Night Prowler,
I do agree with you about the inverted flat spins...it'll spin like a top! As far as negative comments go, IMHO being honest about a particular plane's characteristics may be helpful to others who are seeking info. I also have made quite a few flights with mine over the past two years and believe that there are many other models that are superior to this one.

Well this may be an old dead thread BUT I just finished up an ARF kit for this bird and am ready for the Maiden. I got it nearly finished, off the consignment table at my LHS. It looked to be an excellent bird, and great price!

I spent hours on the landing gear, and finally got them in there pretty good, with reinforced bulkhead behind, extra 6-32 bolts for solidity, double fiberglass reinforced landing struts, bigger wheels, and pretty wheel pants (long and sleek from Hyperion). Should be able to handle some mild pancakes.

She came with a nice AXI motor and e-Flite 40A ESC and takes the same packs as my TREX, so I am all set for power and flight time. Will definitely give unlimited vertical - my first plane so capable.

I know she's not the greatest, and I expect poor performance at low speeds, with tip stalls possible on landing approaches that are too slow. I should be able to handle that, and still enjoy learning some of my first 3d with her.
