Nice plane and good Flying, Very realistic details, with a motor emax cf2822 and emax esc 20A fly to fast and got good aerobatics Styles.
The wheels to softs and have good landing because have the rear wheel very strong,
I recommend to all the beginners fly this and relax!
I bought this for my seven year old Grandson to fly with me on the Buddy Box and I must say it is a nice little aeroplane with plenty of scale detail. Coupling rudder/aileron produces very smooth turns and little power is required for stooging around on still evenings. Only weak point I have found so far is the scale plastic 'suspension' on the U/C which broke on the first landing (we fly off grass). This was simply removed as it has no obvious function. I was un-able to find a suitable bell motor on the HK site so fitted a larger Turnigy C2826-1650 running on Rhino 1250 2s 20c cells and 30 amp esc. I never use full power!
All in all a great little model for those rare still summer evenings with bags of scale character and mild aerobatic capability.
Strong points: Scale detail and sweet handling characteristics. Value for money.
Weak Points: Scale undercarriage looks pretty but made from brittle plastic, recommended motor not available.it's FMS mini j-3 kit..manual cover printed by FMS..
manual is very poor...poor ..poor..
and this item delivery waste over 1 week(HK warehouse systems is very terrible),but kit detail is goodOtima compra , valeu recebi em otimo esstado , voces estao de parabens, podem comprar que garantido a entrega.Got this plane recently, this is a great looking plane and very scale looking for a foam plane. easy to install took me about an hour to hook up all the electronics and parts.
Very tame flight characterisitcs, aileron set at 75 throw, elevator at 65, rudder at 50. battery used is 750mah 3s rhino. fits perfectly in the battery compartment. no need to add any weights for CG.
need to take note on the wheels, the hub cap (wheel fasterner) is a screw type, mine was spoiled when i pulled the cap out, thought it was a snap on.
overall it is very relaxing to fly the plane..a good plane for "off duty" aerobatic rc pilots and beginners.
