      Matt You are right. Just both are called "FPV racers".

      Acctually I am not going to build one soon.

      I just respect Raphael Pirker vel Trappy as extraordinary FPV pilot and trust his concepts.

      I enjoy listening to his interviews, watching his videos.

      Trappy was banned from RCGroups. I was banned from Helifreak and Runryder. I win :) That's why there is sentiment.

      I do not care which FPV Racer is "better". My intention was to show alternative racer in the context of Scorpion product.

      One more thought... I prefer building helis from easily accesible parts. But I choose them carefully considering cost and performance.

      If I start building FPV racer I will follow the same principle.

      I am fan of FPV racing. Here is my thread:
      http://www.heligods.com/threads/fpv-racing.2846/
      ...currently only as a spectator.

      FPV racing is highly focusing on electronics. In few years it will probably evolve fast. I am waiting for 2K video link without noticable lag. ;)

      Off topic:
      I find them very cute

      Here 'tis!

      Scorpion let me have the last one from the first batch that went out to pilots etc. I got some extra arms and the 5 degree mounts as well. Did not bother with the piano wire landing gear either.

      None of my other gear turned up today to get her in the air, so I won't get down to business with the build this weekend. :(

      What's the best way to cook Opossums? I've heard they taste somewhere between a platypus, koala and a dolphin

      Directly from Scorpion. Georges said that the next lot will be ready in about two weeks, but I don't know if any Aussie distributors will be getting some out of that batch or not.

      Had a quick play last night after I got home from the pub. hehehe... Then I quickly put the frame together to see how she'll look when I get to do the build.
