It is a fantastic flyer - but NOT a beginner model. I assume you have glow/gas experience. I am not saying that it is difficult to fly, but it is not a trainer.

The full flap slow fly-by's are a site to behold (use the rudder as the speeds drop off) the flaps blank the ailerons pretty significantly but the rudder remains effective.

Here is a review that I did...

yes I have glow/gas experience. Lipo tech is what I'm short of.
