Default HobbyKing H-King Flycat 70mm 12-Blade EDF Jet

These are my H-King Flycat 70mm 12-Blade EDF Jet videos and review notes.

Unboxing:

Maiden Flight:

Second Flight:

Pros:
- The HobbyKing Flycat feels rock solid while handling it
- It has a Beautifully vibrant color scheme
- Lots of power from the 70mm EDF Fan unit
- Rock solid ball link connectors
- Quick and easy assembly and radio setup
- Optional Retracts via foam cutouts
- It takes the same batteries I use in my E-flite Viper & Avios Spitfire

Cons:
- No RC Plane lights
- Any plane that requires glue gets a con from me, but it really was very easy & intuitive.

It does not, it is just a fun yank and bank.

I'm getting this but not at the moment. HK handed out 10% codes if you subscribed, only a small thing they did not work for anything useful from their site. Need to settle my mind and forget this before ordering ;-) Hopefully I can buy spare parts and pop in three HS65's...

We have Product exclusions: Around 700 SKUs including All items on our "New Items " page , Flash Deal page , Bargain Bin page as well as select bulky or volumetric weighted items like e-bikes, scooters, 3D printers, Printer filament, Carry cases and large bags, LiPo batteries 4S and larger, large EDF's and gas motors, Jets, Planes, Helicopters large drones, boats and cars are excluded from the Discount Code offer".

aaaaaah....


Well, I think this one would perform really well with turbine power. Would be very similar to the FMS Scorpion or Avios SeaVixen who both launched super easy. Like 8min flights on 400cc of fuel.
