Maidened my Sapac F22 Raptor today. Put three batteries through it.. It's not a powerhouse or speed demon, but it has enough for what it is. I ran it on a 3000mah 3S battery. Looks AWESOME in the air. Landings are sweet and very scale-like in a high-alpha stance with a nose-up roll-out.

Very cool.. I need to try to get some video of it.

Some people mod these to 4S power and 75+ mph.. Tempting!

Enjoy flying

They are habit forming and the more I fly the more I like flying. Till night before last when the elevator control wire came loose on my Fun Cub. Nice gentle banking turn, when I lost control. Straight into the ground, it didn't do a lot of damage to the plane. I think the ESC is toast went to order one and they are out. Tired another place and my computer lost connection. Had to start over and when I get to the pay part it says my session has timed out every time I hit the final pay for items. Maybe it will work better tomorrow, had enough frustration for one day.

Flew 5 packs in the Crack Yak Mini tonight and 4 in the MQX (before I broke 2 booms doing double flips). That Crack Yak is easily one of the best flying planes I have ever flown...and you can fly it inside too! At 4 ounces ready to fly you can stuff it in and it just won't get damaged.

Great stuff!

Ordered in 3 planes this week....went a little crazy, Nitroplanes is selling off their old FMS stock at some pretty good prices, picked up the kit versions of the B-25 and the P40....and also picked this little guy up...all the stuff is still in the mail....but I have been waiting for this guy for a while.

Get one now, learn to fly it and have fun after your son is in bed

You'll be an outstanding pilot by November
