Love this plane pretty easy build flys super slow
Hard to assemble
Very difficult to assemble rc plane. I have assembled about 10 larger rc models and none have been as difficult.
This plane flys great indoors
This plane flys great indoors on 180 mah 2s. I also fly it outdoors on 350 mah 3s it's a 3D machine! Hovers almost hands off my buddies thought I had a gyro in it. Indoors it flys so slow easy to handle
Good for "Indoor Flying"..........but.........
I purchased this plane specifically for indoor flying as I live in Illinois and our RC club flies in a gym during the Winter months. We've found that if you have a plane that weighs less than 80z with battery installed works quite well indoors, anything heavier just flies too fast to be aerobatic. A tad less than $100 for everything but the receiver and battery is a really good if not GREAT deal. Assembly of the plane was straight forward, only a couple of spots that could have used better verbiage or pictures. So I've had it put together and flying for a couple of weeks now and it does quite well indoors. HOWEVER, the biggest design flaw is using a wooden center wing spar and NOT a carbon fiber wing spar. The second weekend I took it to indoor flying I broke the wing spar in about three places. Flying indoors with several other planes is the air you're bound for a mid air or an evasive move that will bounce you off the hard wooden gym floor, a wooden wing spar doesn't take too well to that. The second weekend I had the Aileron Servo strip the gears, however thanks to Motion RCs great service, I had a new servo (at no cost) and was flying that weekend. In short, I would have give the plane Five (5) Stars, if they had provided a carbon fiber wing spar instead of the wood one. I wound up cutting out the wooden spar and installing a carbon fiber (small) tube and it had been very resilient. If you're going to have some mishaps, especially if you're flying indoors, I would recommend installing a carbon fiber wing spar of some type.
Easy to assemble and nice looking plane. Everything fix like it is supposed to. Only problem the paint doesn't line up on both sides of the rudder, I can get paint to line up on one side and the other side is off. Won't effect flying but looks bad. Almost finished with the build and hopefully off to fly Monday. Can't wait. I have purchased several planes from MotionRC and all have been great flyers. MotionRC is a great place to purchase planes an other RC stuff.
I will start by saying that I am 4 months into this hobby. I decided that I would like to try some 3D flying. So I bought a Piaget II. It's a great slow flyer for learning 3D. My only complaint is the hinges. Only takes a few minor bumps to tear the foam hinges. So I put a thin coat of Foam Tac across the hinges. I tried blenderm hinge tape, but it doesn't stick too well to the EPP foam. The Foam Tac seems to be doing the trick for now. Other than that, this baby is a hoot to putter around the yard, (small yard), and work on some 3D fun.
Nice plane mostly indoor not
Nice plane mostly indoor not outdoor
lots of fun for little bucks
The Piaget was a strait up easy build ! All hardware was included and worked fine.The ARF bundle came with a complete power set and servo's. Plenty of power to perform any 3D monuver you can throw at it! Don't plan on flying outdoors on windy days,about a 2-5 mile an hour is about it. Anyhow for under a hundred bucks it was a great DEAL!!
Better than expected
I am so impressed with this "kit" as stated in the other review. That is definitely the appropriate definition. However, it was really easy to build, and fun too. I took several days to complete, but could have done it much quicker. I did employ foam safe CA accelerant which worked well. Things to watch out for : Pay attention to the Round Doubler and U Reinforcement. I missed both during my assembly (landing gear) I broke one of the "plastic clips" in the servo assembly, but managed to use it anyhow. I broke one of the Aleron push rods trying to adjust it, but glued it and it works fine. Otherwise, I had no real issues. Flying is very straight forward with full rates, but I did add expo. I flew outdoors with a very mild wind, and it did fine. Large indoor area would be awesome. Simple hand launchâ€¦ and I am able to hover way longer than any plane I've ever had. It is very durable and easy to fix (if) when something does break. Lastly, I never even thought about the quality of the included electronics when I purchased mine, but I am VERY impressed with them. I assumed they would be cheap, but the motor and servos are all very smooth and feel like high quality. I would definitely buy another one of these or something else from TechOne.
