Hi all

Has anyone built and flown one of these from Electricwingman. I have ordered the model and power train and intend to use HS55 servos with 430mah 2 pack cells and lite Lemon receiver. Comments please

Wotto Stuart,
I have one of these which I fly is fitted out with the electricwingman set up. I do however use a 2s 300 battery. It is a really good model, it is nice and floaty, we fly in a 2 court hall so things can get a bit hairy, the only modification I have made is to put v struts on the tailplane to stiffen it, this made a lot of difference.much easier to assemble than a clik r2, and a lot more resilient when whacked in air to air collisions. Have fun, you won't regret it.

Thanks for this the postman is due on Wednesday, I have opted for 430mah batteries, I hope these don't prove to be too heavy. Cheers Stuart

Hi Stuart,

I have a Crack Laser 'Lite' which I fly on 2S 450 packs, mainly outdoors when the wind drops in the morning or evening, but I did try it indoors in a big hall once and it performed well, even if I didn't. It's a great performer, as is my slightly heavier Crack Yak, and I can do stuff with these that I simply can't do, or wouldn't dream of trying, with bigger models. Terrific designs the pair of them. Can't go wrong, but I think you'd need a decent size hall for indoor flying as even the 'lite' models are still a fair size and not the lightest things available.
