The flatout series are good flying planes. The problem is the foam is so brittle. Never try to land on grass or you rip the gear off(and half the plane) even with a gentle landing. Don't worry after a few flights you will have so much CA on the plane that it will be plastic. Mine flew well but only lasted about 10 flights before I gave up on it. Tower just had a deal for $19.99. Wonder why? If they just used a better foam that didn't crack so easily they would be great.

I love my reflection. It is covered in Foamsafe CA from many fixes. The vertical part of the fuse has been reinforced at the front and back of the wings from not withstanding grass landings. However, I can set it down on grass now without damage, but it will nose over. I would like to pick up a new one for 19.99 as stated so that once I have beaten this one up to the point of no return, I can set up on a new one. Hopefully by then, my skill will be such that it is less likely it will get damaged. I am running an eflite 370 outrunner on 2 cell 800ma lipos and it flys for about 10-12 minutes. Not tons of power, but will hover and pull out, especially in the first 5 minutes of flight. The last 5 minutes dont have quite the same power. I have not flown any other foamies so I can't give a comparison. Hand launches fine and I am able to catch it. Cant hover and pick it out of the air yet. It has been a good plane to learn with and practice.

I have fun with mine,when the wind is down,I fly off long grass and have found lots of up elevator on landing slows it enough to not be damaged.I power mine with an Axi 2234,12*6 prop.
