Here's a link: http://www.parkzone.com/Products/Def...rodID=PKZU2280



Take Stryker thrills with you wherever you go with the Ultra Micro Series F-27Q Stryker 180. It packs the punch of an E-flite® 3000Kv 180 brushless outrunner motor that delivers exhilarating speed and climb performance, just like the big F-27Q. It also has functional twin rudders so you can push the limits with extreme aerobatic maneuvers like flat spins, snap rolls, blenders and more. Perhaps best of all, you get this awesome performance without having to sacrifice any of the smooth, predictable flight characteristics that have made every Stryker a sport pilot favorite.

Specifications
    [*]Wingspan:17.0 in (432mm)[*]Overall Length:10.8 in (275mm)[*]Flying Weight:2.15 oz (60 g) without battery[*]Motor Size:180-size 3000Kv brushless outrunner (installed)[*]CG (center of gravity):2.6 in (67mm) forward from the firewall[*]Spinner Size:3.75 x 3[*]Recommended Battery:7.4V 200mAh 2S 25C LiPo (included)[/list]

Thats pretty expensive for a tiny airplane that most likely cant handle wind over 5 MPH.   If its under $100, then cool, but once over that price, not really worth the cost even if it is brushless.  I am quite PO with the Corsair that was $109, and cant fly well outside, whether it is a problem with the plane or what, after the first couple attempts and cracking the wing, I put it back in the box.  The T-28 however at $89 was a good deal, I have flown it a lot, and it looks like it went to war, but still flies good, when its calm.

This bird could scoot. Looks smack between micro and park flyer sized, but with a powerful pusher motor she would hopefully handle winds better than most other micros-for that price I hope so. I look forward to reading your report, AC

i tthink this plane will handle wind well considering its a delta wing and every delta wing ive had has flowen well in the wind.

That's a great general aviation tip, AC-15!Thanks!
Do you other fliers out there notice the same friendly characteristic with delta wings? I don't have one so I defer to you gentlemen and ladies.

my 117 flies great in the wind aother people have built them sine ive had mine at the field ive flowen mine in 15mph constant wind other at the field said they had theres up in 25 mph wind and it was still contorlible. Some slope soaring planes are deltas and they seam to fly better than the wings. thats what iam thinking of doing once they start selling airframes of the um stryker is making a mini slope soarer outa one.

When it's too windy, I'm flying my normal size Stryker, so yes, I expect the UM Stryker to be the best micro in the wind. Sure enough, everything is relative, so if I can fly it in 10mph wind very easily, I'll be happy. If I can get it out when there's a 20mph wind, even if flying it is truly rock and roll, I'll be happy.  You cannot go small, and think you'll be able to fly in 50mph wind, at least for now (who know what the future will give us).

This thing will be fast, this thing will get small very fast, and hopefully this thing should handle more wind than any other actual ultra-micro on the market.

The Striker is a lifting body design, so a functional rudder set up should be interesting. Or it could be a way to sell parts.

I got mine on 8/19/2011 and on 8/21/2011 I put 3 flights on it. This is one fun plane to fly. Handles strong winds just like my F27C which I have and fly every weekend regardless of wind speed. This little plane is worth every penny.
Cant wait for the weekend to fly more.
Happy Flying everyone.

Yes That is radio I use. You will have to reverse the elevon servo wires on the receiver board. This is shown in manual that comes with the plane.

Nobody recorded two good passes right and left, and left and right to do a doppler, but many have recorded something like 45mph in one single straight line. Lately, somebody used a radar and also got 45mph. So it does look like it could be right but again, not official yet.

It does great elevator landings, awesome boomerang spins (very fast spins with a low decent rate). Basically, it's a great little ultra micro that fly like the big brother. (Seriously, if you have the big Q, then you'll love this one). As a bonus, it's a Stryker that you can fly in your typical small city park! Yeah!

No video yet here, so time for one! Watch until the end, as I fly it closer...

45 sounds fast for such a little plane!

Please explain what you mean when you say it handles strong winds well. Do you mean steady state winds or gusts? Headwinds? Tailwinds? Curious about these things.

It's a Delta Wing Plane. They fly extreemly well in high wind conditions. They have no stall problems,and cut through wind like a hot knife through butter! At our flying field there are alot of diffrent planes flying,but when the wind picks up,most get "grounded". Then you will see the strykers,and Fun Jets come out to play! I don't have a UM Stryker (yet) but do fly 2 Fun Jets. I had a orginal Stryker and completley wore it out!. None that I've flown have rudders (but I have allways wanted them to have them. The Fun Jet is a little "cleaner design",and a little faster All I can tell you is,if it's too windy to fly a Fun Jet,you had better go home and put the wife and kids in the cellar! Here are a couple! The Red White,and Blue one (Captian America) has all Stryker guts in it! It flys around 86mph (radar gun). The Bright one is powered by a multiplex motor,esc,and H55 servo's (MG). It runs a 4 S battery and has been clocked at 129MPH![X(] Now I gotta get another UM Stryker with rudders! The Wife's gonna clobber me! LOL! Ron
