FYI, I purchased an electric Clown from Brodak last Christmas. Since then I have flown over 50 flights. Its a bit heavy and flys as such, but its really been a ball to fly. I can get home from work, not even have to change clothes, grab three precharged batteries, plane, and lines and run to the close school and put in three flights. It will run long enough, and complete the full AMA pattern. The motor mount area is a bit weak and I would suggest a bit of fiberglass to stiffin it up. The little cowl covers it up so its easy to do and doesnt show. I'm really surprised how much I enjoy the little thing. I normally only fly combat models. But the change I guess make it fun. Anyway, I would suggest this airplane to anyone flying control line.
