK will be OK(well I hope so..), that they made some mistakes in recent years expanding into non-RC stuff, so got weighed down with a bunch of dumb stock they couldn't move, but that they want to settle in and just focus on RC, and planes specifically. They are apparently having troubles and in the process of sorting it out. I sure hope they do.

The blue one looks like it's done in the EU and UK warehouses. The yellow and silver one (the one I'd want anyway) is still there, at €122 or so. Still a decent price, but on the other hand I have no business buying any new planes. I have more than I can possibly fly, and no room in the hangar to be honest. That's why I'm kind of hard core about sales. If it's on sale then I can kind of budge and squeeze one in. But at the normal price I can maintain my discipline better...

I understand brother...

I'm a bit "over the limit" myself with regards to hangar space, but at least I can justify getting this little one by the price, and the fact that the size is very agreeable to my current hangar limitations !

Here's the maiden flight :

I do like the idea of this plane as a hopefully more fun alternative to my PZ Wildcat. Which as nice of a beginner plane as it was I just came to find totally boring. Like flying a kite. Just too slow. I haven't flown it in ages and have no desire to.

I personally think propping DOWN to an APC 9x6 really wakes this thing up !

HAH !

Hey Charley, lots of work and flying when I can...!

Since I got the Buff dialled in, I can't help myself from opening her up, even if it's not remotely close to scale

Next outing I'll try to keep her within a somewhat more scale flight envelope

All the best!

Not the flight envelope, it's that it's just a dot. When we're flying, we can see it but the camera doesn't see it the same way. I have some video cams now. I'll try to see how to keep it closer in .

Just curious, I shoot all my videos in 1080p; have you opened them up full screen? I usually watch YouTube videos in full screen, and although using the famous hat-cam isn't ideal, at least you can see more of the plane in full screen mode

Lipo: You sold me. Ordered one this morning. For the past couple of years around this time I keep getting that urge for something dead simple to throw out into the sky and have some fun. Hope to see you again at SEFF this year.
