The Sig Fazer is an OK sport airplane but it does not come close to the 3D performance of some of the available profiles on the market today. If you want a profile kit to build, look hard at the OMP line of kits or the Burrito.

I had a Fazer with a K&B .45 on it. It was FUN to fly, but is not in the same league with the all out 3D ships. If you're just looking for something to bash around the sky it's a good plane.

I had a Fazer. I increased the control surface area by a bunch, shortened the nose moment by an inch and a half and it hovered and flipped like a dream. Back then I didn't know how to harrier so I can't comment on that, but it was a good beginner 3D ship. My Wild hare Extra kicks its butt, though!

It's not a real stretch to increase the tail and rudder surfaces to mo generous proportions to accomodate your need to 3D. The rest is just rebalancing the plane. There is no magic to making a 3D plane.

Well I liked my Fazer. IT does all the basic manuvers very well, but don't expect it to do any radical 3D manuvears. And this all that I have left of it after a 1/3 scale extra hit me with his 28 inch prop. if the picture shows up

Fazer adventures...I made my first Fazer like a P-51, but it came together with a trainer airplane that was pulling a streamer and I got a little too close. The second Fazer I covered like the old Patty Wagstaff Extra, and it won several trophies for me at fun-flys. That was years ago, however, and fun fly planes have come a long way since then. It's still a fun, cheap plane to mess around with. When I bought my first one they were $48 for each kit. I built the second one in a weekend, start to finish. At one point I had another set of landing gear on top of the plane, shaved the top of the fin/rudder an inch, and could land upside down or right side was a blast!
