My first plane (I know, not recommended)

I haven't gotten it up and flying yet, (I'm still working out how to position everything) but the only two things I can recommend to make the airframe stronger is to hot glue two pieces of a zip tie to the tops of the fuselage tabs, and insert a vertical zip tie through the fuselage for a diversity receiver (heat shrink one antenna to it, and lay he other flat and either hot glue in place or tape it down. (6"props fit. I may have to see if they cause wobbles though, there's about a 1/4" gap between the 6045 BN DALprops I have and the fuselage. XD) I'm adding a Naze32 as well as an EMAX pdb so I can utilize more electronics as I go further into this hobby.

Great flyer

I bought both the plane kit and regular power pack (I'm a senior). Plane is plenty fast enough for me. First flight was great, no trim needed. Plane wouldn't power on after the 1st flight for some reason. Rebound it, forgot to check the controls (I'm a senior). Elevator of course was reversed and straight into the ground (clunk). The only damage was 2 broken props (very impressed with it's durability. Very fun plane. We are thinking of buying several over the winter and using them for combat (maybe with the racing packs). I'll try and forget I'm a senior.
