i just dont think its as good as they claim it is......he makes it sound like its the absolute easiest flying plane in the world. it might fly realy well, and it might be easy enough to fly as a trainer, but i just dunno.
Ill give you a quoted argument against the plane(this from my instructor of about15 yrs experience, and a man whos been flying since the first radio systems came out and before(with control line)) IF its a flatbottom wing, its goingto be harder to land and take off since its A. a taildragger and B. a low wing. the way a flatbottom wing produces lift, having it sitting at an angleis going to force the nose to want to pop off the ground fast and not let the tail come up properly(ive seen it happen with a high wing plane so i know what hes talking about.). If they designed it with a mostly symetrical airfoil, its going to make it harder for the folks who have trouble catching on to correcting themselves out of a bank(wich took me a bi to get used to the degree with my hobbistar, and its only a semi symetrical), and make it harder in general to fly
MAYBE if the released it as airframe only, illd be willing to get one and give it to the club(or loan) so i could get my instructors flying it and see what it was like, but its ridiculous they wont sel it as an ARF, only the RTF.
I think it will be a novell idea, and it MIGHT work,i dunno. I have a feeling its not going to be nearly as smooth as the review described when it gets in the hands of a novice pilot
anyway that my 2 pennies on the subject. im gonna go put my plane together so i can go to the field. HOPEFULY i will get to land tonight .....
