Default E-flite Viper 70mm EDF Jet

I am surprised there isn't an active thread already for the E-flite Viper 70mm EDF Jet, but I will start one.

Unboxing:


Maiden Flight:

E-flite Viper Jet Review Notes:

Pros:
- A nicely priced BNF 6S EDF Jet
- Bolts together and doesn't require glue
- Looks better in person, though I still wish they would have picked a different scheme for this jet
- Easy to see in the air
- Plenty of speed for a Beginner EDF Jet
- Lands slow and gentle with full flaps

Cons:
- The canopy arrived scuffed
- They don't provide any tools like Freewing EDF Jets to help snake through wires or for installing hex bolts.
- Connecting all of the wires through the fuse was not easy, so I am glad I had the CrewZinn stand to help.

Was surprised at the quality control problems with it.

Sorry for the delay in my response! I will post a video I uploaded last night showing how nicely this one lands on grass. I had two flights with zero issues.

I just realized I didn't take-off from grass, but I did land on it. I have heard of people taking off from grass just fine
