The ICON was designed to be an easy to fly, electric parkflier capable of being flown in the smallest of areas while still enabling the pilot to freely push the aerobatic envelope. Below is a video of a stock built ICON built per instructions, using only a $15 motor/ESC combo and a 2-S 800mah battery pack. In the first part of the video, the ICON is being flown at half throttle (including launch), later, it's stepped up a bit and played with. The audio does not match the video near the end as you hear the motor still revved up while you watch the ICON slow down for a soft landing.
