Took the SONIKRC Micro Mustang out this evening. No camera, 51g fully loaded, no rules. I’ve had over a decade out of RC planes so no aerobatics yet, just getting the feel of aeroplanes again.
Fantastic fun! Just ordered an RC Jet EDF and a 3D XK Edge 430 too!
Is that the rascal you bought recently ? I saw one in the other thread.
Looks a great fun bit of kit to be honest - the “Dambusters” theme jumped into my head lol
Think its time to invest in just a bit of fun with no worry about any tech - as you say, “just flying” - good on ya
Yeah thats the one! Got it from Sussex Model Centre but there are loads of other suppliers too. Comes in at about 70 quid all in except tranny batteries. I just ordered another 5 Lipos for it and four USB chargers for maximum fun. The lipo is one about 3-4 quid!
It does have some tech in the shape of a gyro which stops it stalling etc. It has two other settings with the third setting full 3d mode.
Gold mate. Gold. Bit pricey for me though. I need to dip my toe into wings again.
I think you can get a palne for cheapr than £70 but you’d have to build it and use your own radio gear. A thermal soaring glider for example. A Westwings Orion is a great option and flies i the lightest of breeze on the flat or of a slope. https://www.elitemodelsonline.co.uk/Aircraft/By-Manufacturers/West-Wings/22021-/West-Wings-Orion-Glider
Yeah. Bangood does em for cheap. I ordered 12 for about 2.30 each, but had to give em away to my misses nursery as the kids wanted them. Lidl are apparently doing the £8 glider again. Might have a pop this time and mod it.
You can even get an RC paper dart now!
