Very nice plane if you have some flying experience.

Some of the other pusher prop / pod & boom planes will provide similar flight performance with fewer repairs (Hobbyzone Challenger) but do not glide as well as the Ventura. (probably due to the folding propellor)

Ventura is a slick plane for the money and has very few bad habits.
