    I have all 3 sizes of Scouts and this one is easily my favorite. Flys nice and slow at 1/2 throttle just how I enjoy flying. I used the XL electronic pack and has plenty of power. Super nice take offs and landing. I had to use a heavy 4000mah 3s to balance it and get 11-12 minute flights. One thing, it’s big and doesn’t disassemble for transport so something to keep in mind.

    I just received my FT Simple Scout XL MKR2 This kit uses a different foam than the original XL. When you look at the information you will see brown and now white coating. this is OK. The new white board is 1/16" thicker and has that waxy coating.
