I test flew my Great Planes Revolver a few weeks ago.
Great Planes produce a very high quality kit and offer the electric option straight from the box. The large hatch on the top of the fuselage makes battery change a snap. I used the Great Planes (mid sized) motor mount which meant all the holes lined up with no modifications and the Tower Pro motor also bolted in perfectly.
This is a brilliant little aeroplane to fly and one that looks like it is going a hundred miles an hour just sitting on the ground!! Not at all difficult to fly, but it is very neutral in flight and will go exactly where you point it. Four point rolls, inverted flight and knife edge all fall easily into the Revolvers routine.
There is a little hint of wing tip stall if you entice it hard enough with slow flight, lots of elevator and aileron, but otherwise is really does push through the air nicely. It will float right on past you when landing if you don’t slow it down in the circuit.
I’m running a Tower Pro 3510-6T with an APC 12x10E prop, a Turnigy 60A ESC and a Zippy 5S 4900. Guidance is the JR DSX9 2.4 radio with a Spektrum AR6200 and JR DS821 servos. This motor combination will easily pull the Revolver into a vertical climb after take off with a few rolls thrown in for good measure along the way up.
Love the plane, especially the oversized dude in the cockpit!!

I was so close to pulling the trigger on the Revolver. I chose the Sig Somethin' Extra instead. I never read anything bad about the Revolver. All the folks that posted things said they really liked it. Their only complaint, if you could call it that, was that it was too floaty and hard to land.
Here is a photo of my Pulse. Looks a tad different than yous I'm afraid.
