Is that the second (larger) version Trevor? I didn't have much success with the one I had (original smaller version). I could fly it fine once it was airborne but there was no way I could launch it myself, as I learned the hard way. :oops:

I'm hoping that the bigger one is better as it would be a lot of fun to fly if it is easier to launch.

..more power Rick,..just more power!

Hope it is the Rifle 2 ...been wanting to see that bad boy...!

39" wing I believe, (an entire meter in Europe)

My motor of choice for that would be a HET 2W-20 Inrunner (3350KV, 4S, 50amp, 700 Watts)

Zoom Zoom..!

I just watched the video and maybe the smaller HET 2W motor on 3S would be better...450 Watts on the same 50 amp draw. This thing is a bullet..!

A trio of them would be a terrific "noon demo" at our.. "larger field".

Boy, that short grass field in the vid looks some nice this time of year...Eh?

Ok...hope they improved the wing strength...I guess that's why it is a V2.

First one was listed at 90mph....of course guys took it to 120mph and the wing folded. It was 31" in length.

So now the one meter model is listed as able to reach 130mph and stay together...that's about 220 Kmph (insane), but you gotta love it..!
