Before I say anything about this plane i want to say it is NOT for beginners. Its is very hard to control, it looses altitude when it gets a chance to, and u can't make aileron turns because it looses altitude so you either need to master that or do rudder turns. Overall, it's a great 3D plane. But do not attempt to do any 3D flying with only 2 cells, it will not have enough thrust, I am using an outrunner motor and one more thing to worry about is get a speed controller that is made for low rpm motors like the new version of Castle Creations Phoenix 25. We used the older version and it melted so the plane crashed. And speaking of crashes, this plane is VERY easy to fix even though its wood and there are lots of replacement parts for it, like a new fiberglass cowling is 13$ at AJ hobby. SO crash all you want I'm kidding. The plane also needs minimal wind, but then again so does every plane if you are going to get this kit i recommend you practice on a trainer unless you have experience, in which case you will enjoy it a lot

a grear setup is:

AXI 2212/32 outrunner
Phoenix 25 low rpm BL/ESC
Tunderpower 3s 1320mah lipo pack
bluebird servos for the rudder and elevator
hitec (higher tourque) on the ailerons
and the radio we are using is a JR XF421 radio and its probably the best for what it costs.

3d palnes

Glad to here your having a hoot with the plane. Just a bit of advise. when doing an airleron turn give a bit of opposite rudder and it shouldnt loose any altitude. like if turning left using airlerons give it a bit of right rudder, it will bring the nose up and the plane should turn and gain altitude. Add in a bit of up elevator at the same time if you want to make a good sharp turn. Have fun man!!! How does she fly inverted??

There's like no differnce between flying rig t side up or inverted it hangs perfectly but not for long, it can hang at 75% throttle so if i need to go up theres always that extra 25% to pull it up
