thanks!

Like Starcad mentioned. My foxeer cam came with that adaptor, I just ran zip ties thru under canopy. I ran popsicle stick under to strengthen. You can also hot glue it

Not sure why this plane is drawing me to it, looks like a fun flyer.

it's a blast! Don't think twice about it, get it. Easily get 15 minutes on a 2200 pack. Floats in like a dream on landing. I might get bigger tires on mine, just because......why not?

It slows down very nice, will do nice flat circles with some hard rudder and a little more power fed it. I would definitely fly it without the bank/pitch limitation of SAFE in that area though.

Really thought a fast plane would be my next, but for where I fly a nice relaxing flyer might be a better option. How’s the power against a decent wind?

In my review video you can see (hear) that the wind was really blowing and the AeroScout did not care - https://youtu.be/V5Q_LPtuH1Y?t=625

Handles the wind with no problem....was flying this summer on the side of the Hudson River in NY, constant 15-20 mph gusts. My Multiplex Mentor does something similar, as I think many would do....just point plane into the wind, nose up a little, and just float in position, sometimes going backwards, then diving down and doing it again. I believe the motor is a quad motor, and the two I have flown have a tiny bit of lag between fire walling and the motor responding.

I'm diggin it.....

Thanks Jim, Rogosi, plenty good for me. I’ve never owned or flew a pusher before.

It’s something just how slow it will fly. Roll rate is good also when unrestricted.
I like the way the motor has that screaming sound to it.
Like the little motor that could. Lol

Im a 10 year nearly weekly pilot who has and flown EDF jets, 3D, STOL, float, hotliners, wings, biplanes, FPV, warbirds, quads, and more. I just bought one of these today! Check all the videos, this puppy looks like a bunch of kick back fun and able to do FPV to boot. Cant wait to fly it this weekend.

I know this is the Aero scout thread but it seems more active than the Eagles one just now.
I bought this a few weeks ago as a short range STOL plane for fpv .
I have actually never yet read anything negative about them which is unusual these days which is why I was tempted.
As you all say--just fantastic!
It's the first plane with under carriage that hasn't needed straightening after every landing and I've made quite a few bad one
I was living in a very quiet spot with no immediate neighbours and had space to fly and safely land my bigger FPV planes but now I'm getting a bit hemmed in I thought this would fit the bill for getting up AND down in less room and often in flukey winds due to the hills and now houses.
I have fitted a FC but that's mainly for emergencies when my eyesight let's me down
