This one too. I saw these about a month ago on my LHS website, but i thought that they were old news. The X wing comes in blue, red, and silver.
Here are some links.

Wait the X wing weighs 22 grams and the drone is 7 grams!!
How much do Aero Aces weigh?

Dang then the drone maybe able to fly in the house.
They both look sweet although the drone looks sort of similar to the kid galaxy indoor flyer.

well, 22 g isn't really that much, i mean, look at all that wing area!!!!! it would be awesome to do a SU-47 conversion, add canards, lengthen the fuse, shorten wings, bam, SU-47, and they make it sound like its slow though

your right... that would make it worth it, we'll have to see what kinda power system this thing has.... it def. would make a good airframe, though.... even if it needs some tweaking

i think im just going to build a forward swept version out of an AA jet....i was thoroughly un-impressed with it even with a dime taped to the nose... im just gonna cut it up for the EPP, and build something cooler and faster with it..... and the SU-47 would be totally cool.... if i get around to it ill start a conversion thread.....

fyi - since these are venom, then they can be found for 1/2 the price under a different name.

honestly i cant stand venom stuff - they re-badge every other companies products with green parts and fancy stickers and then try and sell them for 2X sometimes even 3X the price.

boo on them.

i didn't like the jet either, but it became one of my favorites with slight wash-out, dime is to crude and destroys performance.
