Paul I think we won't be sorry. You might want to do some serious research on the FPV Raptor though if you haven't already, I saw someone mention it doesn't handle so great in the air, especially when loaded with FPV gear. It might of course just be dumb thumbs as well...
The Penguin have received excellent reviews and will probably be the next big thing in FPV planes once it hits the masses.

DanZ, I'll order one for you with pleasure. Just send me enough money for the Penguin + shipping, and of course my handling fee of, let's say, R500 :mrgreen:

Hi Johan
I have done a bit of research what I like is the PVC fuselage and the price R1450.00 (November from RC warehouse local)
The 2m TW 7424 Skyrider wing sorts payload out , and is another 2m pusher by itself.
When I buy I look past the stock power setup as it is all about the platform /frame for me.
thanks..

Ah, maybe the stock power setup wasn't sufficient for the weight he was carrying.

Don't get me wrong I don't think it will compare with a Penguin out the box
but all FPV Planes needs mods (made stronger).
so with mods might be better than stock Penguin get where I'm going ?
:hmmm:
