If you want to see a fast Glider this is a BEAST! Sound is IMMENSE as it does its 308mph pass! And if you fancy a jet turbine powered hand launch Glider take a look at !
Thanks for the info. Really appreciate it
3.2kg and 100mph. That is quite a weapon. And here are the wrong hands.....(smaller version too!)
Pretty sure you need to supply your own RX & TX for this, hence the 'Radio: 6 channels and up' item in specs. I used to fly in the days when IC was fine, and most fields would be unsuitable for this to take off. Based on that experience I also agree with the comment above about a black bin bag, because this is not going to be anything like a video game, and it will not be forgiving in any way at all. If you haven't flown before then this would be a good place to start: https://hobbyking.com/en_us/durafly-tundra-v2-pnf-orange-grey-1300mm-51-sports-model-w-flaps.html? You'll need a radio too: I've no specific recommendations since the tech has likely changed quite a bit from when I did this, although 'good' makes were JR and Futaba, while Acoms were a bit cheap and cheerful.
It looks like you have to buy the battery separately but does it come with everything else you need to just take it out and maim someone fly it? I've looked on the website and it seems that it does but want to make sure. I might actually bite and go for it.

Tronxy X-1 3D printer (US Plug) £116.42 Delivered @ HobbyKing£116.42
Tronxy X-1 3D printer - look like a decent starter printer. It is on back order and is a us plug - so uou will need either a US to UK power adapter or a UK power cable.
For anyone looking to take this on and use the R9 module: Ive set this up with a quad and its a bit of a faff for a first time user especially if you have never used a Taranis before. Also Im using an F4 Mamba stack which caused additional headaches as i wanted to use F-port protocol using an R9mm receiver. so for anyone in my position here are some really helpful links. setting up radio: Setting up R9mm module with F-port: https://oscarliang.com/setup-frsky-fport/ Also i used this for the Mamba configuration with the f-port inverted going to TX3 https://intofpv.com/t-frsky-q-x7s-r9m-r9mm-sbus-problems All working now with telemetry thanks to all the above for their contributions as well.
If you have ever tried wings the maiden is usually somthing close
Damm...Got those mixes and inputs round the wrong way !!
Depending how you configure the inputs/mixes and set the ratios, will all cater into a smooth or erratic flight.
Does this play smooth?

No it's a medical instrument to help save live (confused) (confused) (y)
So basically it is an expensive toy?
Lol how weird. Massive company
Apparently they couldn’t/wouldn’t verify them as a legitimate seller. I pointed out they had a UK warehouse/pickup point but it didn’t help. Personally I’ve never had an issue with them over many years.

I ordered from Hobbyking ad per post further up but also just ordered this lot from Banggood... Servos 2x 9g https://banggood.app.link/HSCgaHtMOU Motor https://banggood.app.link/HRqwoEyMOU Props https://banggood.app.link/7jKdTCBMOU
Come with control horns n wire to connect with servo. Just need all the electronic ie 2x 9g servos, motor, ESC, battery n your own transmitted/receiver etc. I'm keeping an eye out for them. So will post if anything good come up.
Does it come with the control horns and wire or is it just the raw airframe?
My collection also arrived today in a huge box like that. Luckily I managed to get everything out of sight before Mrs Lancman got home. (y) Unfortunately no assembly instructions supplied with any of the jets, but it all looks fairly straightforward so I think I should be able to figure it out. Amazing VFM.
Oooh look what's waiting for me when I get home! :D

Hobbyking Quanum Vandal 1/10 Buggy RTR (Almost!) for £73.32£73.32£88.9918% off
I've been watching this product and it has always been around £104 for the ready to run version. Price varies by under £1 due to USD exchange rate. Occasionally some items go on sale but that's clearly shown as a reduction in price.
The price of this and most stuff varies on a day to day basis at HobbyKing,It could be 100 quid on Tuesday, Then find its 50 quid on Wednesday for no real reason other than some algorithms going on somewhere.
You may drink your weak lemon drink now, or save it for later.
Reviews seem to be ok for it but guess driving it full speed in to a wall, as one reviewer did, isn't the brightest thing to do. :/ Other HK stuff has been OK but agree it's not Traxxas etc quality so check all screws tight, gear mesh OK etc before first run.
