I like it better than the GP version. The landing gear is more scale too!

It looks great except for the wing attachment system. I can envision punching a lot of holes in the top of the wing if my screwdriver slips.....

The wing span in only 38 inches hopefuly most folks won't even need to take the plane apart for transport. Not sure that'll I'll own one of these, but if I did. I doubt I'd have to take it apart. That being said, I am really impressed E-Flite is really stepping up and cranking out some quality planes.

That's nothing that a change to button head hex socket type bolts wouldn't solve. E-Flite, are you listening?

The plane looks awesome..I wonder what would be a strong motor for it.? I wonder if the 10 is going to be strong enough?

3 months of searching/trying & guess what..This is on pre-order from my LHS. Perfect size for me. I'm assumming another beautiful bird from E-Flite. I can see it powered with the MotrolFly motor & ESC. Less weight, same power & $15.00 cheaper. OH YEA! Plus I have the 2100 batteries that fit the rest of of my birds. Now if E-Flite would just kick it up so I could get another TC 450, I'd be in hog heaven. (The wife not-with-standing). LOL
I think my planes are transmitting subliminal messages to me for more purchases.. or else they're secretly breeding either way, it's all good
However, they do need a different color selection, as in REALLY NEED!

MotrolFly has a DM-2815 (120gram) rated @ 350W/1100kv. 3d<1200/gram pulling a 10x5~12x6. $61.00 Assurances from them their motors are underated will be a test. I can tell you this, I have a DM2820 from them in a 3.2lb bird (Hyperion Cap 232) that sucked the bird off the ground in under 10' and went vertical. I blew my cg but the motor hauled a** & survived a 10' high forward thrust pancake crash with no motor damage. Whereas my 450 E-Flite motor with an APC 'E' prop hit the asphalt curb and bent the motor shaft. Not a crash, just coasted into the curb after landing.

nice lookin bipe right there.....

i just wish they wouldnt suggest using their cruddy "digital" (if you can even call them that) S75 servos. I understand promoting your brand and stuff but those servos wont hold worth a poop when on such darn big surfaces.

Those Spektrum servos are going to explode as soon as you try any maneuver in that. HS-65s all around. Big gears, good size, good torque.

Saw this yesterday and immediately put one on order at the LHS. I've been looking for a small electric Ultimate for months, and then this shows up! Couldn't be more excited. I feel bad for my PA Katana; it might not get that many flights this year

rudra,

they wont explode, but they just wont be able to hold as they dont have enough torque. i think we get the idea of 65's....been using them for 2 years

Can anyone see a battery hatch? Top or bottom? Please don't tell me you have to pull the wing to swap packs
