I bought an Air Kite three years ago when I was a very new flyer. I might have had a chance if I had dual rates and expo, but since at the time I didn't even know what those things were, I naturally crashed that poor plane constantly. I reattached the motor mount at least a couple dozen times. Finally stripped both servos on one huge crash. They were some weird 4-wire servos and I had not idea where to find replacements, so it just sat there on the wall until I eventually threw it out last year.

I hope you've had better luck with your Air Kite.

How long of flight times do you get on the Air Kites? Looks like you're still flying them stock without modifications?

Hi Darth
Love the callsign btw
Yes both are stock though i do plan to change them to 2.4 and different electronics and motors soon as the stock ones are getting old and tired
Depends on how agressive i am with the throttle
Lazy flying maybe 12 to 15 minutes
Lots of hovering and 3d 6 to 8 minutes
Take care
Hank

My night/combat flyer.

I put an in-line plug so you can unplug the lights for daytime flying.

I'm just using the 2S lipo to power the lights for the pics
