Default Elite Aerosports Shockwave is here!!!!

I got the bug to own the Elite Aerosport Shockwave after flying Pablo's at BITW. It is the most dynamic sport jet I've flown and I've owned 2 Ultra Bandits. The Shockwave has the precision characteristics of an Extra and flies fast or slow equally well. I'll post my progress on the plane as it goes from build to maiden and beyond. Behotec 220 for power. I'm like a kid at Christmas! I'm soooo looking forward to flying the Shockwave!

I really like how EA have stepped up with this plane. The new planes with the seam removal and new colour combos look really good.

Well, the 220 in there will give you some serious top speed and power.

Thanks, guys! The fit and finish of the Shockwave is very good and since it's manufactured by CARF, it's a tough and well thought out airframe.

@mark - Who needs daylight when the paint scheme is brighter than the sun?

cool, was the canopy already installed form the factory? The scheme is ummm... well not my choice but if you like it cool. Looking forward to your flight report, would like any comments comparing flying characteristics to a UL.

@goose and Jonkoppisch, thanks fellas!

@Disco, The canopy was not installed at the factory. I LOVE the scheme and colors. If you don't, that's fine. You also said you like the Nissan GTR, so that established you have poor taste. ;-)

Dude, what is the point you are trying to make... someone has a new plane, they are happy, sharing it, enjoying it..> Then all you can say is you don't like their scheme.... Didnt your mom teach you the old "if you dont have anything nice to say dont say anything?" does it make you better to say that you dont like it? do you really think it makes dantley feel better?

Try saying something nice once in a while... after a few times, you will realize it actually feels good!!!! Congratulate someone on a plane even if you dont like it. Makes you a better human being..

Sorry for the rant. I spend a lot of time teaching these principles to my kids

No worries, Jack. It's karma from me making a comment about the stars on the wing of Erik R's Firebird! Although I thought the scheme was awesome.

LMAO!


Have you seen some of the paint jobs on Disco's jets?

Looks great Dantley! It will look beautiful in the air too!

Your other package will be there Friday or Saturday FEDEX.

Will be insane with the 220!

Getting my buddy's dialed in. Very impressed and it will fly crazy slow! We have a lot of crow in ours.

Great flyer.

Wes, I think a Rhino will do well in the plane. I've flown it with a K-180 and it had plenty of power.

Don, approx how much crow does your friend have programmed in?

Gary, thanks!

What is wrong with you, that's the most inane response ever! All I said: "The scheme is ummm... well not my choice but if you like it cool." Stop being a drama queen and chill out. and that goes 2x for Scott, speaking of schemes, my schemes are awesome:
