Default Model Tech Magic ARF

I have graduated from a trainer and can fly it proficiently. I am now thinking about a second plane and wondering how I would do with the Model Tech Magic ARF with a Tower Hobbies .46 in the nose. How does it fly? Is it a good second plane? Thanks in advance.

I wrote an article on it a couple months ago in the review forum. Check it out there so I don't have to re-type it.

I think it would make a pretty good second plane. It is very stable and flys very nice. The only thing I don't like about it is the skid on the tail instead of a tail wheel, but they were trying to save weight. I have the .46 FX in it and it flys great, hovers, does anything you want. the only thing I didn't like about the flight on it was it was too stable, so I put a bunch of lead on the tail and made it unstable. It is getting closer to doing what I want. You will like it. I did have to use a micro servo on the throttle though to get the radio and all in, it is tight.

I've never built or flown one, but my home field is crawling with them, at least 6 that I know of. So it must be good for something

Oh, I will say that they are built very lightly. That's a good thing for flight performance of course. But they sure to turn in to lots of itty bitty bits in a hurry when things go wrong.
