Default Wattflyer Buyers Club #10 Inquiry? Hyperion Enigma!

Ok guys, its been quite some time since we've made a score for the WBC, but I have something that I hope you will enjoy.

I was able to secure a crate of 5 each, Hyperion Enigma's for a deal. The deal is only valid if we move all 5, buying the whole case. The cost for the case is $550 and shipping. Thats only $110 each!

Enigma Specs:
Hyperion Enigma – ZS2218-14 motor included
New Hyperion Zs2218-14 motor and mount included with model "Enigma" New designed “Vector Thrust” system, super light double airframe structure from top quality wood and fiberglass wheel parts will perform minimum weight and max 3D.

Wingspan: 37.8" / 960 mm

Wing area: 71.3 sq. in. / 21.0 dm2
Fuselage Length: 51.18" / 1300 mm
Flying weight: 20-21 oz. / 560-590 kg
Servos (recommended): 3 x Hyperion HP-DS09-SCD (2 aileron, 1 elevator) 2 x Hyperion HP- DS09-SMD (1 rudder, 1 thrust vector)
Motor: Hyperion ZS2218-14 motor (included with kit)
Prop: APC-E 9x4.7SF
ESC: Recommend 25A or above
Lipo : Hyperion HP-LG335- 850-3S or 1110-3S






As in all the past WBC deals, you pay for the item first, then we charge shipping at the direct rate only once they arrive via PayPal. There are NO UPS, NO EXTRAS, NO SALES TAX and NO PROFIT. You only pay the exact cost I bargained for.

We only have a couple of weeks on this deal, and we have to sell at least 5 to get the WBC Price (MSRP is $154.95) that represents about a $45 savings (not including sales tax).


Please post only if you are interested in joining the deal, or if you have any questions about how we do Wattflyers Buyers Club purchases. Please refrain from the "I wish I could" posts.

Anyone want one?

Gohmer,

Once again, this is the inquiry thread. If we get enough folks that want one, I create a Purchase thread, in the for sale area. Since you have difficulty following instructions, here they are again:

Its not new. We've done this before, and if I recall, you were put out by it then too. If you wish to participate please feel to add to this post, otherwise, bada ai fatti tuoi, non t'impicciare.

Any time a seller wants to bring a deal to the table a multiple item lot that offers wholesale pricing, no profit, and easy payment, absolutely.
I dont have to be the only one with WBC offers. At any time a Manufacturer or Retailer wants to step up and hook us up, they are welcome.

I find it amusing that the only person who is whining, has never participated. With over 200 items sold, no complaints from purchasers... just you, and even after all that, you are still open to participate. Amazing isnt it.

Perché siete così motivati a essere un disturbo Gohmer?

I had only recently heard of "thrust vectoring" and that was in a ducted fan. That is so cool! I wish I was even a decent pilot but that plane is way out of my abilities. I'm having enough trouble keeping my Slo Stick out of the trees. I'd put that one thru someone's window.

But thanks for the heads up! I'll have to watch this thread.

Apparently not. That's really a shame. This looks like a model that would raise a few eyebrows at the field.

Way beyond my abilities too, but I'm a crazy and slightly annoying showboater and I like to push myself to (and sometimes beyond) the edge of my abilities.

BTW... Are the dimensions really correct? Not even 38" wing span and 51" long? That's pretty unusual, isn't it?

Sorry you missed out, you really should have said something earlier if you wanted one.

And FYI, moderators do not have any access to make changes to accounts, we can only ban members as you know. Changes in any settings is an Administrator function only... But I do like the way you think, that we do have such power.

It's funny... I've been hanging here for almost two years and written almost 1400 posts without p*ssing off Nitro. I wonder what I'm doing wrong?

Back to the Hyperion. Are you getting one, Nitro?

Nope, Theres no Enigma coming with my name on it. I'm already over budget with my new Deuces Wild. It is on my wish list for sure, and who knows what next spring will bring.

Default Dead Calm after Hard Rain!

Hello Guys!

I just could not help it to drive all the way back to Orlando without stopping back at the RC Club field, especially with perfect conditions. I had exactly one full hour and 15 minutes of SUN light so, I wasted no time and got out my ENIGMA with the bright lights that Dave C. installed when it was his model.

Didn't have time to secure my iPHONE on my hat so, I opted to just take a few pictures of the model while it was on the runway in-between flights.

As you all can see the pin-point accuracy of the landings were a must!
