Default Alpha 450 Sport

Hi all, im thinking of getting the Alpha 450 Sport and wanted to get some feed back on this plane. I havn't flown in a couple of years and wanted to get my skills up before trying to fly my E-flite P-47 and Electrajet.

Yes, I like that one and fly it extensively, its a fine high wing aileron trainer and handling is great, wheels are just big enough to land on cut grass to give you even more landing room, Its take off is swift with heavier throttle, and reaches a touch of speed 2/3 rds or more throttle. Landing is quite easy and I often deadstick it in. Only caution it is balsa but again it flys terrific. Believe it may call for 1800 lipo, but I do use a 2100 and 2200 lipos. Handles super even with a DX5 spectrum transmitter, now use the high throws position.

I finally uploaded a youtube, and yep, deadstick with the Alpha, what a ship, enjoy . Out of frame abit but great landing, along with my noisy feet, hah.

My battery is in the forward position and seems to match the correct COG, slightest down elevator trim works, no up on this one please, yes it also hand launches with ease if your skilled on those, anything over 1/2 throttle and away she goes. BEST
