Has anyone seen these up close and personal??

They look pretty cool but the steering resolution/electronics need to be up to par to be worth it - better than XMod! It's doubtful.

They come from HK so naturally... they rape you on the shipping... :o

hi mate,

yeah, i've got one. it's non-propo control but surprisingly easy to control. If you're after xmod or mini z handling though you're outta luck, but if you fancy swapping to propo electronics it should be an easy prospect and an awesome platform for it. :-o

I can't find it now but someone --maybe on Tiny Rc???-- had one that they swapped Micro T electronics into and it looked like a good fit. I never did see the video the guy kept promising, but the photos looked good. I'll see if I can find the thread, maybe it wasn't tiny rc...I'll look.

Thanks for the info guys...if I find one where I don't feel I'm getting raped on the shipping, swapping electronics may be a fun winter project - and Micro-T electronics might be the way to go.

Now that I'm at work and free from horrible dial-up, I can look for pics of the chassis and vids :)
