BTW, some of you guys might recognize it, but those that may not, those photos were shot at the (decommissioned) Chanute Air Force Base about 20 miles from our offices in Champaign, IL

And we can't wait to see how tight of formations we can fly after binding them all to one transmitter

(okay, not really )

Did you look at the video I posted ? Yes there's plenty of power ...

Here's a video I took two months ago of the Thunderbirds air show near our local rc flying field, shot in 4K and best viewed on a large tv ...

Nice video Herb!!

And Mother Nature hasn't been very kind to us over the last few months so we're still trying to get some additional footage shot before we post a longer video (hopefully including some takeoffs and landings on grass!!), but in the meantime we do have this "Quick Look" video for you guys to check out

Is this the same airplane as the FMS 70mm f-16 but just with an as3x receiver and a new paint scheme?

Pretty funny the FMS F16 went up $20 to $289 on their website today: http://www.fmsmodel.com/fms-70mm-f-1...ing-falcon-pnp

BUT, you can get either the E-flite or FMS version as a PNP from HH for the same $269:

Great idea taking fms edf and adding safe select receiver. Im sure the yak is next. I would buy the fms now but can't fit a gyro in it. Had the original and could barely fit the receiver. Anyway this is a beauty. Just makes it difficult choice when freewing has the 80mm Avanti and l39 for a few bucks more. They have better gear and lights. I'll still probably get the f16 because I just love eflite and horizon.

Bizarre. It was $229 yesterday from fms direct lol. Also they are still using the 70 amp predator escs. So remember to add a separate bec for peace of mind.

The f16 is notorious for this and with as3x you could prob take your hands off great flying plane. Even the freewing one I had did high alphas amazingly
