I fly the Kyosho GeeBee Z with Saito .72 power. It flys great. The landings can be tricky if there is a cross wind. Other than that it flys like most sport planes.

Another option is a Gee Bee "Y". Longer tail moment, and much more stable that the Gee Bee Racers

I'm sure the Y is a little more stable. I just dont like the looks as much. If the Great Plane R-2 was out when I bought mine I would have got it.

Oh, Yes, I do fly a Gee Bee. This is the Great Planes ARF with a Saito 150.

Forget "most" of what you heard about the way Gee Bee's fly.

(notice I said "most"...)

I have a Page R2. Flying is not the problem. Taking off is not the problem. Landing is not the problem. The problem is getting the darn thing to come to a stop without nosing over and busting the fin!

I have the Page R-2. Takes off fine, flies very well but as Strat2003 says it is hard to stop without flipping over.
