How cool is that! It's an EDF powered FLYING SHARK! Before you ask...how does it fly? Beautifully. Like a sport model. Fast and aerobatic. The fuselage seems large, but it is, of course hydrodynamically designed for low drag and is actually quite clean. It will loop and roll, no sweat. It will snap(get it?) if you throw the sticks in the corners, but the stall is mild, it won't bite you(get it?)...it hand-launches very easily, you just stick your finger up the shark's, uh, "exhaust port" and give it a shove. It also comes taildragger landing gear. The finspan is 33", the overall length from snout to tailfin is 40", weight is 25 ounces.
We have been flying the heck out of it, and it is not only FUN to fly, but it gets a ton of attention from both modellers and "civilians", everybody flat-out loves it. Flight times are long, too, six minutes is no problem.
It comes plug and play: Plane(actually, fish), all electronics installed(servos, esc, seperate BEC, brushless motor, heatsink, 64mm fan unit, y-connectors), pushrods, hinges, horns (all installed too!), even glue. Even a good quality screwdriver for putting the two screws that hold the landing gear on! Just add a 2200 3s and a RX and go fly.
And NO, nobody else has it! And YES, it is in stock and shipping now. And we fly what we sell, this plane has been under test quite some time, and we got it to the point where we love it!
