9 Jun 13 - I finally got around to test flying the Squall HP today; a few clicks of right trim needed but other than that it was great. The Squally HP is capable of high speeds, lightning fast rolls, huge loops and sustained vertical climbs (not for too long though or it would be out of sight). I need to get another couple of good 4S 2650mAh or 3000mAh packs as the Flightmax packs don't last very long. The first landing was a little abrupt as I let the nose drop and the intake scoop caught on the grass, giving an almost zero length landing; the second landing was much better as I kept the nose up. I will fly the Squall HP with the Emeter2 RDU in the near future to get in-flight wattages.
10 Jun 12 - I thought this was an attractive delta and can be fitted with an optional vectored thrust (VT) nozzle; I haven't bought the VT nozzle as yet but may in the future. The build is extremely straight forwards and the manual has detailed information and photographs throughout. It is also available in a 'normal' version for 3S LiPo using a different motor (3800Kv), 40A ESC and 5-blade impeller.
