Quote from: alan c on June 10, 2010, 23:27:09 pmthere is only so much ugliness i can stand, its bad enough looking in the mirror!!
Quote from: brand1068 on June 11, 2010, 09:36:55 amPS Your site shows it for 20 - 27 LB turbines so my P80 being only 18LB and not having a lot of experiance in this area I naturally assumed it unsuitable, you might want to change it to reflect your comment about it flying well on a P80 especially if its aimed at beginers like me as i'd looked at it before and dismissed it because of the turbine requirements.Best,Chris
Quote from: p51p47 on June 11, 2010, 09:54:20 amThe 'current' P80 delivers 22lb which is more than enough....................apologies for the confusion, but you didn't say if you have an 'old spec' engine or one of the current generation.The thing with Valkyrie is it'll do whatever you want it to do........it was my 1st turbine model 4 years ago....it taught me a HUGE amount......but I'm still flying the original prototype today and enjoy it equally as much, if not more now than I did when I was learning. The flight performance is vast....it'll be very docile and fly slowly when you want it to......but open the taps and it'll perform equally as well as the majority of sports jets of this size/engine spec. It's not a 'dedicated' trainer so to speak that will teach you the basic and then you'll get bored of it and want to move on (hence why you feel you may not want to spend very much)......the models performance will move with your ability & experience.....just a shame 'your' engine is too small Phil
Quote from: JohnB on July 04, 2010, 21:55:11 pmI saw one of these at Winterton and I find it both ugly and beautiful at the same time, really, really odd. I have to say though having seen it fly it does fly very well indeed.J
