Enjoy that new Scimitar.
I am really digging mine.
One thing though is despite saying that you were going to maiden flight this thing just the way that it is, I recommend putting a spot of hot glue on the VTX antenna to secure it to the canopy so that it does not fall off and ruin the VTX.
I'll be out flying mine early tomorrow morning . Suppose to be a glorious day, weather wise.

Looking forward to see your review flight of this baby.
She is a nice step up from the Blade Torrent 110 by the way.

Thanks man! That is definitely the smart thing to do, but I always try to fly things stock to add the most value to my reviews. If I fry the VTX flying it stock, then I will share that with my subscribers and HH will be on notice they need to step up their designs in the future. Of course, if it survives, then I will do it anyway and it won't ruin my maiden screencap and I can make a "Mod Video" for it too

I am glad that is it a nice step up from the Torrent. I ended up getting the originally Babyhawk instead, which was pretty awesome, but still needs some PID tuning to be optimized. I am not Joshua Bardwell, so I am going to fly this instead, hoping I don't kill it lol

Wow .I am flabbergasted with what I read.
Is this the gate for the perfect world ????.
Give us a break,
Show us some meat.
So easy to talk like on FB.
Show us your reviews and videos.
By the way this is my Torrent 110 with Runcam Micro Eagle camera.
And Runcam 200 X VTX with a real RHCP antenna.
Oh
Flying with Gemfan 2540-3 Props. 2.5 inch props like the Scimitar 110.
Yes flying on 2 S Pulse 800 mAh at 45 C because speed kills.
The only thing missing is the OSD.
But my DX7 TX tells me when it is time to land,,,,lol.

I had a successful maiden flight in some seriously strong wind for what I would normally fly anything in. The landing wasn't perfect, but I was able to test out the beacon as a result lol

Thank you
I keep wondering the same thing
Blade Torrent and now the Scimitar 110 both fly great for what they are
At least in my humble opinion and to the capabilities of my flying skills as they are

Vortex 150 and Vortex 230 are on a whole different level
And that is what I go to for full speed freestyle fun

I am happy with the Scimitar just the way it is

I agree foamyflyerr, I got my 110 for FPV fun right out of the box to help me take things to the next level. I will never be a great FPV Quad pilot, but I will always have fun flying it
