Default ZY Hobby Super Decathlon - thoughts?

I'm looking for a nice Super Decathlon or Xtreame Decathlon and ran across the 72" Super Decathlon from ZYHobby. It looks like a balsa/ply build up of good quality. Has anyone has any experience dealing with this company? Also, can anyone recommend a good Decathlon in the .70-.90 four stroke range?

Here is the link. Any advice would be welcomed.

I have a ZY Hobby Decathlon and I love it. I have about 20 flights on mine. I powered it with an OS .55 AX and its a perfect powerplant for it and it fits entirely in the cowl. It builds easy and looks great and scale in the air.

Thanks jay cam! Is the cowl big enough to mount an Os .90 surpass 4 stroke and be fully enclosed? Mounting inverted is a possibility too - please let me know!!
