From the pic, it looks slow. Like, Whippet/Viper/Stalker slow. I'm guessing it flies like a beefy Stalker. I can't say I'm terribly excited.

It's faster than those discs...At least the protos were. They were a little faster than a TB imo.

Yeah, after looking at some profile pics, I'd say Mike C's Orc comparison from the other thread is a pretty good starting point:

It was discussed a long time ago, but those specs are pretty much wrong. Hopefully one of us will be able to illustrate this when we get ours, but if you put a ruler across the wing it will say 1.85cm instead of the 2.0 that the PDGA mysteriously measured somehow.

Ah, well then. Maybe this will be a little more helpful:



The disc that is cut off is an Old Mold Beast. Pic was taken from Moose's profile page.

That doesn't look like an Orc to me...Looks like a SF. Maybe it's just the pic, but the nose looks awful thick/blunt for an Orc. Either way, the Volt has a blunter nose than the Orc, doesn't have a flat part at the end of the wing, and is a bit more concave in the center of the bevel. You can tell by that pic (SF or Orc, doesn't matter) that the real 2.0cm wing looks a bit longer/more stretched out than the Volts.

Yep...That one on the left is the original starfire mold, the dx is the familiar SF or starfire-x. Look at that dx Starfire compared to the supposed "Orc"...They look the same. The Orc has a sharper beak.
I don't know though, can't say either way with confidence.

Back in like '06-'07 a bunch of Orcs came out with what looked like nose spacers/blunt noses, and that is actually what that looks like. Alexsey Bubis had a bunch of these with his own stamp.
