Reminds me of the Delta Vortex, not terribly quick. The wing looks a little thick and with the 13X6 to haul around that 7-8 lbs might have good vertical, slow landings but to break 120 you would be lucky. Shave some thickness out of the wing, install retracts, and put a 10x10 on that 90 w/ a pipe and you might have something. I know, it's hard to do that with an ARF.

Here is the Delta Vortex for comparison. I thought about one of these but when I researched it, they were way too slow.

Sure does look like a Vortex.

The BTE Vortex and the ARF version both fly great.......wonderful planes. They are fairly fast in the air......but they are by no means diamond dust quick. Pretty thick wing.

If this plane is basically a copy, Im sure it will perform about the same.

I do not own the Delta 9 or a Vortex. However I test flew 3 or 4 of the ARF Vortex's over the past season.
