Basic plane is dirty, needs retracts and all that junk on the fuse chopped off. Mine with Jett 90 flew well, just no top end due to landing gear, etc. Basic aiprlane not bad, just not good. Spend a few additional bucks and buy a Alley Cat, well thought out, good construction, and will be quick with a good hot 60 or 90. Also flys well!

Its an pretty-ok plane.

Very similar to the Sportsman Aviation f-20 - and nearly like the Juno F-20

As noted, its not set up for retracts, but for what it is..... it flys fairly well. A bit heavy - but not too bad.
Quite a few folks flying them.

I have one like it, the Cermark. If it still has the "fat back" fuselage I
would get one of the other F-20's on the market with the slender
rear fuselage.

In this first picture....I had to remake all the tail parts on mine because the
rear of the plane was twisted, and all the tail pieces were warped beyond
usage. You can see the slightly different colors. What you cannot see is
all the parts I made have slight tapers in them to make up for the twisted
fuselage. This was a major PITA. [X(]

The Kange is also the most expensive of the lot. Now, don't get me wrong
I like my plane since I got it going....but it wasn't easy.

"IF", and I don't know....but "if" they are the same as they were before, I
would get one of the other planes in the F-5 style.

The second pic is an old picture of the Kange....see the fat back fuselage ?

FBD.

I have both the Kangke is easier to build bit I think the Sportsman Aviation is prettier. I think SA has pulled theirs since it was an un-approved copy of the Direct Connection and Juno bought the rights on it. If I were to get another one (and I will) I would get the Juno RC unit.
Awsome fun planes to fly and look totally awsome in the air! Git one!

Thanks gang for all the input. I am thinking about the junorc piece. I had a F-20 Cermark with a Jett .90 Was fast but the rudder and stab FLUTTERED like crazy. I made some mods to it but no good. I since sold it. I am looking for something smaller for like a Jett 50. Thanks again!
