The Parkzone Stryker. F-27Q (BNF)

Unfortunately the Parkzone Stryker is no longer available

The Parkzone Stryker offers high speed and extreme RC aerobatics. Simpler than RC electric jets but just as fast.  Outlandish maneuvers and blistering speed are what this RC airplane offers!

The Parkzone Stryker F-27Q.

The Stryker F-27Q is very fast (80+MPH) and capable of some extreme RC aerobatics. This is definitely NOT a beginner RC plane! Fast reflexes are definitely required here.

Designed by aerobatic world champion Quique Somenzini, the Stryker delivers a thrilling combination of blistering speed and precision RC aerobatics that make this unique in it's class

This flying wing is manufactured from Parkzone's Z-foam. but does have fiberglass re-enforcement that allows extreme changes of direction at very high speeds. i do not think that true 3D aerobatics are possible with the Stryker, but if you look at the video below you can see some pretty remarkable RC airplane aerobatics!

The BNF version comes with everything you need except an RC transmitter. Powered by a 480 size outrunner brushless motor, the propeller driven Stryker uses a 3s 2200 mAh 25C lithium polymer battery.

The RC Esc is an E-Flite 40 amp, brushless unit and the RC servos (4) are the DSV 130M digital, metal geared models. A 2-3 cell, variable rate, lipo battery charger is included. The installed receiver is the Spektrum AR600 6-channel type

Another feature I noticed is that the hinges used are of a CA type. This makes a lot of sense due to the flight loads involved.

I also noticed that the fin attachment is a bit confusing. I would definitely recommend using epoxy to glue them in and make sure they are square to the wing surface. Please also take a look at the nose block that is retained by magnets. At least add some good tape to retain it!

This video gives you a good idea as to what you can expect fro the Parkzone Stryker!

This was a very popular model, but I guess sales must have dropped quickly! Horizon Hobby are notorious for dropping models quickly. The price of molds, in China must be VERY low so the return on investment (ROI) is quick.

The up side of this sales policy is that new models are always available and spare parts are usually available for obsolete airplanes.
