RE: Park Zone's Icon A5
I got a chance to fly my flying buddy's Icon. I was impressed. Sure, it does wag (dutch roll) a bit, but it doesn't affect the handling at all. In fact, many "scale" r/c Corsairs, and even the full scale Corsair, had the same "wagging" characteristic.
Enough about the unimportant wag. The plane flies great. Plenty of power, takes off nicely even when the water is a bit choppy. The 3-blade prop does howl a bit, though it's no big deal. I was impressed enough with the plane that I bought the PNP version. Still waiting on it to arrive.
I'd like to thank TimBle for the head's up on the inner seam. This is electricity we're dealing with, and the last time I checked water and electricity doesn't go well together.
Overall, I think the plane is well worth the money.
