You will love it when you finally get yours!
I am lucky enough to have some "competition" versions and I was involved in the development of this airplane. It is hands down the best flying electric but due to production delays very few people have been able to fly one.
It had great precision abilities and extreme aerobatics second to none.

I've had mine on order for 4 months! Last I checked they had pushed the release date to "late August". I'm sure they are doing all they can - but it's frustrating.

It looks like a nice flyin' airplane...I watched the video Tower has.
Should be worth the wait then maybe?

While you are viewing the thread you want to show. Highlight it's address in your web browser. Right click on it and hit copy. That puts it in the clipboard. Then in your reply (in the thread you want to put it in) just right click and paste it in there. It will stay in your clipboard until you copy something else in there.

I got the Turmoil too, it is a great plane, but it is my first 3D electric, i can touch the tail in my pool and hover it right next to me and catch it!!! the side force generators are nice for knife edge.

I like the looks of the Turmoil too...
When I got a H9 Showtime, I modified my Tribute w/ side force generators...
It will knife edge loop with ease now, and flat, rudder turns are like pivoting on a wingtip!

I think adding the SFG's made the rudder roll coupling even worse though

How is the Turmoil for roll couple w/ rudder?
