This plane is amazing. People underestimate how much fun you can have with a glider. My favorite part of it is the long flight time just off of an 800 mah 3s. I was throwing it off a not so steep hill and it would fly farther than you might expect. When you have a motor on it, you need very little power to keep it in the air resulting in 20+ mins flight time. I love this airplane!!! You must try it.

This is the worst plane flite test have made I think.
I begun with the plane powered by a emax 2213 motor from power pack B. When I took off it immediately flipped and slamed into the ground. I had 3 more flights with this plane each time having a bit of a hard landing and breaking a prop. (Note I did not apply any down thrust to my motor)
Then I decided to scrap the powered idea and turn it into a simple chuck glider that worked well but broke the tail off 3 times on fine landings and smashed up the nose a lot every time.
Would not recommend at all unless you want a weak and uncontrollable glider.
I prefer the explorer by a mile because it flies very nice and is a piece of cake to fly and land.
