Review by: MichaelJolt 2
Iíve been researching affordable hotliners and pylon racers for a while. All my research pointed to the Jolt 2.
Unable to locate one in the United States, I came across HyperFlight and found the exact color combination I was looking for. With a bit of hesitation, I hit the purchase button and expected a long wait to receive my bird. Literally within and few days, my package showed up, with zero damage on the shipping box and the plane perfectly packed.
As I unpacked the Jolt 2, I was amazed at the quality and craftsmanship of this plane. The finish is smooth and flawless, the fit spot on and nothing was warped or damaged in any way. The colors are vivid and stand out.
With my busy schedule I have not completed the assembly, but I canít wait to finish it.
Iím not looking to race competitively, but looking for speeds around 160mph and something that turns heads, so to speak.
HyperFlight - great job on an awesome product. Iíll definitely be a return customer!!!
Thanks Neil for your quick communication and professional operation.
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.
