Works great... Lighter jet flies better

Thank you. That SBEC must be bulletproof to trust the jet to it. Cool beans

cheers

I maiden the Wizard S yesterday.. Had 5 successful flights on it. It flies so stable and precise. Its not a speed demon as I expected but still VERY fast. It needed a few clicks of up elevator as I think its a bit nose heavy. Over time I will change the battery to a smaller battery to reduce the nose weight. The Ditex servos work so nice and well so quiet no buzzing at all. It was defenetily an attention grabber with the paint scheme. Not too many people paint their jets as the norm is paint in the mold.

Overall very happy with this jet and its definitely a keeper... Thanks again to Danny and the team at "Rocket Factory" for another outstanding project...

David..

What’s the AUW of the wizard with all that equipment? The model should be overpowered with the 100 I guess.
Paint scheme looks outstanding. Just built a similar size rebel hot, should have actually got the Wizard S quality wise.

Chatty.

I saw one of thesep flying, pretty fast (and loud) with no bypass, unless the one I saw actually had a bypass, I did not look inside that one

David’s is 14.24 lbs with empty tank and full UAT. A Merlin 70 and vinyl graphics would save a lot of weight. I cannot say enough about how nicely made this kit is. Everything fits well and this makes it a fun build. Not a beginner build but a fun one that a modeler will enjoy as it progresses.
