Not the most sturdy unit

I sent mine back because the motor mount broke before I flew it. The foam in the area of the mount was quite porous. It looks like a good indoor flyer but I would recommend reinforcing the motor mount area with foam safe CA, if you get one… Motion RC was gracious enough to accept my return at no cost to me..!!

Awesome plane, little twitchy though. 3d/6g switch is very useful

This plane is awesome with it's stabilization. Plug in the landing gear, battery and you're all set to fly It's a bit twitchy with dead zones in the sticks but otherwise it's a perfect beginner/intermediate plane

Review amendment

After complaining there was no adapter for charging the battery from EU to US configuration provided in box and after pouting for awhile then sending a harsh review, I went out and paid $4.79 for adapter plugged in battery let it charge then omg omg omg this was so fast and twitchy did I say FAST lol but after a few flights I'm getting used to switching between 6g and 3g when I get into trouble simply an awsome little plane. Couldnt stop laughing during first flight on how fast this thing is did I say FAST. Nice job

Junk!!

The plane had a glitchy electronics, and binding elevator servo the first time I flew it. I have bought multiple micro airplanes from E-flight and never had any issues.

Wew!

This baby is something to fly. Kinda boring in 6G but be very careful in 3 D as this thing can be really twitchy and sensitive to wind. For the money is one of my favorites as I can fly it in smaller yards and school play grounds. One episode that resulted in damage . Was easily repairable with some work.

OK

This plane is only OK. It comes in a carrying case box, but you have to slide the Styrofoam inner packing out to remove the plane and back in to replace it. Kind of a hassle. It came with 2 extra props and spinners. You have to remove the landing gear to put the plane in the box, but the gear goes in and out easily and stys in the plane very well. The airplane is well made and looks great. The build and components are really nice. The landing gear is strong and not bendy at all. Judging from the weight and size I predicted it would be fast, and it is. Landing speed is not super fast, but the stall characteristics of this little plane are ****, and you must keep your approach very fast to keep any control at all. The little edge lands nicely in packed sand with no tendency to nose over. The plane flies with an odd mix of twitchy over sensitivity and a sluggish lack of control. I was able to get the pitch axis pretty comfortable by moving the control rod to the outer hole of the elevator horn. While the elevator moves very little control still has authority. Loops are tight and squares are crisp. The roll axis is not so good. Rolls are sluggish. There is a dead area in the center of the controls, so at first nothing happens, then suddenly the airplane is rolling too much. With full control applied the roll rate is acceptable but not very fast. Maybe with a better transmitter this would be an awesome little plane. I don't really want to spend $200.00 to find out. The quality of the components looks excellent. I believe that it may last a long time without developing mechanical problems, unlike Horizon garbage. Unfortunately it is just not much fun to fly.
