New Horizon Hobby products. Thoughts?

So I realized horizon hobby has been releasing quite a few new products, mostly on the cheaper side, which I like cause they are in my price range. I just saw the youtube video of this, which I think is really cool. A warbird with SAFE and AS3x for 90 bucks? YES PLEASE!!!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X5v0RgkQdZg https://www.horizonhobby.com/t-28-trojan-s-bnf-basic-with-safe-hbz5650
I also like the new fpv ship they have, the F-27. cheap, it look somewhat fast, and has a 150mW VTX. I like having more range the my inductrix, which has 25mW VTX and can barely make it halfway thru my house. Looking forward to this one when it comes out! https://www.horizonhobby.com/produc...e-new-releases/um-f-27-fpv-bnf-basic-blh03250
The final one is the X-VERT. A VTOL for 150$?! COOL!!!!! I can't wait to get my hands on this thing as I have never flown a VTOL before. https://www.horizonhobby.com/produc...ne-new-releases/x-vert-vtol-bnf-basic-efl1850


Well, I cannot say anything about the other two... but the X-VERT is a blast to fly! ha We had bunch of fun with it when we visited the HH HQ a few weeks ago in Illinois! You will def have a good time with that as well it is SUPER easy to fly...especially in calm conditions! ha

Blessings and happy flying my friend!

I saw the ad about the T-28 with SAFE and it reminded me of another post with someone just dying to get his hands on a warbird as a first flyer. I'd be interested in seeing a new pilot try this one.

My son has a full size F-27Q Stryker and likes it a lot. It is very fast,or as they say in Maine, wicked fast!

Avert, looks interesting. I like the idea. I'll have to check it out more.
