Review by: AnonymousAs always....first class service
This was a short notice Xmas present to myself, and honestly wasn't expecting it in time for the holidays.
But it arrived in short order, well packed and with all the bits included, bar the x08's and receiver, I was assembling over the hols.
Needless to say the quality of the model is outstanding, nice details and though a tad fiddly to assemble a lovely, lovely model. Vladimir's models are nearly always exceptional and a real treat to study, nearly like a piece of art or an instrument.
RTF weight is 271grams, or 9.9 oz, which I'm very happy with considering she's powered with a 2s 550mA.
Great model and as always, first class service from Neil.

Superb quality and fit as usual with Vladimir's models. See post #72 at https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?3153970-Snipe-2-Electric/page5#post46043147
As usual great service and prompt delivery from Hyperflight, thanks Neil.
Review by: Tony PaineSooo excited
Unbeknown to me my wife she needed a Christmas present so ordered one of these lovely craft. It arrived the very next day (thanks Neil) and now I have to wait four weeks before I can open it (if only Hyperflights delivery was poor I wouldn't have to wait knowing it's in the house somewhere). But seriously I love my DLG Fireworks FW5 supplied by HF some years ago and have never had such fun, but age has hit me and I can't do a decent launch so have bought the E-Snipe. When built I will tell you how things went. Happy Christmas all :)
Review by: Chris MyersWoW what a plane
This is an amazing model I cannot speak to the complexity of build as this was built for me by a craftsman ( Thank you Paul ). The quality of the model the finish is second to none. It shows lift like no plane ive had before and is fast and fun. Every flight i learn more and enjoy it more it is well worth the investment. Nothing against the plane but if you come from big solid models this is incredibly strong but isn't tolerant of ham fisted owners like myself you literally should handle it on the ground with white gloves in the air it can cope with anything. Totally recommend the model , hyperflight and the build was amazing ! love it !
Review by: J FisherSnipe 2 EL is amazing
Vladimir's Models have produced an amazingly lightweight model. Getting everything fitted and working was an interesting challenge. Glad I bought the Powerset, Mount and the 4 KST X808H servos as well after talking to Neil at Hyperflight. Arrived quickly in a massive box and the delivery driver thought the box was empty. When will the weather improve for a test flight?
