I am sure it will be a good flyer, my eyes prefer a larger plane, but for a small area it would be great.
Less than 9 oz and 26" sounds good.

Let us know how it looks when you get it.
I still go through ARF's and reglue the critical joints with CA. I have found some not glued very well, one plane stiffened up quite a bit after I glued things.

Not a good time of the year to maiden flight, but there may be some good days, I hope so, I have 3 ready to go.

It looks really good.... The other forum has many pages on this plane seems like it has a few of the Horizon QC issues but overall is a really good little performer. It is amazing to see the more power group going at it too. It looks to me to be a fine performer.



I will wait a bit longer and see what you guys think!

Looks Awesome assembled but..i first had to drill out the holes so i could push the wings into the fuse and bolt them down. the plastic pieces were not glued in properly. should i hook the ailerons to the Y-harness or hook them directly to ESC AILE-AUX1 ports to take advantage of dual ail/flaperon programming to begin with ? thanks.

Wow! Nice plane but my dumb thumbs aren't that fast! I'm thinking about an EPP flat ship to try for my 3d fix (not that it will last any longer in the air, but at least it'd have a better shot at surviving the unplanned premature landing!). Good luck and I'm sure I'm not the only one who would love to see a vid once you get the power sorted!

Just call me X! (or Gary works, too.)
Another signature landing! Somebody help me find all the pieces...

I ordered a couple of these from nitroplanes... Gens ace 450mah 3S1P
and also a coupleof these from hobby king...ZIPPY Compact 500mAh 3S 35C

The Gens ace are doing great. I haven't had a chance to try the Zippy batteries yet.
