New! RaptorGS 4 channel 3d micro! *Now with Video*

Hello all,
This is a sneak peak of the new Raptor GS 3d micro plane.
The airframe is designed by ETOC pilot and Tuscon Shootout winner, Ryan Archer and the graphics are courtesy of yours truly! This plane has been in development for over a year now, and we've been dragging our feet a little bit, but everything is finally in place.
Most recently, a lighter and more powerful motor was found that will be the powerplant of this little beast.

Let's get down to the nitty gritty here.

Auw: 28g
Empty weight(no battery) 25g
Wingspan: 16.5"
4 channel, rudder, elevator, ailerons
servos: Falcon 1.6g (1.7g with connector)
BA 2.5g servo for ailerons
Airframe: 2 mm EPP foam, silkscreen printed 6.8g
ESC: XP-7a lightened to 2g
Motor: AP03 3.17g outrunner including mount 45g of thrust
Prop: 4025
Battery: 140mah 1 cell lipo 20c
Depron foam suport structure
carbon bracing for leading edge of the wing, wing support, pushrods
tail support
control horns, servo arms (plywood)
motor mount (plywood)

2s Version:
Comes with 2s lipo and C05 motor
Weighs approximately 6 grams more
More power, but not as floaty or slow, works with spektrum Ar6300 no mods

Because this plane is micro and 3d, it is meant for intermediate and advanced pilots. Those who have worked with
micro components and 3d foamies, and flown a little 3d.
This plane is about the same size as the Parkzone Micro Citabria.

It is meant for casual 3d flying in your garage,
backyard, hover practice in your house, etc. It is small enough
to fly in very tight spaces.

This plane will come as 3 different versions.
Receiver ready, with everything listed at the top, as a kit to be used with your own equipment, or it can be used with the new Parkzone 4 channel equipment.
We chose EPP foam to make it one of your longer lasting planes
in your fleet. After bashing it in the living room a bunch of times without a ding on it, I can see how important EPP is for a plane like this!

You mention "the new Parkzone 4 channel equipment."

Is there more info available on that somewhere?
