It is a Parkzone Radian Pro. I would suggest starting with the normal Radian, a bit easier to fly, my first radian still flew after multiple crashes and glue and then my pointer chew up the fuselage when the garage door stood open.

Hi
The tail is not the place to tie as i have discovered even with a very light lure. Rather tie to the center of balance.

I use spring wire to make a little circle, wind it twice and let the two ends of the wire extend in a V. The two points of the V gets pushed together to go into the one ring of the swivel and the string gets tied into the little circle.

I'll post a picture some time

Cheers
Anton

If that doesn't give your hybrid a workout, nothing will.

Anyway here is the release rig I use. Simple but when you have a bogie on your tail there is no time to flick switches.

As per SWMerlins question - Do you use a parachute on the bait/lure Anton or simply let the bird fly to the ground with it's prize?
