If you don't want a high wing trainer, get it.

They are very well thought out. With all the stuff on it, it fly's really slow, comes in at a crawl, and doesn't have any ability to go upside down. It just doesn't have the power and too much drag. (OK, you can FORCE it to, but it has to be put into a dive to get any speed).

Once you're bored doing circuits, take off the speed brakes on the landing gear, install a servo for the flaps, (or take them to neutral), install a 10-6 or 10-7 2 bladed prop, and the thing will scoot along pretty good, being able to do loops and rolls without a problem.

Last, remove the wing extensions or whatever they call them. you'll get a bit more performance out of the airframe.

They are build out of a balsa, and built well. They can be repaired if you are willing, and you shouldn't need to be ordering parts all the time.

Being at the altitude you're at, you will probably need to remove the stops that are installed on the needle valves to get more adjustment out of it. The high speed needle is limited to 3/4 of a turn adjustment.

I was mowing the field Tuesday, and later two of these came to fly. One was a .46 powered with a three blade prop, good second plane, the other had a .60 and flew like a scared cat.

Good looking planes.

(does every club have two?)
I've seen the the one with the OS 0.61fx fly and it flies like a dream, but if any of you plan on doing this, beef up the firewall. I talked with the guy and he had beffed up the firewall and fiberglassed it. But personally, i'd love to fly the one with the 0.61 better than the 0.46.
