It's a nice flying plane, not the best as far as profiles go because it is a little heavy and snaps at low speeds with too much elevator input. I used mine for quite a while, learned how to hover and do rollers with it. Control throws are all you can get, balance it on the CG, and use a strong 46 ball bearing engine for good performance. I ended up dorking mine and gave it to someone at the field, who fixed it and now has a 60 for power. Definitely a strong performer now! The wing and tail wood are a little soft so be careful with the tail. The wing will take the abuse of nearly anything you can throw at it. Don't fly it too fast though; I fluttered an elevator half off after a particularly impressive full power inverted spin. I landed it and built another elevator and flew it for a while longer.

i have the same one only the extra version
only difference is color
i have a 46 fx on mine and it is a great plane
will do just about anything u want. vertical is great
hovering is not the best. i think it is very fun but dont put a big 61 in it too heavy and will flutter
very slow flying plane dont fly it fast the alierons will flutter

6 oz tank and 15 minutes flights i am very easy on the throttle full on 1-2 uplines per flight. i use the power for hovering as i keep it very low and like the pull out power. i have my rudder and elevator servo mounted in the fuse as this was ARC version. It a good knock around fun fly but i perfer the morris kits i have over this one but i like my fun flys on the cloudy days....
