No reinforcements to main fuse, but I always do that anyway - having a heavy fan/motor in the back and huge 6s batt up front with nothing but foam in between is asking for trouble.

For the gear, maybe they just put a bigger screw in the strut? Dunno, I haven't seen ver1. It seems a little less sloppy than reported??? We'll see when I get a little further along with the build.

Are there any reinforcements to the main fuse?

And what changes are made to the landing gear? If it's the same spagetti aluminium as it was before..then your right, it's not enough.

V2


Well, looks like the new V2's are at BH for preorder and available in 4 colors now.

No kits that I can see as of yet. And I just got the V1 kit off someone.

Had a little time on my hands waiting for more hardware to arrive, and I was sick of spackling and sanding; so I thought I'd add a little cockpit detail. Have I gone too far? Am I a sick puppy?

Cheers,

Dan.

So is that a varient of the Lander 90mm fan in the V2 models now? Pete is claiming 130mph speeds on 6S (It comes with a 6S now in RTF form). If it comes with the Lander fan and motor then I'd be inclined to try the RxR one (minus lipo).

I don't know about the fan/motor but someone in China really liked Pete's ball-link nosewheel! The new one is an exact copy! Pete, looks to me like you just made the R&D team

I have to say one thing I do like. I have the small version of the tiger paint that starmax max. That huge waterslide decal over the whole top of the plane really adds durability to the plane. I have noticed it is less likely to get a ding and is more durable. I would bet it will do the same for this large version. It also stifens up the wing area.

It wasn't me. Someone else on here suggested the same thing. I just copied them.

Thanks. It's just an inkjet print of a photo which has the colour vibrance increased. When there's light on it, it looks like it's glowing!

I am definately getting the tigermeet v2. Looks as though they incorporated carbon rods in the wings and added rudders to the setup.
