Does anyone know roughly when the Mini Talons were in-stock in the Banggood EU warehouse? Trying to get hold of one but seen a lot of dubious reviews about the packaging when ordered from China  :)

If I crank the Skywalker to 100% I can feel the whole plane trying to push is nose into the ground.
I have the same issue as SnoozyDog, cranking my Skywalker up to 100% causes it to dive on launch, usually the fc or my hand gets back to the stick in time but it's always a tense moment, not forgetting the 12x6 mincer on the back. As a result,  I made a dolly for it a few weeks back, much safer and easier all round. It also means I can play with fully automated missions from take off to landing.

Which is why no-one is suggesting using 100% throttle for launching a skywalker, or a bixler or AXN or EasyStar or Dynam Hawk Sky, or any other similarly configured airframe with a mid and high mounted pusher prop.

This is a Mini Talon thread, and considering the prop is right at the back and all the thrust is directed horizontally through the intended CG of the aircraft, 100% throttle should not result in any adverse conditions on a correctly set up plane :)

    True, with the exception of those using 12 Inch diameter, big pitch props and low kv motors for maximum efficiency during cruise.
  Give these WOT at launch and you will suffer hideous torque roll...

 Its why I went the 8 Inch Prop route, easier to hand launch....

I think the main effect a smaller prop will reduce is p-factor.  I do wonder if many failed launches are due more to this than any torque issues as such.  I once had a situation where unbeknownst to me the motor was very slightly loose on my flyingwings Falcon, only few degrees off but it made it an absolute pig to launch. Then when I realised and tightened it up it was fine again and pretty much just flies right out of my hand

Which is why I think p-factor is probably another excellent reason to not throw your plane upwards, with that high angle of attack the thrustline is effectively altered just the same as if you had a loose motor and then bad things can happen.

Anyone who's put a 12" prop on a mini talon deserves to get their fingers chopped off.

70 minute flight time from my 8" propped mini talon... How much more efficiency do you need

As mentioned above, do we know what happened to the MT in banggoods EU warehouse? Mate of mine was about to buy one and it's not there any more. Which suggests they might have stopped stocking it? Usually they just state under restock if its simply out of stock.

One of the BG staff posted this in the discussion section on the 15th: "Hi SilverSurfer,we are transporting this item to the EU warehouse,it will need few months."

Doesn't look too hopeful  :(

Perhaps a Chinglish misinterpretation? Months meaning weeks?

My guess is months actually mean months. Small items from China to EU on airmail can take months... I bet these are on a slow boat to save costs.  :(
