This site also has a fine collection of club members airplanes in the picture gallery as well as a number of selected RC links that may be of interest.
I’ve noticed that some club members have been flying the Park-Zone Stryker at our winter Fun-Flys. The Stryker is a delta-wing pusher “jet” style model. It’s advertised as an 80+ MPH speedster and from what I’ve seen that’s a true statement. While my Zagi is fun to fly, it does not blister the sky. As I’m always looking for something new I began to check into a Stryker. Visiting the Horizon Hobbies website I found that I could pick up the Plug-N-Play version for about $160 plus tax and shipping. The price seemed reasonable for a model where you only need to add a battery, receiver and charger, since the brushless motor, speed controller and servos are included. So for about a $100 more, the ready to fly version is literally “ready to fly” out of the box. Almost everything is included, just charge it and fly it.
