A 4-CH RTF Electric with 11.1 Volt 1800mah LiPo? What am I missing?

I don't think your missing anything. That sounds like a good deal to me, even with the $35 shipping charge. It's the same Edge 540 that Parkflyers.com offers. I believe Art-Tech and Parkflyers are the same brand. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

Take Care.

I'm wondering if it's worth buying. I'm still only a couple of months into this and trying to fly a Superstar EP (3CH) right now. Looking at this as a potential second plane. Or is it one of those 3D types that can't take any wind?

I just can't figure out how they sell this with a $70 LiPo battery, $100 4-CH radio, and brushless motor. What's the catch?

Other than some poor guy in China built it for 10 cents a day in rice.....probably nothing.

Might have to order one and see how it works....worst case scenario, I still get a nice lipo and brushless motor even if the plane is junk.

$35 to ship as well. Invest in a nice Radio first and then just build whatever planes you want off of it, thats what im doing now actually.
