Hobbyking Tempest
« on: July 20, 2020, 19:33:20 PM »
Alright, just giving a small report on that one :)

I have the P51 Mustang from the same brand for a couple of years now, and I love it! So I hoped the new Tempest was going to be more or less of the same... And it is!
If you are looking for a small scale foamy, go for it!

Note that unlike the Mustang at the time, that one comes with a Gyro. (they re-do the Mustang now with the same Gyro...).
I have to say, my first model with a Gyro. Turned it off after the first 5 minutes. Don't get me wrong, makes the model to fly like a trainer, but... That's a fighter! Fly as easy with or without, but I prefer to have the full authority, but it does as advertised :)

Second thing, battery life... Smaller than on the Mustang (same 3 cells 850Mah) but plenty of power with almost unlimited vertical flying if you like it.

Anyway, great little model to have in your boot to fly when the wind is dead or to get a break from flying complicate machines like gliders  ;D ;D
Education is important, but flying RC planes and gliders is importanter!
