It looks great and my kids were really excited about "Dusty." The plane is tall and is not very stable. It's fun for acrobatics but it doesn't glide well at all. The landing gear is more of a novelty...they were gone after the first couple landings and haven't been back on since. I prefer the flight characteristics since I poked a hole in the battery compartment and secured the battery to the underside, closer to the wing (plus it isn't such a pain to power on/off). Overall it is fun but I'm probably moving my electronics into another plane soon.

I just had the maiden flight. I had struggled with the paper wheels and landing gear all build. After loosing a wheel on take-off, I glided it back to earth with no real problems. On the second launch, however, I couldn’t get it trimmed, so I lost control of it and it crashed, ripping the wings off. It went well together as a build, though I had servos come loose mid-build. The biggest weakness is where the leading edge of the wing attaches to the fuselage. That part is so weak, that it ripped as I slid in the wing. Re-design the wing riots, please!

Update: I moved on to a Bloody Baron and got the hang of 4 channel flying. It’s NOT a good first 4 channel: get a Simple Scout. Now, I can appreciate the full length ailerons, snappy rolls, strong performance in medium wind and overall playfulness. It has quickly risen to the top of my FT planes and I love flying it!
