It's a Fullsize Vbar
"Think"

Or at least he's been running that for awhile.

...Once upon a time there were Nitros, flybars and frequency pins...

From the flight characteristics and precision handling I'm pretty sure that is a Tarot ZYX.

Perhaps you should watch the video again...

I believe you missed it, Richardmind1, Nick tossed the Tx in the air, ran out of the camera frame, took a quick coffee and donut break, returned and caught the Tx to resume flying in time to avoid a dirt nap, all between 2:54.99 and 2:55. He did get rather close to the ground, but his donut was cream filled and he took the time to wipe his chin with a napkin so he wouldn't look silly on camera with cream filling on his face.

When you have hummingbird reflexes and timing like Nick, you can accomplish a lot in that amount of time.

Enjoy things that money can buy IF you don't lose the things money can't buy.

There's no other way to call Nick's flying.

Hey Guys, thanks for the nice comments.

To answer your question, that was a CGY750 with the 1.3 update, BLS 272HV servos/256HV tail, and on 8.4v lipo direct.

Gains were 60/60 on Ail/Ele.

Thanks!
Nick
