I bought one several months ago, but only have about 5 flights on it. It flys very light on the sticks and is very responsive, but I haven't tried any 3-D stuff with it. I am using an older Saito 80 which doesn't seem to produce the power that it should. It's adequate for sport flying, but does not have a great deal of vertical. One of our most experienced flyers took it up and was doing rolling circles with it. He said it flew very well (that was without the side force generators). I haven't flown it back to back with and without the generators, so I can't tell you much there. I'm thinking about putting a Saito 91 in it over the winter to give it the power it really needs. (the Saito is only about 3 ounces heavier than an OS 46). With more time on the plane I think I am really going to enjoy it.

I have one with an evolution .46 I love it, however, checkout for some reviews. My wing cracked at the leading and trailing edges where it joins the fuse, I was lucky it didn't fold up on me at high G's. Other flyers at RCGroups had the same problem. I had to reenforce it in both places through both wings and fix the CoG. Now I'm having fun with it.
Note: I could have sent it back to Horizon Hobbies, but I didn't want to go through the delay just to receive the similar weak wing back. Just my thoughts. Good Luck!
