    A good plane. Easy to build. Can be turned into a very good motor-gliderby trimming the wing's cord, lightening the wing by removing the internal paper, using just one thickness of spar and using a folding prop. Then it can catch thermals.

  • Excellent Trainer

    This builds really easy if you follow the directions. I'm not a glider person, so I put a motor on it, and it performs magnificently! I have often put it up in a gentle breeze and been able to keep it aloft for 30 minutes to an hour just with a little power at a time. With a 3S 2200' I use it as a trainer for my kids and newbie pilots. It is gentle and docile, and forgiving for new pilots. It does need some speed at that weight to keep air moving over the control surfaces, but it teaches them speed management as well. Excellent plane!

  • incomplete nose piece

    The glider nose came in two pieces; should have been one connected piece. The B folds were not cut; had to make them. Other than that, everything went together well. On the first build, you really need to follow along with the video to not miss important steps. I had already built 2 small FT gliders, so knew what to watch for. Building the simple FT planes is fun and educational for children, i.e., grandkids.
