Revolto setup

PostPosted: Sun Sep 27, 2020 9:59 pm

Looks like some of us that flew or saw c/f's Revolto in action may have to get one.
Definitely on the Bro approved foamy list.
I'm just going to hope Mike (or anyone else) will post here what his setup was, as it seemed perfect, for all to replicate.

Mines just the "heavy" more powerful version that twisted sells except I had my own esc. Mine weighs the same as c/f's and Im happy with the power, it's pretty quick on an upline from hover. I use 1000ma glaciers

You watched me fly mine at Eldon. It was the green and white foam plane.

Ok, I thought it might be the Twisted Hobbys but it sounded like it was possibly a new balsa design.

Gotta say it’s the BEST foamie I’ve ever flown! Waterfalls and knife edge spins were crazy tight!

Only problem is the total cost. You could easily get close to $500 into a foamie!

Anyone have a total with a VH power system?

It's possible that some of us that don't appreciate foamys, haven't set them up as well as the balsa planes they fly.
