Default E-flite Pawnee

Would anyone care to comment on the flight characteristics of the E-flite Pawnee? Have heard that it is very difficult to take off without it nosing over.

The E-Flite Pawnee 15e, is a beautiful flying sport plane with no bad habits. I have one that I fly normal and have put floats on it and fly off of water.

Different strokes for different folks I guess. I bought a Pawnee 15, put an E-Flite 25 in it and found it to be such a lousy flying plane I gave it away after 12 flights

Watch out for the rudder. Mine did not move enough and I traced it to the nylon bearing for the tail wheel. The rudder is glued to this bearing and shouldn't be. The bearing has a blade that is inserted into the verticle stab and the back part is glued to the rudder. You have to break this loose without breaking the rudder. The only part of this bearing that should be glued to the rudder is the metal tiller part of the tailwheel assembly.
