Am in, ordered the yellow.

BTW the listed manual shows a 6s setup in it and recommends a 6s lipo. Minor details but these are the things that seem to cause hk customer service so much issues as am pretty sure it will be a 4s setup in it stock.

Yes this is in the manual

Battery:6S 3300mAh 40C Li-Po

Brushless Outrunner Motor,2842/2100KV(6S)

But the HK site description is showing this as 4S - so which is it??

The manual also lists the yellow version as orange, which leads me to believe it is a copy and paste error for the 6S/4S limo size.

I think it was a 6S for the 90mm SkySword?

Perhaps Ian or Stephen will chime in with an update.

Pretty sure it will be 4s as one of the testers said that is what there flying but no doubt the customer service will get the odd punter asking for a new motor/esc when it's ran up for the first time per manual on 6s��

The bigger one is 6s but a much bigger motor with lower kv and bigger esc so not a direct copy and paste there.

Looked like they toyed with the idea of 6s and perhaps will be available at a later date?. Least I know what kv to go if I decide to go 6s in the future. Wonder if stock esc is 6s capable?.

No matter to me I suppose with them small chicken legs and wheels I will need to keep her light and aim for runway landings.

Anybody know if it is epo foam ? Also the approx speed stock ? Not that is of great importance now as I pulled the trigger from international site. Will compare it speed wise to my foamboard version.

Nice surprise, to see a smaller version appear. I so far managed to resist buying the 90mm ... will it require MORE effort, or less, to resist grabbing this smaller one?!

The 90mm version is certainly EPO foam, so one can assume this 70mm will also be EPO.

I love the yellow colour, just worried about stopping on my very short and bumpy dirt strip, which is about 50 metres long.

Over here in Euroland it was a no brainer, be hard to get a metal retract 9 servo modern plug and play wing 70mm EDF for any cheaper (impossible) and the design is already proven, bigger one is a great flier.

Rochobby 70mm super scorpion retails for similar and is nowhere near as equipped.

Alright ... I am in for a yellow Sword as well. Hard to beat a 70mm EDF jet for that price. And my price dropped to $161.67 after logging in.

Thanks for the code Don. You have (again?) contributed to my delinquency.
