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
The plane seemed well built and functioned but it wouldn't come out of gyro mode and gyro mode couldn't fly in any wind. It would pretend to exit gyro mode until you applied throttle and then it would default back to gyro enabled. Could have been fun.
Very good airplane. Flies good.
I bought this for my 10 year old who is an intermediate RC pilot. He loves this little plane! The plane looks awesome in the air and is very agile. He told me that both modes are very stable. On 6G mode, the rudder moves with the ailerons and it has limited throws. On 3D mode, the plane really opens up! Don't be fooled by the 2 cell LiPo. This plane is very fast! Here is my son's maiden and review on this plane on his YouTube channel (Jon's RC) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2sXpwpksCOA
Bought a high performance large scale plane for my first one and quickly realized I made be mistake, as that I was only able to get it off the ground about 2 feet and then crashed it and broke mostly every major body part. I decided to look into a small cheap plane better suited for beginners. I came across this little 3D plane with flight stability and bought it. I couldn’t be happier, I’ve been able to fly it all around learning the basics of RC flighting. Can’t wait to get my big fast plane all fixed up and flight ready. I will be adding a flight stability system of some kind to it tho.
Awesome fun plane
