Looking for opinions on this arf and if anyone is flying it off a grass field. This would be my first electric. Other suggestions are welcome. I was also considering the mini edge arf.

Goto RC-groups for hole story!

Been following that blog on RG-Groups in Electric Scale area!

They say it a great airplane but a bad dog with factory engine etc.

1. Change the motor and go brushless.
2. Take apart the gearbox and reassemble with blue locktite.
3. IF you have a choice, mod it for an outrunner and skip the gearbox.
4. Wheels are too small for grass, unless it is like a golf green.
5. If you run without LG on, consider having the aileron horns come up through the top of the wing.
6. A 3s TP PL pack or similar instead of a heavy NiMh/NiCd pack.

A couple posts on mine.

Much bigger thread going on over at RCGroups.

Oh great are the days when my takeoffs equal my landings!!!
