Have you seen the BVM anniversary sale on an Ultra Bandit with a special paint scheme?

$8000.00 RTF. There's a thread over on FG and I posted the scheme pics I got from BVM.

Because I am still a bit new... do you have to do anything to get the changes to the ECU to apply? I ask because a friend changed the settings to SLOW while we were fiddling with it and the next day I went in and they were back to NORMAL?

Aero.. bump the idle up 1000 rpm, set the accel to slow, with diesel at altitude..

If you can buy pump Kero, I would recommend that.. it will accelerate more normally..

I have been through this too.. But I can't stand the smell of the diesel these days..

Thanks goose I will bump the idle and set it to Slow from Very Slow as you and Zeeb have commented and try that.

Had two UB's... sold both and kept Shockwave.... In my opinion a "composite" Super Bandit is the best Bandit BV has ever produced...

Well I was looking at the UB, but I HAD a Shockwave.... we didn't get along...

So when I asked a friend who'd flown my Shockwave if the UB would have similar flight characteristics', well Pablo has just about got the 2.2 Havoc ready so I pre-ordered one of those.

AGREE Although I cant imagine a Super Bandit / M200 SB combo.. My M140 is outta sight.. (BV would have kittens at the thought.) ..
