I have to say it looks pretty.

I was browsing through the interweb and spotted a trainer that i had not seen before so i thought i would mention it as cessna's are so popular for the easy handling.

I think the size is just right for a trainer/ park flyer As it's a 965mm wingspan model so you wont have any trouble transporting it around.It has LED lights on the wing tips for those pilots that like there models to light up like a Christmas tree and is the standard 4 channel configuration.

It seems the manufacturer produces this in four different flavours as well as 2 different colour schemes - red or blue.

Kit version , PNP , ARF = PNP+battery & charger , RTF

The specs i found for it are the following-

★ Wing Span: 965mm/37.99in
★ Length: 790mm/31.10in
★ Weight: 710g

Configuration:
★ Motor: DST-1200( KV1200)
★ Battery: LI-PO 11.1V,1300mAh 15C
★ ESC: 20A Brushless ESC
★ R/C System: 2.4Ghz 4ch E401 radio
★ Servo: 9gx4

If the FW-190 and the GEEBEE R3R that Top RC Hobby make are anything to go by that this will be a great flyer as the manufacturer seem to know there stuff as i have not read any bad things about there planes so far.
They seem to be shaping up to take on the big boys and beet them as there knocking out some smashing planes now.

They also produce the all the spare parts to keep it flying so you wont end up with a lame duck like quit a number of other manufactures models i have owned.
Im going to get my hands on one in about 10+ days time so will post some photos but i grabbed some photos from there web site to be going on with.

The Best of British to you in your aeronautical endeavourers.
Translated for American's - good luck with your flying.

Landing gear, both main and nose look rather suspect!

That was my first thought also, the cheap wire gear looks to be very flimsey and probably won't hold up very well. Also if the nose wheel is stearable it will probably break after one hard landing. Aside from that it is a decent looking plane but I prefer to install my own power and control systems, that way I know what I'm getting and a lot of RTF planes have a nasty habit of having really cheap and unreliable electronics in them.
