Yep, Not available in the states however. It would make a great home for a 22/20 or Hacker B40 though.

There was one in the auction forum at the beginning of April. They look just like their big brother, but considerably smaller and lighter.

wow! That looks pretty kool. Only 3.25 lb.

Mike, i have a question. My dad tried to convert a Model tech Extra 300 (25 size). He used a AXI 2820/10 with HS 85 mgs, and 10 cell Hecells. Once we got it to fly, it went very fast! But every time we wanted to turn it would just stall. Do u think the wing loading was too high?

Thx,
Andrew T.

What do you mean by "just stall?" Dropping out of the sky indicates a severely nose-heavy condition. Did you check the balance before flying? A quick left-handed roll (snap roll) means the elevator has too much throw, or the plane is too tail heavy.

If you're trying to run an AXi 2820/10 off those little purple 1100mAh HECells, you've found your problem: No power! The AXi could be drawing as much as 40 Amps, while the HECells knuckle under at 12 Amps.

12 amps??? R U sure?

I used 10 HECELLS 1800 mah on my jeti-phasor which pulls about 35 amps and have had the batteries for about a year. The power is equivalent to my Great planes packs....

Thanks,
Andrew T.

Andrew,
The 1800's have a real hard time delivering past 26 amps although I have used them in bursts up to 30 for 5-6 seconds. I ran the AXI 2820/10 with an 12x6 prop at 36 amps comfortably in my MiniE3D from www.extremeflightrc.com and it was a good performer. What size prop are you using? I do agree with Matt that if it is too nose heavy, it will be faster and harder to fly in a turn, but it would have to be seriously nose heavy for that (you would have had a time getting it off the ground). I would check the wing for twist first. If it fly's straight level, it shouldnt drop out in a turn. Are you coordinating rudder in the turn? Just some questions off the top of my head.

-mike

12 Amps for the 1100mAh cells. The little purple ones that are popularly called simply "HECells."

If you're using the 1800mAh cells, you need to specify that. They're good to 25 Amps or so on a continuous basis, and probably do okay at 35 Amps for short bursts. They're a pretty good match for the AXi 2820/10.
