Re: E-flite's 90mm Viper

Dont know about that...I get 4:30 - 5 minutes on my Avanti 80mm and Freewing T33 using a 5000 mah 6S. Granted, I dont have the throttle pegged to the stop the entire flight and use some good energy management and left stick "repositioning " lol.....

I think the Eflight Viper 90 will be an overall impressive model. It has all the right lines, excellent flight characteristics and has the reverse thrust feature which will save a lot of those pilots that struggle to land their bird on short fields. When you factor in the all metal retracts, articulating gear, metal geared servos, operational doors, receiver, speed control , motor and fan, lights its reasonable. Try sourcing all those components and then build one out of wood and covering....it no longer makes sense....unfortunately.

Anyway...I have one ordered and will let you know my thoughts later in August.
