LUCKYYYY! Looks like a low wing aerobatic trainer... Good second plane. I would not expect any hot knife edge action out of it unless you master the stunning manouver known as the "falling knife edge" This is where you put the plane into a knife edge and as it is lossing altitude you simply roll out of it as low as you dare. Far more spectacular in a plane that can hold a knife edge where you do the same thing but instead of rolling out you power out maintaining the knife edge neutralizing the decent mere feet off the runway.

Nice plane. It's like 220 on tower. My guess is that if it can be a quick pattern like flier. As for aerobatics it probebly will do well. The regular spins although not flat, snaps, rolls, loops, and an ok knife edge that will require alot of speed. I've never seen this plane before but this is my guess based on it's looks and a quick look on google.

I've got the older style Dart, and have been flying it for four years now. I powered mine with a bushed TT 61, and it is easily the fastest single engine plane in my fleet. It's a clean airframe, and has no bad habits. I won mine on eBay, and it came with no tail feathers. I scratched some out of foam and covered them in balsa and monokote. It will knife edge with no coupling into the next county. Fun plane, and a great aerobat.

Wow they really changed the plane alot. My plane is a simple wooden structure inside the plastic fuselage. The wings are foam core and covered with Lanier 'Aeroskin'. The plastic on mine is prone to cracking out, and I'm probably going to have to retire the plane after this season. I also converted mine to a tail dragger. Are your tail feathers balsa? If so, you may want to consider adding to the rudder, as I know the stock one is pretty small. With the tail plane on the thrust line, this plane will knife edge very well, with no coupling. Mine is so good, I take off, and go into instant knife edge just a few feet off the ground.

Very cool!! It's allways exciting to win something like that for free. It happened to me last summer from AirfoilZ I won a free Edge 540 from them, & it turned to be the nicest foamy I have ever seen. Congrats, have a ball with it!!

I don't know how EXTRA won his but last summer my club had a "Family Day" event at the field. Fun fly, food, friends and door prizes. Open to all members for free. This is the door prize I won:
http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXCSW5&P=7
Haven't put it together yet, been too busy with other stuff and having to get accessories together for it.

FREE! The best way to win things. All I had to do was show up and have fun.
