Very twitchy and rudder/elevator very brittle. Not a bad plane though. Motor has plenty of power, rolls quick and very precise. Negatives are that it has to be flown fast as it has extreme tip stall tendancies at anything under 1/2 throttle and uncontrollable wing rock when trying to harrier. Made canopy removable so I could easily change over batteries (didn't want to remove wing all the time).
Good price and goes together quickly. More of an acrobatic than 3D. For more experienced pilots, deffinately not a beginners plane.Recieved plane 4 days from order to the Gold Coast. Well packed. Easy to assemble. As others have mentioned, landing gear is to light but works. Tail wheel is not a great fit but works. First flight took very little to trip. Flew it on a very windy day as I was impatient. Although it did struggle in the wind (nearly any foamie would have) it flew nice and was easy to trip and control. For the price this is great little model for the person looking to move into more aerobatic planes. Enjoy.i got my extra 330 today it took 4 days from NSW to Geelong VIC!! the construction was simple quick and fun the material is great except for the rudder and elevator they are a very weak foam that snaps easy but if your a pro you wont crash and it wont be a problem to you! :) great plane amazing power extremely fast and great for its price i recommend this to any pros or a beginner coming up from a slow low end low wing park size flyer all in all its a great plane and simple to get it going!Hard to recomend this one. The undercarriage is only mounted to the foam and it super weak. The battery is held in with velcro, this is a really bad design and failed on me. If it had a plastic battery cage that the undercarriage was attached to like other models, would be great. Performs ok, super responsive but needs more power, only fly in no breeze or upgrade the motor. Bought the pitts special after this model and finding it a much better plane.Received 4 days after delivery to vic. Well packaged. Goes together very easy. Flew as a stock model for a while. Quite slow and easy to fly. Not a first plane though quite easy. Upgraded to a 220w system. And flew much better, until the tail plane snapped in half mid flight... Managed to land it, and built a full custom balsa tail plane. Flies well again.Nice plane, very durable got away from me while triming out on first flight do to high throw rates and flew into a tree it only had a few light scratches. Took up right after i got it out of the tree on very low rates and i flew like a dream. Make sure for the first few flights you keep the rates low.This is a Dynam model. I bought a couple of these about 3 years ago and they were made of a different foam then. If the model is EPO then it will be a lot stronger, however the tail was and still is made of very thin foam (like depron).
Model flies well in anything under 10mph winds, and if very manoeuvrable. Will take off on grass and will also prop-hang.
Damage is easy to fix with a little bit of epoxy or hot glue. My plane snapped in 4 pieces and was glued back together many many times!
Very durable large cell foam. ESC is a bit small for running 6 minutes of aerobatics, but I left an old 20c 1300mah 3s inside the plane (oh yeah, you need to unsrew the wing to remove the battery and it comes with a power switch, so just cut two holes for the battery and esc leads, so you can charge with out removing the wing.) and the esc and motor are only warm to the touch with moderate flying.
Check your CG carefully. I have 2, and one has to have the battery secured in the nose area (tail heavy), plenty of room though. Also, lose the rubber band prop mount, or you'll lose your prop. MOST IMPORTANTLY, get a prop with less pitch, especially for stunt flying. Definitely a good 3D bird, and seemingly unlimited 3D at 2/3 throttle. I'm scared to push it too hard with the included ESC, but probably pretty awesome with a 30-40amp and 30-40c battery, if the motor can take it???
VERY DURABLE, great 3D trainer for a budget flyer, but also lots of control surface and power for the advanced flyers. My servos in both kits were fine and of above average quality, but I can't vouch for the kit you get shipped.
Plane flies very nice, good stunts and mild 3D but had problem with ESC burning out (using recommended prop and battery), causing plane to crash. As well, landing gear not great for grass field take off or landings. That said, like the plane enough that ordered new ESC and engine from HK and will get it back in the air soon as fun to fly.This plane is old foam technology. Semi- rough landing on dirt... the fuselage cracked in the middle.
From here on... only EPP for me.
