After a small accident (I actually fell out of my truck's bed/camper shell, crushed my Dynam Waco, and scraped my leg on the tailgate, before the plane even made one flight), I needed spare parts. These guys had the most extensive inventory in the US for most Dynam products.
Currently they are offering free shipping, even for small parts orders, for which I am forever grateful.
"The Flex Innovations Super Plug -N- Play FV-31 Cypher VTOL EDF is the most advanced and versatile vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) and short take-off and landing (STOL) model aircraft of its type. Two fixed EDF units are mounted towards the leading edge of the wing, while two larger EDF units are mounted to a rotating pod at the rear of the aircraft. This advanced EDF configuration provides the greatest in total performance versatility, while remaining simple to use and easy to fly."

Three in-flight selectable configurations.
• 45% "Magic" (fans are set at a 45% angle for awesome acrobatics
The Cypher's capabilities were demonstrated by one of our newest members, Brad. See the short video below. About the same price you'd pay for the 80 mm EDF options out there, less speed but with mind-boggling acrobatics!
The Air Force marked the 116th anniversary of the Dec. 17, 1903, Wright brothers flight at Kitty Hawk by issuing a request for information (RFI) aimed at helping foster a new powered flight revolution — electric or hybrid electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft — eventually self-flying.
Just two months after that RFI, on Feb. 25, the service dipped another toe into the eVTOL waters by issuing an “Innovative Capabilities Opening” solicitation to eVTOL developers to apply for Air Force support if they plan to meet certain performance criteria and will conduct a “first full scale flight prior to 17 December 2020.”
While searching for Waco Parts, I came upon this new gadget. This flight controller for fixed wing RC aircraft provides some drone-like features, such as Return Home, with some telemetry information, such as altitude, speed, distance, and flight information.
It works with S.Bus and DSMX and DSM2 receivers. Cost $97.99.
