Default Gravity Hobby Sky Soar 2m

I saw this plane on GH's website and liked it so much that I gave it a try.

Here are the specifications:

Plane Type: 3ch (can be mod for 4ch or flaps)
Using Enviroment: outdoor
Fuselage Material: EPO
Flying Time: ≥15minutes
Charging Time: about 60 minutes
Charging Mode: balance charger
RC Distance: ≥250m
Frequency: 2.4G
Age: 14+
Battery: 7.4V 1000 mAh Li-Po
Controller Battery: 1.5V AA*8 pcs
Flying Weight: ≤470g
Wingspan: 2000mm
Wing Load: 27.4g/dm2
Fuselage Length: 750mm
Flying Speed: 7 m/s
Parts included:
Plane/Controller/9g servo*2/Lipo/Balance charger/Adapter/Parts kit(1 spare propeller,spare screws,1 screw-driver)

This RTF plane/glider have a strong brushless stock motor, molded in epo, with a clean and beautiful look.
The stock 2.4ghz tx/rx is very nice, tx with 4 ch has a special feature to range test (rx), didn't note any glitches.
I spent only 30 minutes to have the glider ready. The 2m wings reinforced with carbon rods and stainless steel have push buttons ledges that snap in in the fuse, easy method, but be sure the wing is really fixed.
Don't be afraid about the flutter effect the wings presents, they are very well reinforced.
I used one Quanum telemetry system during the test, and the 1000mah battery performed very well in it, kept the temperature in 25oC degrees all the flight and after 20 minutes (when I finally gave up flying due to the cold and winds) the battery was ok for more (I'd say at least 7 to 10 minutes if mixed, powered/gliding flight).

For $119.90 I think it is a very good option if you are looking for a 2m glider.
Gravity Hobby has all the replacements parts for very affordable price too.
