Beautiful flying plane I have
Beautiful flying plane I have one Pepe and that's the landing gear after two or three successful Landings it retracts start messing up one won't come down one won't go up other than that I give it 4 stars
Just maiden this plane on 5s and a 10x10 prop, great flyer! Pay attention to details on assembly and push battery all the way to the front, it'll fly and land very well. I plan on putting in 6s someday, should be fun!
Didnt like it at all

NOT for beginners
Be prepared, this is a 'twitchy' fast plane. Pros: Easy to build for first flight Instructions are ok (****** pics) Nicely build with a powerful motor Great value for money Sounds great on fly byes Cons: Not for beginners. I have flown plains in the past and this thing is particular Need smooth pavement for take off (Don't bother with grass) The servo linkage pieces are a joke in quality, broke 3 just making fine adjustments. Cockpit is a little crowded for electronics Tires are poor quality
Smooth Flying Racing Plane
Great Flying Plane !! Did have to replace the retracts, the originals would work when they wanted to, not when I wanted them to. Made a couple of belly landings. Now flying the plane on a 3300mha 5 cell 40C with a 2" e-spinner and a 10x10e prop on stock motor and ESC. Still balances well with the larger battery. Flies on rails, tracks smoothly around the pylons. Love landing fast. I scare everyone with a high steep approach, full flaps, level out at 2 feet and roll it down the runway. I get lots of comments on speed and insane landings. Have not put it on the radar yet. RC Groups threads say it does 120-130mph on same setup. I don't think it is that fast, probably more like 100-110mph. Fun fun fun plane to fly. I will buy the Voodoo next.
For Avanced Pilots on paved runway
The battery compartment is very tight. I had to carve some of the canopy away to get the battery in. Difficult to take off on relatively short grass. The plane noses over very easily unless the grass is very short. Too much power on take off tesults in a torque roll. Once in the air it flies grear, very quick. I used flaps on landing . On most landings ( on grass ) it would nose over.
Looks good, flies very well, and the kit was superb. One point: The 4 blade prop was appallingly badly made ( as was a replacement I ordered ) and needed lots of work to balance and rework center hole. I am actually running 2 ( yes 2 at the same time ) 11x8E APC props and that works very well ( and costs less if you ding them ) Flies well on a 3 cell 2200 35c battery. For me it lands well if you yaw it to fractionally to the left ( its the right wing that stalls first ) as the you get close to wheels touching.
Best prop plane I've ever owned.
Anyone who says this is not a good plane or gives it a negative review doesn't know how to fly rc. Out of the box with a 4s 2500 30c all stock it was already screaming. I'm guessing the description is correct at about 85mph. I then ordered the 12x12 prop from motion rc, trimmed a 1/2 inch on each side, balanced it, and was able to keep the same spinner after carving away at some areas. It's definitely hitting 115 now if not more. Gonna see if they have a 3000mah 50c to throw in there. Originally with stock prop I was getting an amazing 6:30 flight time with 25% battery left (although I only had full throttle about half the time). Now with 2 bladed prop I'm getting about 4:30 with 25% left; still impressive. Literally unlimited vertical. It won't stall at full throttle until it goes out of sight. Only one minor downside to this airplane and that's that there is no suspension on the gear. So just have good landings every time lol. Great job on this plane. I am truly amazed. Freezing's f15 is amazing too, just to throw that out there. Motion rc is my go to now.
