seriously considering pulling the trigger on this, but the lack of threads anywhere leave me wondering a bit?
seems like a perfect size, wingloading and features. looking to put in a dle 30 or 35 or similar.
plane looks hot and the available vids seem good.


Edit
I did find some good sources to read through.

I've owned many many aircraft over the last 20plus years, from a long list of reputable known brands, but never an Aeroworks. Looking forward to it!!
I ordered one and should have it mid month [8D]
havent exited about a new plane for quite some time, but am now

On the AW site it shows ETA for May, but if you click add to cart it goes in without mentioning backorder. I would phone to check.
I got mine from a Canadian supplier, its on route, they also had to wait for new arrivals. I think Valley view RC have some

I'll keep looking around for one. I am wanting to get one of these flying before long. Looks like it will be a blast to fly, plus a little easier to carry than my 100cc Aeroworks Edge.

Its here now
My wife helped me dry fit everything real quick and agrees that its a nice clean, visible and well made plane. ( she watches everything here and knows a bit )


Its a just a bit smaller than a H9 260, but with much more expected performance.

My initial thoughts are, its well above average construction and finish, I like it already after 10 minutes of looking it over.

I will take the rest of the build and flight to a new thread and leave this open for the original AW Freestyle post.

Thank you

No sorry, bought a house, and RC things are on hold. The plane is nearly done though, will post a quick summary when close to finish. No surprises or problems. Feel free to pm me with any questions.

Sadly, I am reporting a total loss of airframe and engine and exhaust, and some/most electronics...
Still sifting through tattered remains. It was an electronic failure, unknown source at this point.

IN NO WAY, IS THIS POST A NEGATIVE OUTLOOK ON AEROWORKS, THE AIRFRAME AND ASSEMBLY WAS 100%, NO STRUCTURAL OR FIT ISSUES AT ALL. CRASH WAS RADIO OR BATTERY CAUSED.

A canister tunnel would be a nice option, and likely a needed option for many clubs, please add the choice of tunnel or not, or provide wood and instructions for one.

I would like to purchase another, once financially recovered, its a perfect size for a small sedan, transportation was a PLUS ++++ and its still a decent size plane.

Loosing this tonite was, and is a major set back for my 2013 season, probably around 1200$ PLUS in busted stuff.

AGAIN, ITS NOT AEROWORKS FAULT AT ALL, THIS WAS A WELL THOUGHT OUT MACHINE, LOOSING IT AFTER MY 3RD TRIM LAP WAS VERY SAD..[]
NO EXPLANATION, BUT NOT MECHANICAL OR AIRFRAME RELATED.

I did run a DLE 35RE with cansister. Canister was inside fuse with aluminum heat shields for flight pack and receiver, but not fully enclosed from fuse interior. which was to be added later by me with 1/16 bass or similar to keep it isolated from onboard equipment.

Its easy to blame this set up, and could easily be the problem, but ground checks during break in /test period seemed to prove no excessive heat on above equipment, this was over a 30 minute ground test, a basic flight would have much better cooling.

Obviously this is a major disaster at this time, without any real answers. Radio is Aurora9 with flightpack and switches and servos from a similar size flown plane, flown recently and over quite some time, no issues, and a direct swap. no changes to set up or hook ups. This radio has flown multiple gassers in 50cc range, never a glitch.

Results were, 30 foot take off, easy lift, no ail trim, a bit of down and 2 clicks rudder, 2-3 laps, then it revved to max and full down vertical??
sort of leveled, motor slowed to half, then more vertical downand full rpm, then slowed a bit and augered in. semed I had some control, but did not, happened in all of 4 seconds...[:@]

Really sorry to hear about your loss. Such a great flying aircraft will surely be missed.
