Here's the damage from my failed second flight attempt. On the wing, you can see where it broke off near the tip tank, which has already been glued back together. It should be noted that both of the...

Just to clarify, the damage I currently have was not from the landing on maiden. It was sustained during the takeoff roll of the second flight. It's broken up pretty good, but is repairable.

The best I've ever been able to do on the Suppo 2212-6 2200kv motor with an APC 6X4E prop on 3S is 76mph on a Profile Saab Draken, and my profile Concorde. But the Nanoshark is lighter and more...

Hawk,

I think that on a hot 4S system with the LG removed and holes covered, hand launch should be achievable. I think you could get it under 3 lbs easily that way.

I show tracking numbers everywhere Nigel has posted.

Also, for small US warehouse orders, you also have the option of USPS shipping. I don't order bulky stuff, so my orders always go USPS Priority.

I typically only order from the US locations now. If one of those two locations don't have it, I don't need it.

Recently placed an order with the Ease Warehouse. Showed up in 3 days.

Looks like a 10A ESC to me and probably a 1A BEC. I used to use a bunch just like it in my mini pusher jets. Looks like 2mm bullets to the motor.
