There is a ton of discussion on it. It's spelled Decathlon.

Check the ARF forum. Opinions go both ways. Opinions vary more on flight charactoristics than build quality as the quality is rather good. (minus some of the hardware)
Decathlons/Citabria's have always apealed to me. I want to like them. In the end I want something more sporty.
I personally think it's too heavy to be anything other than an OK sport plane. It's also one of the hardest planes to keep straight on the runway.

The Phoenix Models and Seagull Models Decathlon ARFs are both considering really good values for the money. Thunder Tiger and Global Hobbies also have nice Decathlon ARFs available at a reasonable price, although both are more than the first two mentioned.

Most of the Decathlon ARFs on the market are going to fly in a pretty scale manner unless you grossly overpower them. They all weigh in at 7 to 7.5 lbs. for a .40 to .46-sized ARF.

Good luck, and good shopping!
