Cons




  • Despite references in the Horizon Hobby web pages, there is no"Reflex" stabilization unit installed.
  • After contacting Horizon Hobby, they informed me that all units now shipped, will contain the Reflex unit. Up until now (Mar 2022) the units were not included.

Modifications




Here is a video from RC Informer on how to install an 8S power system. Includes a new EDF,and ESC.

Please note that the standard set-up is perfect, and it does puzzle me why some people always want more power!
