Flew it today on 3S 2200 lipos..  Yeehaa!!!!  Vertical climbs and  thirty minute flights.
Its fast, maneouverable, flat flat glide and fast.  Oh, its quite fast too. 
 
This thing is complete and under a hundred quid (add Tx and Rx and battery) and a real hoot.  I love it.

I, and my two sons have one each and for the price it knocks the MPX Blizzard into a cocked hat!  A superb model!

How does the Blaze compare to the Blizzard in a 60 mph wind on the slope?

Probably very similar, but who cares, Most slopers I know don't derive much pleasure in flying in such extreme wind speeds. Also, I usually choose the relevant model from my armoury for the day's conditions when I go flying on the slope.

Like it is in its element!  See my review on the left.  The Blaze sounds very good, I'll have to have a look at one.

60 is a light breeze! The more breeze the merrier! Steering gently around in a thermal is BORING after a while!
Real slopers bring out the BIG models when there IS no wind!

Just got my 2nd Blaze - and a can of flourescent spray paint too !wink

Great model me thinks for the cold season, saves messing about with glow fuel !

In fact a fellow flyer puts his glow stuff away for the winter due to this very reason, I guess this is one good advantage with leccy models in bunging in a battery and off you go for as long as you can take on a winters morning, I will have to consider this approach too though I do prefer having a real engine still !

Just putting it together, ignoring the useless manual. Bit dissapointed that one of the winglets is already very weak, I know they don't last long but when you open anything for the first time you expect it to be pristine but alas.

I had plan to make up some sort of plastic wing tip cover but I'll probably end up just snipping them both back like I did before.

Before I spray the wings, I've just stuck on some blue & yellow tape for a maiden tomorrow to aid visibility, and put a bit of glass tape on the front underside for landing protection, just radio setup now after the wonderful wife prepares me tea !

ummm nice tea ! tea

Anyone know how to reverse the throttle, can it be done on the esc side? I've tried via the radio reverse setting, and also by the esc with throttle up while plugged in 2 beeps to indicate break is on, move throttle down and the prop spins ??

opps how a fresh look helps, seems I was reversing the ailerons and not channel 3 !

Succesful Maiden this morning followed by 2 more good flights despite the wind, it did not seem as fast as my first model though it was quite blustery out !

The yellow was virtually invisibile much better to have the darker colours !
