Better than expected--I'd give it another 5 Stars if I could!
My original review was on the build (which went great!) Now that the weather finally cleared up enough to fly the Guinea Pig, all I can say is: WOW! What a great flying plane! Due to installing an Eagle Tree Guardian, my servos were all set to 100% deflection, yet takeoff was smooth and easy. In flight, the Guinea Pig was as docile as a trainer or crazy aerobatic, depending on how I chose to fly it. I turned off the Guardian with the expectation that I would have to trim it out a little and it tracked straight as an arrow and completely level. MY only issue was on my last takeoff, my wheels went over a sizable crack in the pavement and I tore off the main landing gear. As I was almost off the ground, I opted to gun it and take off despite losing the gear just so I wouldn't belly skid on the pavement. I landed in some fresh snow with now additionally damage. While repairing the gear was easy, I made a couple of mods to beef it up as it seems to be the weak link in the design. I had also previously added nose wheel steering as the friction fit nose gear tended to allow the plane to "wander" quite a bit when I had done some "high speed Taxis" after I initially built it. This was a really fun plane to build and even more fun plane to fly. It's my first FT FB plane and while I already have a list of others I want to build, I will likely build another Guinea Pig with my son.
