Excellent Value (Posted on April 27, 2017)
One of the better sticks I have found. I was a little surprised to find a slight diehedral in the wing, most stick aircraft have a flat wing. No matter though, it flies and lands like it's on rails, and can do just about any maneuver you can think of. Would highly recommend as a second aircraft or for more experienced pilots. It makes for a great sport flying hot dogging around plane. The Stick design is about 30 years old, so it is tried and true.

Still flying(Posted on September 4, 2016)
I am sorry to say, I have now crashed the two models that I kept 14 times each, and am happy to say that they are still easy to repair and still fly well. they look the same as they did when they were new and weigh about the same. One exception is I extended the nose on one to eliminate the motor mount box. The other one went to a friend that has not even put it together yet.

Fantastic Purchase(Posted on May 14, 2016)
Bought this plane a second time. Having learned more about it I immediately strengthened the landing gear area buy adding approx 3/16ths piece of wood. As usual the covering was in excellent shape. I also took the dihedral out of the wing completely. Am still using the EVO 10cc motor. This combination is unbelievable on this plane. Vertical is unlimited. This plane flies like a rocket. With the dihedral removed it flies more stable to me than before. and more capable of aerobatics. The new control wires and clevis ends were much better now and work smoothly. Without the fully plastic clevis as was on my previous model I doubt that I will have any trouble as I did before with the plastic pins. It now has steel screw pins. This arf has improved the hardware and is of a higher quality than even before. I also add CA to every joint and Point that I can. In taking a little time and a few pennies you'll end up with a quality plane that you can fly for next to nothing. It is my "go - to plane" now.

Good ARF but not impressed with control rod attachment and routing(Posted on September 17, 2015)
Like the aforementioned reviews, good ARF, went together well, pretty straight assembly, until you get to the control rods, very sticky and stiff, not sure if it is the routing in the fuse or the tubes, will try the graphite and see, might just put thinner rods but really don't want to. I really did not like the clevis supplied, not a big fan of plastic and did not like the screw idea of attaching to the horn replaced with metal clevis. Also reinforced the tail gear where it is installed into the rudder. Overall good plane, just those minor things.

great value, great plane(Posted on February 21, 2015)
Maiden flight today went great. Plane flys awesome. Landing gear block should be reinforced and set up rudder with as much throw as possible (even on low rates) because rudder authority is weak. I used old Tower Hobbies .46 engine, SG5010 servos for ailerons, MG996 servos for rudder and elevator (a bit overkill, I know). I recommend this plane as a 2nd or 3rd plane. Can't comment on directions because I just expected them to be garbage, so I didn't even open them up (except to get cg). I used supplied hardware and did z-bends at servo. Also, make sure to oil control rods for tail because tube guides create too much friction. All in all a pretty straight forward build that only took 2 nights to get it ready for flight.

Nice plane for the money (Posted on December 5, 2014)
I bought this plane based on good reviews . I am overall satisfied with my purchase. This plane is a good sport plane to train on after you have mastered a slow trainer. I mounted an OS 46 AX on my plane. It is much faster than my slow trainer. The planes covering is beautiful except some of my decals started coming off after the first couple of flights . Also the servo tray came loose after a few flights. Not enough glue was used at the factory. I used 30 epoxy inside the radio compartment and engine area to beef it up. I also place some epoxy around the landing gear mount to strengthen it. I mixed some epoxy with alcohol to fuel proof the engine firewall. I didn't like or trust the plastic clevises supplied with this kit. I bought some metal Clevises to replace the cheap plastic ones. I will also change out the wheels for larger wheels that will roll on grass easier. I think this is a great plane if you add more epoxy and change out some of the hardware. It flies great and performs very well. I would purchase another one.

better than before(Posted on November 29, 2014)
I have now crashed each one seven times and they are still flying. These were bad crashes, with rebuilding the front of the plane and having the tail break off,and having the wing break in half. The landing gear still has a tendency to break off in a heavy landing but I have seen other much more expensive sticks (they cost twice as much) break off just the same way. Maybe I need to land gentler? That's what I bought them for, to learn how to land smoother and gentler.

easy repair(Posted on November 23, 2014)
I have three of these. Originally, the idea was they would not survive my rough landings, but I have been able to rebuild two after seven crashes each and so the third is still in the box.

great plane for the money(Posted on October 19, 2014)
i havehad two of these planes and just love them. i made a few mods that helped, such as larger wheels and lubing the pushrods. i also epoxied and fiberglassed the fuselage at landing gear location.

good deal(Posted on September 27, 2014)
I crashed and rebuilt two of these 4 times each, they are easy to repair. They are still flying. I replaced the bottom first 6 inches with 1/4 inch plywood. and replaced the wheels with Dubro and replaced the pushrod tubes. I can now land without knocking the wheels off. I am using a 40 size electric with 4 cell 4000 batt.
