tried ... yesterday, my first impression, I would say great, ok balance, stability, ok, ok inverted flight, I think that this aircraft can be a basis to begin the aerobatics, however, in any case, the advice is for fun and is for the flight to figures ... very niceI'm flying my Vision EP with a Turnigy 2209, 28 turn, 1050Kv Brushless outrunner motor, using a 3S 2200mah Nano-Tech Li-Po on a 10" x 4.7" APC prop giving 900g thrust at 18.4 Amps and at 11 Watts. It works really great with this model keeping it very light. Plenty of poke in this motor and it doesn't get very warm at all (neither does the 20 Amp ESC). Very free running, doesn't give much breaking effect as the prop windmills power off, even a very low airspeed. Great little motor for lighter aerobatic models.
Model flies great and is impressive when doing aero's at low speed close in. Model is for those who want a bit of finesse in their flying rather than "Throttle Jockeys" and high speed flying. Think those who report breakages of tailplanes are using too much power and speed and are probably using heavy motors/batteries etc. KEEP IT LIGHT and it's a very rewarding buy.Very well built and finished, the covering being particularly good. Good instructions etc. Very well boxed and arrived with no damage whatsoever. All parts there nothing missing. Mounting holes for servos are perfect and needed no cutting to allow fitting of servos. The only fly in the ointment is the recommendation by Hobby-King on their Global Website of the suitable motor for this model i.e. EPS100 brushless motor with gearbox which has to be stick-mounted. Pictures of this model show the two forward bulkheads cut to take a stick-mount. The model has now been modified and supplied with different bulkheads and no provision for stick-mounting. There is now a box type motor mount supplied which takes a 2209/28 1050Kv brushless motor, on which it flies very well.This plane is a very good deal. The plane is build very clean and I fly it with a smal engine. It was so good, that I bought a second plane one week later.Maidened this one today in about 10-12 mph wind.
My setup: KD A22-20 spinning an 11x4.7SF, 30A ESC, 1300 mAh 3S and 4x HXT900 servos.
Well behaved and handled the wind very well. Elevator & rudder seems a bit small for full out 3D, but I'll maximize the throws and give it a try when there is a bit less wind :)
This is an outstanding plane. It's a mid-wing tail dragger, so it's not a trainer. But the quality of the finish, the straightness of the build, and the ease of completion make this one of the best I have seen. It is built up of balsa and (minimal) hardwood. The optional motor mount and much of the fuselage is lite ply. On the down side, the main landing gear is quite flimsy, and the wheels provided are small, so the first modification I made was larger wheels to allow use from our grass field.
If you decide to put in a stick-mounted motor, you will need to provide the stick. There is a booklet with very limited instructions on assembly, but it has good pictures, and it covers all of the basics. The finished plane is a very nice-looking model you can be proud to take to the field.A rather older design, but the plane flys well. Remember to reinforce the horizontal stab to prevent stab failure during flight. I use Hobby Kings 1mm flat carbon fiberI have received the kit today in Belgium.
It's a very beautiful aircraft, very light and the covering is superb.
It's a very good deal for the price and I now I will buy the blue model again.
