Review by: Philip MontagueGreat Sport F5D Model - super strong!
I waited ages and pestered Neil several times as to when this model was going to be available but it was worth the wait. I used to own an F5D Viper - it was a great model in the air but built and designed as a competition model it was fragile on landing - especially at the high speed that it always flew at even on the glide.
I was pleased to see that the Jolt was made entirely of Carbon. I'm not interested in racing, just as a very fast sport model and happily accept that its a little heavier than my Viper.
The wing section is typically thin and the wing servo compartments are quite small so a little thought needs to be given as to installation using the recommended servo's. The fuselage however has a carnivorous battery bay easily able to take largish Lipo's up to 5S. It's also a lot cheaper than other modern F5D models especially if purchased from the US.
It's too late in the year to put together now (I don't build in the summer) but I'm sure this model will be as fast as the Viper and a lot more durable.
