Default New HobbyZone Firebird Stratos for Clearview, FMS and RC Desk Pilot

Hello sim flyers,

Just completed the sim models for the HZ Firebird Stratos for:

______ClearView______________FMS_____________RC Desk Pilot_____

This is one awesome RTF airplane, it has terrific looks and comes
with some awesome technology for easing a newbie flyer into a
successful flying hobby. They call it Electronic Virtual
Instructor technology and experienced pilots can think of it
as a roll gyro with a mixing radio that makes it easier
to fly the model and keep it straight and level and well
behaved in the turns.

I bought mine at Hodges Hobby during SEFF 2012 right as it came
off the shipping truck.
