Looks amazing, just like a proper, scaled down heavyweight. Reminds me of a S1 version of Cruella

Team RRC has done it again folks!

That looks rather cool and beautifully built as we have come to expect from team RCC.

That looks awesome Leo! I hope to see it in the plastic really soon.

A hpxf only does 90 degrees, does the axe come all the way down ? I noticed its past the 90 degree point in one pic, so I wasn't sure

My HPXFs do a bit more than 90, maybe it varies from servo to servo?

That does look great though, hope mine can look that good one day :)

I did some testing on HPX F's on a Spektrum DX6i, and with the travel maximised and using the "throttle cut" button, I was able to get about 130 degrees of movement from one extreme to the other.

Looks nice ^^.

Awesome job Will, I thought it was going to be plastic, but its still cool :)

Is IA6 taller than IA5 ?

I hope we get this metal rule overturned so that can compete

BTW Will, the AWS 30 event is no longer the day before Maidstone, so you could come if you want to :)
