Looks like you got a real good deal on the plane, good luck,you'll have fun

thanks alot yeah i think i did to it was 202.00 shipping included and like you all said it was packed very very well the box it came in was three times the size of the actual airplane box that I have in the photos and it had packing peanuts and boxes around the box.
I cant wait to fly it but it may be a while as i need to get the license, insurance, and training but updates will be frequent.

Yea, AMA is like 58 bucks a year, and you get there mag every month, well worth it! Club dues vary, mine's up to 100 a year now, but still that's less than 10 a month! If you break the costs down, it doesn't seem so bad

Ok yes that is not that bad at all I wonder how much my club will charge as they said I would get the discounted rate because im a student at the local university. LOL this and my motorcycle insurance and payments are going to really be a growing up process.

That plane should fly real nice, the trainers are so mellow, yet you can wring 'em out, getting ready for the next step

Hi Bill,
This trainer has just about zero dihedral so i'll leave that as is.
I broke the engine in and tonight I balanced the bird.
I like the TX that came with it because I just hold a button and it beeps like crazy and you can see the fine trim on the control surfaces moving.
After a few flights it gets converted to a tail dragger.
I have all 4 of TH trainers now and like you say you can fly them and still wring them out a bit.
The $400.00 price was good especially with that TX,ball bearing servos and the OS 65LA engine.
I'll try to get some outdoor pictures when this rain goes away

We didn't get enough snow here in the last three years to warrant buying skis.
But I live less then 1/8th of a mile from a large lake and that new bird sure would look nice coming off the water.
