I could imagine what it would look like if I flat spinned it to the ground.

I'm seriously debating whether to get one of these or not. They look awesome. Haven't flown a plane of this type yet so they just might be enough pull to entice me to buy it. Lol. I love the micros they are just too awesome to fly.

I went to the hobby store today and bought one of the micro Strykers, I hope to maiden it tomorrow. I let you know how it goes. I haven't flown this type of flying wing before but I have on the sim sooooo hopefully I don't bring back pieces.

Well the maiden went well for never flying this type of plane before and I would say its about as fast a my Parkzone P-47 stock for stock. It is a easy plane to fly and its very wind tolerant. It does handle handle much better than my P-47 though LOL and if want to turn or pull up it will do it faster than think. Its not squirrelly at all.

Today's maiden flight was in a steady 15mph wind and while gliding/slow flying it does get lightly bounced around but if you pour on the throttle a little it has no problems at all with the wind.

Parkzone did a great job with this little mini Stryker and I have already informed the Wife the full size Stryker will becoming home soon.

Buy a Mini Stryker you wont regret it.

We fly this thing until the ESC complains (low battery). But, people are surprised at how long it stays up flying. I do feel a bit more speed can me more exciting. But, of course that will reduce the flight time.

My son loves the boomerang spin.

I'd love to get one of these.

I have no experience flying any fixed wing aircraft. I do have experience flying heli's though, like the mCPX and B450 3D as these are what I fly on the weekends.

So, for Christmas I've purchased a UM P51 mustang. Probably a bit aggressive for a 'first plane', but I hope the combination of my helicopter experience and some sim time will keep me from damaging things too badly.

Once I get a few months of experience with that, I hope I'd be able to try the Stryker.

Discontinued, apparently.

Parkzone's site says. "Unfortunately, this item is no longer available. If updated or related products are suggested, you can access them through a link that will appear below this text."

Neat trick...

Take it high, go inverted and get it into a power-off inverted spin.
Reverse the ailerons and watch it wind up.

Let go of the sticks to recover.

Its an entertaining little plane... no good reason to discontinue it. I think its one of their best micros.

yeah, I picked one up for $60 at Joe Nall. Couldn't resist. You can't get the brick for that price. They seem to be reworking all of them for AS3X bricks. They just recycled the P-51 for example

Well, they will have to design a new version os AS3X since on my AR635 it clearly states it isn't suitable for delta wings or flaperon setups.

It will be interesting if they do since I have a balsa parkflyer sized wing called the Swing25 from ElectroFlying Models.

SMOP (simple matter of programming) They just need to have the incentive to do it. maybe the Stryker II is the justification

All they need to do is mix AFTER the AX3 system such as adding this (plug changes required for the micro)

Then it can do elevons.
