Default Pink foam combat nutball

This is my 25 inch nutball that I used in combat at the unidome this year and won a total of $62.50. It is made out of 1/2 inch pink foam and has a super tigre 400 ourtunner and a phoenix 25 amp esc and a 2200 mah 3 cell blue lipo. Servos are 9 gram tower pro. Receiver is an old hitec. I use a 3 channel transmitter. The total weght of it is 16 ounces.

Id love to have you build another. I bet if you used less expensive Power up parts from Heads up RC you would come in WAY under $100.

I really dig the nutball, and Its been a while since Ive seen one.

Thanks, but I'am a little short on money right now but I am going to get around $55 for selling a motor and esc but I will use that to help pay for my new motor for my 55 inch pink foam yak 55.

You gotta love nutballs!

I built one for the JR indoor and got some floats for it. It makes a great float plane!

Here is a video I took when we got home. My 5 year old daughter is shooting the video for me.

Looks great as long as you have zero wind.

It is fun, now I have an upgrade motor on it and it hovers at half throttle and flies for 20-25 minutes.
