$199!!!!??? OK, must not get distracted....
Anyway, I've seen a couple of these in action. I think it's a plane you definitely don't want to skimp on the electronics in it. I would check if there are minimum torque specs for the servos. I can't say how tough it would be to fly, but you'll definitely want a good clear place to fly it, and a nice long runway. I've seen it fly off the hard packed dirt runway at one of the clubs i fly at. It's around 450' long, and can use quite a bit of it, especially if you don't get the landing set up just so. Wish I could help more in the flight qualities, but I don't have one yet. At that price, though... Gotta go search now!
Edit: Just checked Horizon Hobby. Their new low price is $280. Do you mind if I ask where you found it at that price?
