Great looking and flying Plane! and such Quality! for the money!(Posted on January 25, 2013)
This Plane showed up on the door step (fast shipping btw) and I was blown away when I opened the box! The covering looked flawless and the quality of the construction looked very well done! well worth a 119 bucks! Instructions could be a little better, but I've built many models so it wasn't that big of a challange for me. It came with quality hardware and a stout landing gear. and the best part is when you fly it! WOW! this badboy fly's better than any 3D'er I've ever flown! Just learning 3D and I feel like this is the one to learn on. so easy to take off & land, and very floaty & docile, but yet it can be fast too! it is easy to hover and doing harriers. would highly recommend. just research your setup. it like's good digital MG servo's. add to cart now! you won't regret it!

Should be in every 3D hangar(Posted on December 23, 2012)
I can't believe no one has reviewed this yet. This plane should be in the hangar of any RC pilot that's getting into 3D. The plane has an incredibly stable and docile post stall, making it the perfect plane after a foamie trainer. Hovers and harriers are super simple and harrier turns are almost completely free of wing drop tendencies. The plane does most of the spins pretty well, but the energy is a bit lower than the "exreme" models. For someone just getting into 3D, this isn't necessary a bad thing.
Sport flying and pattern aerobatics are equally easy to pull off. Just dial your rates down and do nice flowing lines with ease.
The only issue during the build is assembling the elevator halves. It takes some patience and care, but if you follow the instructions you should be fine. Also, make sure you have a long-stemmed hex driver for installing the landing gear, as the screws go deep in the bowels of the plane.
Overall, this is an amazing value for the price and should be in every beginner to intermediary 3D pilot's hangar.
