Default Giant Scale Planes 109" Giles

I am curious if anyone has any experience with the GSP 109" Giles? Comments good or bad based on first hand experience would be appreciated.

I do relize that GSP is not an Aeroworks, Carden, 3W etc.

Thanks Budman.

Very nice looking plane! You did a great job finishing the plane.

What servos are you using?

Do you know the weight of the plane?

What type of flying do you mostly do? Sport, IMAC, 3D?

How was the finish on the plane?

Thanks for your time in answering these questions.

I am using Hitec 5645 on ailerons, 5945 on elevators and 2 giant Hitec digitals on rudder, I mostly sport fly, fuse construction was nice, was disappointed with wing sheeting as some of it was hard balsa and some was soft balsa. I have not weighed plane but I would guess around 37 lbs. overall I am happy with the planes.
Hope this helps.

Donald...
