Excellent Value Review by Bill

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 Review by ted

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. (Posted on 9/4/2016)
Fantastic Purchase Review by Ron

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. (Posted on 5/14/2016)
Good ARF but not impressed with control rod attachment and routing Review by William
Value
Overall
Quality
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. (Posted on 9/17/2015)
great value, great plane Review by robert
Value
Overall
Quality
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 Review by charles

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. (Posted on 12/5/2014)
better than before Review by ted

Overall

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. (Posted on 11/29/2014)

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. (Posted on 11/23/2014)

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. (Posted on 10/19/2014)

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. (Posted on 9/27/2014)
Good Bang For The Buck Review by Ron
Quality
Value
Overall
Having read other reviews I ordered this plane. Great Buy at a Great Price. Being honest, it is not the quality that you will find in a double the price ARF. However it is well constructed. It needs some extra glue in some places - especially around the engine mount box and definitely the landing gear area. The covering was placed on this plane superbly. I find no faults whatsoever with the plane - especially considering price. I do recommend beefing up the landing gear. I made a perfect landing on the maiden flight but the landing gear broke loose. The balsa was just not heavy enough nor glued properly. I've mounted an EVO 10cc gas motor and added extra weight in the tail section. Total flying weight of plane with field scale came to 5.8 lbs. It flew very nice at half throttle with this motor and a lot to spare. I am thoroughly satisfied but as I said the strength of the fuselage needs to be beefed up somewhat. After having rebuilt the landing gear I look forward to having a lot of fun with this plane - it loops, rools, figure eights etc with ease using the 10cc motor. Remember this was only maiden flight. Nice plane at less than half price. GO FOR IT! As far as pushrods - mine were stiff too but I placed a little graphite oil on the rods and worked them til they became loose. The rods did have strength. (Posted on 4/18/2014)
Great quality - great plane Review by Gerry
Value
Overall

Opened the box and was surpised by the build quaility of this product. The construction is first class,
the covering is flawless - everything went together with no surpises. It took the best part of 1 day to
built the model and install the servos, glue the wings, install the motor etc. Even the motor thrust angle
is built into the frame. The only problem I had is that the pushrods were really stiff and binding - I decided
to replace them with - much better. I also replaced the small wheels with larger ones as I fly off a grass
field.

No problem with the first flight - it takes a while to get used to it after moving from a high wing trainer, so the
plane is much more responsive and easy to perform aerobatics. 100% satisfied

one sweet flying plane for 75$, what a bargain!!! Review by Phil

Overall
This was by far the best 75.00 I've spent on a RC plane ever! The only reason I gave it 4 stars on quality was the pushrods & pushrod tubes. mine seemed to bind just a little and I replaced them with a Dubro pushrod system. but it might just be me also... I'm picky... but the covering on this thing was beautiful & flawless! went together easy and instructions were pretty good? I put a OS 40LA on it because I got a good deal on it, thinking it might not be enough power? No, it won't burn holes in the sky! but does pretty good! a 46LA would be plenty! the maiden flight blew me away! a couple of clicks of trim and this baby flew like it was on rails! tracks perfect and super easy to takeoff & land. and I love it's a tail dragger! not a trike gear fan, and the GP version of this plane is... don't pay twice as much for the GP stick when you can get this one for 75.00! GREAT JOB VALUEHOBBY!! (Posted on 9/8/2013)
