The first time flying it it took off and soared great. Overall very well made, however, upon landing at an elevation of 2 meters it nosedived into the ground, breaking the tip-off.
This plane is extremely fast, and a lot of fun to fly. But it has major issues and I can't truly recommend it for the price. The instruction manual is in very broken English which makes it very hard to read, and it's also not very specific. The biggest problem I have with this plane is that it just doesn't really work. Almost every flight I've done I've crashed it at least once, because the plane/transmitter suffers some sort of connectivity issue. This issue presented itself at various ranges, but because in many instances I lost connection and crashed while the plane was at close range, I know it's not an issue of me flying out of range of the transmitter. This issue also presented well before battery depletion, which is listed as 5-8 minutes of flight time. I've experienced the issue multiple times before even 5 minutes of flight time had elapsed, so I know it's not an issue of me depleting the battery either. Now the thing is that this issue never presented itself during my preflight checks on the ground, and obviously I can't get my money back because of this company's warranty/return policy after having flown it and experienced multiple crashes while trying to troubleshoot. I would seriously warn anyone from purchasing this model, because it has a serious flaw that will cause it to break and you will waste your money. If you do still decide to purchase this model, I would recommend also purchasing a bottle of foam-cure glue to fix it when it inevitably breaks.
Flew for 30 minutes. Went 6G to 3D and plane nosedived immediately. Ordered new fuselage and wing to repair the damage and it didn't fly for 5 seconds before it failed again. Huge waste of money due to poor durability.
Nice plane easy to fly nose heavy quick , fast have to keep your eyes on it, but as long as you keep it a reasonable distance high has good response and allows you to practice loops barrel rolls and knife edges , has plenty of power , not so bad in a little wind, keeps you on your toes
You guys are the best
Plane was doing well in 6G. When I switched to 3D the plane went crazy and went nose first into the ground! It was never the same again. The manual is difficult to understand. You really should recalibrate gyros before flight but it doesn’t say to do this. When you switch to 3d the elevator flies up for about a second! I thought this would be a good intermediate plane but it was a big disappointment!
Short lived plane, Had been flying for a while was comfortable with flying it, was slowly decending toward the ground and all of a sudden the plane pitched straight down in to the ground and completely destroyed it.
I had been flying a Champ RTF until I decide to branch out and buy a better plane. This is a great option. I love the 3D mode and giro, great for all types of pilots. I do wish it had the option for a clear canopy though.
This plane literally fly like a mini extra in 6g the plane can be flown by a somewhat beginner because it does have a tendency to fly fast transmitter is the bees knees for what you get the controls are really sensitive in 3D mode so be ready for a mini extra
