What an amazing plane!! I finally had success flying, and I am a total beginner. It is really slow on a 1500 mah 2s Lipo and the power pack B, but for me that was good. I like the ft 22 because of the prop placement, but I like the old speedster because the rudder and the slowness. I you are a beginner, get this plane! It will not be a let down! I also love how this looks - which is why I made in the first place! Good job designing this Josh!
