This plane is a really good plane when u fixed all the little things that is bent and twisted in the box, poor quality of the people how is supposed to check if the product is ok. On my first order the talewing was missing, (no problem hobbyking sent a new plane) but in that box the rods was missing, so I got a to fix one good plane out of two not so good planes, but when it is "reddy to fly" it is a really fun plane to fly, and u can do som really cool "moves" whit it. Maybe not the plane u should by if u never flown a rc plane before.First of all I am new and I got this plane because it was labelled as a trainer/beginner, and is my first ever RC plane, here is a list of issues i found:
>Motor mount crooked
>Rudder arrived bent, very flimsy.
>Different landing gear than pictured, wheel arches wont fit.
>Every servo needed re-centering which involves cutting away at the wing for one of them
>ESC plug different than recommended battery. (XT60 not JST)
>Missing prop, lucky I bought spares
>Wing bolt had nothing to screw into missing part i assume
After I fixed all this which I admit I did enjoy, I went out for a flight on a super calm day, taxied a few times and then tried to take off, no success, the prop is so close to the ground that the smallest mistake had the engine and mount torn from the foam, go home repair go back out I actually momentarily got of the ground this time and pitched up and yawed straight into the dirt. did this a few times then cracked the cowling, 3rd trip out and after half an hour of attempts and 3 batteries I had a very short lived flight, the control surfaces were so incredibly sensitive and the speed that the plane had to travel to fly was much higher than i was comfortable with, shortly afterwards I lawn-darted it, snapping off a wing, prop and creasing the fuselage. This plane may be good for people more experienced than me but I had a terrible first RC experience and the flight characteristics are not what i would consider beginner.had to re-shape and brace the elevator so it could function. All push-rods and wires under-spec and buckle, had to add eyelets to fix. Motor dead out of the box, swapped esc. still dead. not supported in box in transit - arrived with rudder badly bent. Nut to accept wing bolt missing will have to replace bolt and nut as well as fixing new nut into the plastic cradle. Been working on it all day and not a chance of flying today ( now after 6pm). Nothing like 10 minutes advertised. Pretty disappointed. Will request an entire new model to replace it. One that's been carefully inspected for quality and completion.wrong battery plug for 7.4vNice little plane ......well it is now i have sorted the ailerons out as one was binding and the servo was so far off center that the control wires were digging into the fus i had to dig the servo out and center it . and watch the elevator if it moves to far up it will hit the fus and your surfaces come out of alignment......other than that Add a good dose of expo ...and it flies very well ...This plane flies very niceley,tho it does stall badly...but not easily,you can fly it very slowly before it stalls,i can only recommend this plane to beginners.
One issue is that the spar between the two elevator panels is very weak and breaks easily tho this can be fixed with a toothpick or something like that.
The plane is fun to fly,and is not to expensive. I love it!Waste of your money! Missing several parts (which i was refunded $7 for) came with an xt-60 connector for JST batteries, every G D screw in the motor mount was cross threaded (the screws that hold the motor to the mount), gear assembled backwards, screws for the motor mount (mount to plane) stripped out leading to reverse thrust angle, rudder has absolutely no support and just bends sideways. COMPLETE TRASH! Worst plane ever! And I love flying the cessna on MS Flight Sim but this piece of trash as the first non-scratch built plane I've ever purchased has made me seriously question ever buying another aircraft EVER AGAIN! I had to wait for nearly a month before I could fly it as the ticket was reviewed and now that I got to fly it I wish I had sent it back for a full refund. DON'T WASTE YOU DAM MONEY! RUN AWAY FROM THIS PAGE NOW!super Flugzeug ich bin rundum zufriedenIs this true? My cessna have a landing gear but no wheels! Are wheels a special add on? You ship me the wheels or must i buy this separately? My order nr 20013582991 Thanks for info!The Air-frame I got cannot physically fly. The first issue I had was the flex in the aileron control rods. They are designed to be flexible but at the points the leave the outer sheath there was to much flex. The major issue I had was on up elevator the elevators hit the tail and force was capable of ripping the horizontal stabilizers off. I cut as much as off the air-frame above the elevators as I could but it wasn't enough. On maiden up elevator caused the stabilizers to rip off end result shattered nose cone, broken prop and tore motor off.
