I insist.. go meteor and you won't regret it 93mph on a 2000watt system is just not good. buy a meteor and if you son't like it with that system I will buy it for the price of all new when you come to Cyprus

ofcourse your salaries are much better than ours.
Haven't flown it yet.. I'm waiting for it to arrive.. but Ive seen it flying with the hoffman storm and I know mine is much more efficient ..
I expect it to be as strong as the storm setup on 4s and on 5s to reaaally scoop..

Ive tried this on my all beaten up LX F-22 which has really poor ducting.. got more than 105mph on that really draggy and 1.7kg planeI expect the meteor to be a complete different story

well.. screwd it..
on a landing that seemed so easy.. a gust slapped the plane just 1 meter above the ground.. it was gusty but I never expected that.. a landing that seemed just fine ended with a cracked nosewheel plywood mount and one main gear unglued from the foam.
fortunately the damage is minimal and it's an easy fix

now.. I just unboxed my F9F-8 cougar kit from HK.. Interestingly there are a few differences.. or you may call surprises

1st the canopy is complete in 4 parst.. the foam, the seat which is plastic and the clear canopy like the F9F-2
then there was the ailerons that are full wing .. so no flaps..
in the manual plastic bag like my panther there was the manual and some plastic servo covers .. and then the EDF cover with the holes.. normal..
then I unpack my main wing and there was a cheater hole cover with NO holes at all.
I wonder if that's better or should I put the one with the holes . the ducting doesn't seem that good

My Cougar didn't even have the option of the cheaters. The solid EDF cover was already installed in my kit.
The main gripe I have with all the Landers is that the ducting is terrible, and they have a habit of making it ten times worse by placing the retract wells right into the ducts.

While well within spec, my ESC was getting rather warm, so I have installed some mechanical cooling





A little Heath Robinson, but it works (on the ground anyhow!)
