I am impressed with this glider. This is my first RC plane and it flies well. I have crashed it 4 times since i got it (noobie), by no means the gliders fault. the last crash was up in a tree with about a 70 foot fall. A little white Gorilla glue and reinforced tape to fix the fuselage and need a new ESC which should be in this week before I can take to the skies once more. Can't wait!I'm very content to have bought this glider, it is better of all of Multiplex or Bixler gliders for performance and strenght, but servos can be improved!Very nice and easy handling glider! Not very fast and have good climbimg ratio. Ok to fly in dynamic wind flows.This glider is fantastic value for money, from getting it out of the box to being ready to fly took no time at all. I fly this glider on a zippy 11.1v 2200mah lipo and there is enough power for multiple climbs on a day with no thermals, on a good day though it can stay up for hours. The first flight lasted 40 mins and I only put 550mah back into the battery, the second flight I shifted the battery a bit further back and increased the aileron throws and flew for over 1 hour including a few loops and rolls, the rolls are slow however and need loads of down elevator when inverted. All in all I have been very impressed with this glider and the surface finish on the foam is super smooth.
