Awesome plane. Where are the spares!The one I received had a bad motor with all sorts of play in it which I had to replace. Also had to borrow leftovers screws from another plane (different vendor) to finish putting this model together. One of the main decals stuck when removing from box and tore, so I will be painting this plane instead. Hate to be such a critic, but there were enough issues which cost me $$ and time to correct, that I cannot rate it any higher. Very disappointed overall. Once the weather cooperates I expect it to fly fine, now that it is finally together and has a suitable/working motor.
Here's a video of

Here's a video of my maiden flight:
This is a very nice trainer plane, made out of plastic and EPO.
It flies well and the motor has enough power for the weight of the plane and more.
The controls are very responsive and it can and will do some aerobatics maneuvers.
It's a RTF kit so comes ready to fly, and it will take you about an hour or two to put the plane together.
The battery that comes in the kit will last you about 7-8 minutes more or less.
Could go to 10 minutes if there's no wind and if you go easy on it.
It can fly alot slower with flaps that makes landing alot easier.
The not so good:
Although it's a high wing trainer, it's a bit heavy, so you will need a fair amount of speed to land without
using the flaps.
Be gentle but authoritative with the controls when landing, it has a bad habit of wanting to faceplant itself
on the runway and on cross winds that big wing can unbalance it.
It's a shame that the battery charger will only work on 100-240v AC, witch means no charging on the field with
the car 12V battery unless you got some converter.
The transmitter is missing one important feature for beginners...dual rates. The plane is very responsive and it
can be a bit too much for an unexperienced hand.
The instructions manual it's kind of easy to follow, but use your knowlege and common sense when choosing the screws,
it can be a bit confusing sometimes and some screws or nuts can be miGreat airplane, flies really nice and easy, the motor has a lot of power and the battery keeps the plane over 15 min flying. this is a great model for beginners and it can do some aerobatics too!
