HobbyKing SkySword 70mm EDF Sport Jet: ESSENTIAL RC FLIGHT TEST (Unbox, 1st Flight and Reaction !)

Super excited and extremely nervous about flying this very unique looking EDF jet...but I needn't have been because it flies superbly. Assembly is very quick. Bolt on the wings, slide on the nose, attach the horizontal stabiliser after gluing in the 2 carbon rods and all you are left to do is install your receiver with a ~4S4000 flight pack.

Take off, even from a small flying field is very easy. There is more than enough power to get into the air once the nose wheel gets off the deck. It looks amazing in the air from any angle and will challenge even the expert jet pilot. Landing on full flap is not difficult but you do need to keep the power on until your final turn and then balance the power with elevator for an easy approach on full flap.
