The plane is not fast and very stable even at low speed. Landings do not cause any problem. A very good model for a EDF beginner. Recommend.

The airframe is really very fragile. Needs to be strengthen by carbon rods to withstand rough landings and just handling. The EDF is rather of good quality. Mine didn't need to be balanced.

The flying weight is in any case more than declared. Mine with carbon is about 400 g.

Very nice looking plane but needs lots of carbon to strengthen the frame. The EDF is of very good quality. No need to balance. The thrust is more than 400 g with 3s 1300 20C. It takes above 29A, power is about 280W.

Took me an hour or so to put together. You need to trim the join edges with a hobby knife before gluing and the foam is very thin so I mainly used hot glue and/or clear tape rather than CA and got a much stronger result. Plane flies well - with 2 gyros it has very smooth flight! The foam is very fragile (both wingtips and nose were broken before maiden!) but trim any sharp points off and tape edges and it will be stronger. Good value at $50

The postage is correct for these model's, yes the jets weight is only 300grams but it is 790mm long and 670mm wingspan, its all 1 peice so the box has to be bigger and strong enough to prevent damage during postage,

good job hobbycity keep the bargains coming

Almost 2kg for a flat profile depron plane and a small EDF???



So Add 2kg EMS postage to it and it hardly seems a bargain.
