If you're after instant fun this is the plane! It flies surprisingly nicely, like a "big one". Make sure you have enough space, it's quite fast for the size! Flies well outdoors, even in moderate wind. Piloting needs some skills, it's not for first-time beginners. However, it's quite robust to minor crashes, and can serve as a great training plane before you dare to fly bigger 3D planes like the Yak. After some practice I could fly loopings, rolls, snap rolls, inverted loops, etc. - it climbs vertically, but would need a bit more power for hover. When you first fly it make sure to reduce aileron throw to 75%, with 30% exponential, and maybe some expo on the elevator, but leave full range at 100%. Once you get used to it you can add aileron throw to suit - but be warned, this thing can do 2 rolls per second at full throw... )
Great fun, and great price.I am impressed, three days from Hng Kong to my door in Norway. The packing was Ok and everything is working fine. The instruction booklet was missing so I have to use internet to get the necesary tips for setup. The aircraft behaves very fine and is quite fast be careful on your first flights.great deal, sweet little planeFuselage is not weak.
Original power is ok to use soft wind condition.
Only problem is little bit fast. ^^A truly amazing little plane!
handles perfectly, very precise.
the C.G must be adjusted carfully (I'm flying C.G=31mm). Flight time is ~ 8 minutes. I bought a bunch of additional batteries - ZIPPY Flightmax 138mAh.
It is recommended to remove the original prop (very brittle) and mount GWS 5030/5043 props with a prop saver.I plan to covert it to brushless with an AP05 brushless motor and the XP 3A 1S Brushless Speed Controller.
Thank you HobbyKing for a great buy.
