So after spending way too much time tinkering on the MXS, travelling, working long hours out of town and a million other things I volunteered Ryanm to lend a hand on getting this bird in the air. And I have to say it is a blast to fly!

Just got one of these today, what a REMARKABLE airplane. I think you truly can't appreciate the beauty of this plane unless it's in person. I'll try to get some pics posted soon.

What we love about this ESC is that it’s the first ZTW ESC released that has a programmable BEC voltage, allowing a choice between 5, 5.5, and 6v output. With today's servos getting better and...

Recently, 3DRCForums had a chance to evaluate the new 42" Vyper Bype, and used the Hacker A30-12XL-V2 motor from www.aero-model.com. This 700kv motor is rated for 700 watts of glorious power, and spins a 14x7 or 15x6 prop remarkably well. We used the...

Maybe djmoose will come in here and back me up on this and I know he is a fan of this plane. I...
