The F-27C Stryker blasts Plug-N-Play performance out of the park with its high-power, 6-pole 1880Kv brushless motor and E-flite 30A Pro Brushless ESC give it unlimited vertical performance and blistering straight line speeds in excess of 80 mph. To handle the abrupt wing loading changes of aggressive high-speed aerobatics without getting bent out of shape, ParkZone has molded the F-27C from its tough, lightweight Z-Foam material. In the air, you can choose between high rate for dizzying pitch and roll rates, and low rate for smooth control response during paint-peeling high-speed passes—all with the flip of a transmitter switch.
If you’re looking for a spine-tingling, adrenaline pumping Plug-N-Play experience that’s unlike anything else out there, this is it.
TheF-27C Stryker's Plug-N-Play version allows for the convenience of a Ready-To-Fly and the versatility of an Almost-Ready-to-Fly—just plug in your receiver and fly! You can fly the F-27C Stryker using any major brand of receiver and transmitter. Simply attach a propeller and plug in a receiver of four channels or more, and it’s ready for action.
All that's needed to complete:
Radio, battery, charger, and receiver
The Stryker C is not a beginner plane, and using expo is important, but it is a total blast. The speed is as advertised (on radar mine did 82mph), and the quick moves you can do will get everyone's adrenaline going. There are all types of planes, but the Stryker C is in a class of its own.
If you can fly an aileron plane with no orientation trouble and can do identifiable aerobatic moves and bring it home in one piece more often than not, you too can do this screaming little tiger. When I started with the HZ SuperCub (wonderful trainer) in Feb '08, the Stryker C was actually the plane hanging at the LHS that really grabbed me. It was my third plane after the PZ Corsair, and my knees were knocking and hands shaking on the maiden. But with 50% expo on my new DX7 it was no biggie.
Start with low rates and after launch, fly at half throttle. At high speed it does what you tell it immediately, but it is surprisingly stable and easy to fly at slower speed. For landing just keep the wings level and it slides on easy. The learning curve to max performance for most guys is fairly quick.
My buddy, Steve, and I are Stryker addicts, and we fly it every flying day even if it's windy. Wind is no problem, and in strong wind it is easy to hover flat and rolls in place are freaky. Endless fun. As you get into the wild stuff it will do, there is a tendency to stretch your flying envelop, and as Stryker thumpers know, it is remarkably durable and truly easy to fix and parts are cheap (check out the parts list). Often just glue and tape will have it flying fine again. If the nose gets bent, just bend it back or get a cheap new one (actually it will fly okay without the nose piece). Even if it gets too hammered, most of the parts come through fine, and a new airframe is $19.
More fun per dollar than any of the other 12 planes I have. And to PZ, please oh please keep making it.
I have flown the Stryker since the first model with tape on elevons. 480 brushed motor and Ni Mih battery. It has been a strong performer always. Now with the brushless and Li Po it is a super strong performer. It screams across the sky like it's angry at somebody but then floats like a kite when you bring it in. Best looking and flying plane you can buy. This is what it's all about in RC flying.
