I've had two of those Steve and it's a nice flying plane. I had a BP-21 in mine with a 3S 2150 15C pack. It's actually made by Richmodels.

here's mine from Nitro models flew O K but I had too heavy a set up so fast speed is needed. I thought I was going plenty fast tried an immelman and it rolled in. But it survived well had to build a new cowl outta foam and I've flown it since. A turnigy 3530-1100 kv and a 1500ma 3s 20c and it's heavy but it flys
