Default Zlin-50 "MAZDA"

Does anyone have one of these...?
http://www.nitroplanes.com/zlin-electric-rc-plane.html

It seems like a nice plane for 250 watt motor and decent size but they have it listed at 40+ oz flight weight.
Is that close?
If anyone has any info about flight characteristics, quality and build time I would appreciate it. Thinking about a purchase.
Thanks Joe

Default NitroPlanes experience

I don't have that plane but I can speak on my experience buying a piper cub from Nitro Planes...

Price - as you probably know they are very reasonably priced

Quality - Overall the construction was good except for minor issues with the heat shrink covering. The wing had ripples in it, that I had to fix with a hot iron and the colored pattern stuck to the outside of the covering was pealing off a little.

Instructions - Horrible; the instructions I got were worthless, you basically had to figure it out on your own. The plane was different than the instructions in several areas.

Overall; I think they are OK. They are made in China. I would buy one again if they had a plane I wanted but I may look around a bit to see if I could find a bit more quality in the covering and manual for not to much more money.
