It's pretty much a clone of the Parkzone Habu from Horizon Hobby. Doubt if it has the two digital 9g servos in the tail and the E-Flite 60A esc, but it is about one third the price. The Habu has the gray colored EPO type foam. I have a couple of other Dynam products, and they are a very good value for the $$$

I haven't had any problems with the stock servos. One thing you want to do is us a 5s 3000 mah lipo instead of the 4s.

I know someone who bought the parts to complete an airframe for around $70. he put over 1kw+ watts, and it still lands easy. Also, search and you'll find a discount code for nitroplanes.

I just upgraded the stock motor and esc with a Sapac MB-1 and turnigy 100a esc. My watt meter shows 1700w at about 92a at full throttle. This plane flies now like it should.
I am getting ready to throw retracts on it next.
