Yes it is and it's also sold as a Singer from Gobee and its cheaper from them.

Hey Jim,

That looks like a TianZi, aka Gohbee Stinger. do a search for gohbee and read more. Unlike other TianZi resellers, Gohbee has redesigned quite a few parts to make it better.

A buncha the guys who fly up in Newport have Gohbees, and Sal (NESail.com) and I are converting two to electric. (2200W peak, or about 3HP!!) PM me if you want to stop by NESail and take a look. Sal is planning on carrying parts so you'll have a local source.

Some describe the Gohbee as a raptor clone below the swash and a hirobo clone above, cyclic response is supposed to be very fast, and parts are cheaper than TT. Most aftermarket frame parts designed for the Raptor will drop in.

Sounds like a win-win to me, but I'll let you know when we get them in the air.

thanks Dude LOL

I am going to buy something to go with my Raven/Hyper this spring, and I don't think I can swing anything larger than another 50, 50's are OK, they are fun, powerful and cheaper to crash and besides that I have an extra Hyper setting here, so I'm looking at all the 50's again,,, I have Pretty-much put the Raptor out of the picture, but the Raptor is like a bad accident with a lot of blood and gore~ you can't help but want to look at it and you can't help but want one, but I'm leaning to the Sceadu...

we are going to have to get together and fly some time..

ah window shopping then? yeah, winter does that to a man eh?

my current 'wish list' heli is a 600EP frame with 700mm blades and a big ole Neu 1912 motor, but that's electric... Imagine a 9 pound 90 size heli... with 3+hp. That's gonna have to be a build for another day though, I already have two on the bench.

PM me your contact info and I'll add you to my "call when we go heli flying" list. Let me know if you have a small indoor heli too, we've been going up to the Georgia middle school gym and flying on week nights- Good fun, and a nice break from the sim.
