Lightbulb Dynam Katana Ep Arf

Hi everyone,

Just curious to know if anyone is currently flying one of these models or knows of anyone who has ?

Interested to know if its just a cheap TOY or the REAL thing

http://www.dynam-rc.com/products/airplane/kanata.htm

Would be great to hear back from anyone about it or, at least, hear your thoughts on what you think the model would be like.

Cheers

Exclamation I hope curiosity dosn't kill this cat....

Well curiosity got the better of me and I purchased one of these ARF's/RTF's !

For anyone who might be interested, I will let you know how it looks when it arrives (I will post a few pics) and how it flys, when I get a chance to get it all together and head out to the field.

cheers

Default Kit Arrives

After a not-so-long wait, my RTF Katana EP has arrived!! All I can say is "WOW" !

This kit looks pretty good, considering it cost around $240 Australian Dollars.

All that is needed to complete the model is 8AA batteries for the transmitter (which looks like a very good copy of a JR S400).

Assembly instructions could give a little bit more info on setting up the model, but I think the kit is aimed at the modeller who has had past experience in building/setting up these types of models.

Rather than enter a lengthy discussion on the model, I think I will just post a few pics so you can all see for yourselves.

Hope it inspires you to track down one of these kits for yourself.

Hopefully I can catch some vid of this little buzz box in action and get it uploaded on this post.

Happy Flying.

I have recently started working with 3D, although I am mostly flying a DW foamie to learn 3D with, I am doing well with it and I wouldn't mind starting to fly the Dynam Katana that I have had in the closet waiting for me to advance to this level. I upgraded the servos and radio on it already as I didn't trust the quality of the stuff in the box, but I noticed something about this plane that worries me some.

The firewall has the motor mounted with a fair amount of thrust angle on it, is that actually desired, or was it poor construction from the factory?

Also, are there any odd balls with this thing that I should be aware of?

definitely not a beginers plane. so I hope your joking about being your first rc plane. if not, you'll most likely just have a pile of firewood about 30 seconds into your first flight.

I would recommend shifting over to the beginers forum

I got one of those on ebay have it mostly put together so about a 100 watt engine for this what is the kv on the motor. I paid 20.50 for mine just the plane. I'm not flying it yet need to practice some more with my other planes.

I agree this is not a beginers plane LT. Smash is right about that ryank, and welcome to wattflyer.

thanks guys for the advice i was infact completly expecting what you guys are saying. it was a moment of madness lol when i ordered. im not sure what ill do now to be honest i might relist it and get a beginner plane. it will take restraint and sense but your confirmations of the fate of the plane will help.

thanks guys
