You’ll slice through the sky with this brilliantly colored SkySword.

From HobbyKing:

With the PNF version, all the hard work is done with the powerplant already fitted and ready to go. The tricycle retracting undercarriage and all servos are completely installed with easy connect plugs for installing the wings. All decals have been fitted. Just fit the top of the “T” tail and install a receiver and battery and you will be ready to fly in no time.

The three bright LED lights make for easy orientation when coming in for a smooth landing. There is also working flaps to help with takeoffs and landings at the right speed. Extra air inlets for the battery hatch keeps the battery temperature down for maximizing flying time. The nose comes off for easier and safer transportation.

The SkySword is a fantastic flyer with extreme performance and excellent agility to provide a graceful display in

No mention of the original Aviation Design Diamond... they really should get credit for this design; HK just ripped it off.

Kyrre, they are not, just the oleo struts, he answered that for me in the other thread

Thanks. So buying the kit is virtually pointless then, at least compared to buying the PNP and just replace the edf unit for 6S. I have the FMS Yak-130, and I love the power and sound of that setup, it has to be one of the quickest edfs out of the box. I saw the HK video, and it gave me the impression that the Skysword has to much of that high pitched hairdryer sound, than the "wooosh" sound from the FMS setup.

I would just get pnp yes, it makes more sense, I'm used to traditional 5 and 6 blade fans so to me replacing the fan for faster speed on 4s with an Eflite 3200 or 3600kv motor makes more sense, I have several of them

I bet balancing the fan and motor should make it sound a bit better

The sound in the video seems fake to me, like it's added in editing.
