We only have 1 of these DISCONTINUED BY MFR./NO LONGER PRODUCED, aircraft left in stock!
Video of a Thunder Tiger 3D Spirit . a .40 size glow model that I pegged to be an excellent electric conversion. This kit is no longer in production. I have several in stock. I had stocked them as my next big cool .40 conversion kit after another model had been worn out. Never got around to marketing them. Killer aircraft as you can see from this impartial video.
Bear in mind my actual cost to ship this to you is generally $20 to $30+ in the USA. My USPS Priority Insured charge online is only $13 (hIGHLY recommended to protect your investment as this item cannot be replaced). Keep in mind, we hold the right to ship using the best most economical option available.
Finished weight I expect to be around 4 lbs with a quality power system. The box says 4.5 to 5 but I think it's much lighter and why I took and interest in this kit as my next show model.
Dave's Wicked Power Setup: Himax 5018-530; APC E-Prop 14-7; 6S Kypom 3800; and Castle Phoenix Edge 75 (Plug and Play soldering get fully connectored), or similar. This is a good price on a high class model more capable and lighter weight than most anything available today. And YES, this will be even better than the system in the video.
This one is a sweet ride!
Performance, 149oz static thrust on 65oz model, 4812 foot per minute climb rate @ 90 degrees. That's almost 1 mile or almost 60mph in the vertical lines. 67mph max speed. This will likely be the best overall setup you've ever owned and the coolest .40 size model you and your flying buddies have ever seen. This is exactly how I'd set it up for myself, no holds barred.
