The Rage R/C Micro Vintage Stick

From Rage RC:

The Rage R/C Micro Vintage Stick takes a step backward in time to a nostalgic look that evokes memories of yesteryear, but with modern carbon fiber materials and updated radio technologies, like 2.4GHz. This classic-appearing aircraft is not only a great way to build R/C piloting skills, but also an enjoyable model for experienced R/C enthusiasts to fly in compact areas. The Micro Vintage Stick is produced with simple and durable construction techniques, such as the carbon fiber "stick" airframe and foam flying surfaces. The featherweight (24g without battery) construction and high-capacity flight battery combine to deliver adequate power for aerobatics like loops, spins, and barrel rolls, or extended flight times when enjoying more relaxed flight maneuvers.

The Micro Vintage Stick features a factory-applied vintage WWI-style trim scheme with everything required to fly in the box; including a 2.4GHz 4-channel capable transmitter that also doubles as a charger for the 3.7V 150mAh LiPo flight battery, and integral control board with ESC and servos. The only additional items required are four AA batteries for the transmitter and you can enjoy flying a classic aircraft from a bygone era at your local park or gymnasium within minutes of opening the box!

This one looks nice. If it stays at the $69.99 price point, I think Rage will have a winner. They should do some different colors, make it better for people to fly them at the same time.

Is this a Mode 2 Tx configuration?

Mode 2 it is. Notice how the left stick is sprung closed. Non-Proportional Throttle.

I just pulled the trigger on this. I will swap the brick to a Spektrum from the Vapor HP that I got on black Friday sale. The Vapor HP has not impressed me at all, and at the price I paid, it was totally worth it just to get the brick receiver. I did the DSM receiver and 2S 180BL swap on the Rage Staggerwing, and that plane is great.
