Awesome small slow flier! Flies very slow and is easy to control. Build quality is good, even has a magnet secured canopy. Came with EU plug for charger but any micro losi charger will work.

It arrived ready to go. I was very happy with the price. About on par with flying an uberlite. Was not able to do a full loop but still a lot of fun. Decent flight time and the batteries from my HUBSAN x107 quadcopter fit perfectly in it. Only complaint is parts availablity but at this price I would by an extra one just for spares.

I received a totally defective item. Transmitter and receiver do not communicate ( does not bind ) and therefor nothing worked. The item is thus totally useless. Purchase at your own risk because don't count on Hobby King customer service or their resolution department to bail you out.

these are amazing 15 min from box to air, flys so great faster then i thought it was going to be, but it was still getting lift just under quarter throttle. didnt use the doubble sided tape to hole top wing on as the tap was already lifting off on the already stuck side, used foam safe glue insted, 20 min flying around without even charging the battery. perfect gift to get the little kiddies into flying.. so happy, love ya hobby king

great backyard flyer(in no wind)extremely light, very slow flyer. Comes with charger that plugs into standard USB(red light means good to go!?) ensure you know exactly where you want upper wing aligned, once you peal double tape and set wing there is no second chance. Onwards&Upwards!

Well for the $19.99 price it is pretty darn good, I ordered and received three of them, two for gifts and one for the heck of it. No complaints at all!, it is what I expected and it is a great little flyer! Here is a hint, undo the rudder control horn very carefully from the control wire so you can move the rudder from left to right to free it up as it is very stiff.

Recieved with no shipping damage. Circuit board was just shoved into the opening with wiring tangled. Elevator servo was jammed as recieved, so called warranty support unable to provide part even with part number. Replaced servo from my stock and refused to maintain flight. Found gear box out of line an so sloppy that would jam at times. This looks like a good idea but complete failure of any quality control makes it a sick joke!

Love this little plane . Took it to the gym for a 3 hour session .
What a fun thing I put a 300mah 1s on the side with Velcro just a fraction to long to fit inside was getting a 20min flight per battery .
found the c of g was well out at 120mm so just moved the battery forward till it flew great around 25mm .
This is only any good for a bit of fun do not expect to do any loops or rolls or prop hanging it is not capable .
This was my first time flying indoors so wanted something simple and it is but lots of fun.
It is Not as slow as some people say ,and great at dives and very sharp turns .
But the best thing is the TX , my mates could have a fly in seconds due to being able to swap from mode 1 to mode 2 in a split second

First outing at the gym. The supplied battery is a Hubsan type lipo. Available from many places. EG* Overlander . I have since bought 4 X 250ma hubsan lipos.. with The C/G correct, I needed 2 pennies & a lump of blutak to get it right. The bigger 8 gram battery should allow extra long flight times although the standard battery gives 5 minutes. The model whacked the wall many times during the 2 hour session, the only damage was a split in the fuselage on a joint, so a quick dab of glue fixed it. No problem so far with the top wing held by double sided tape. A good flier, and excellent choice for a beginner
