Never saw a model of one of these before so I wanted to try it out. It's pretty fun to fly, much different from flying an airplane. I also hope to get my wife interested in flying this since it's pretty durable and easy to fly.

I find ROG takeoff to be easier than handlaunching, but maybe that's just me. ROG is pretty easy if there is a light breeze.

EDIT: Still having a good time with this. I ordered up some LEDs from Hobby King and tried night flying. I used a similar design to what Sea Breeze sells on their site, but I used even MORE LEDs.. The canopy is completely visible at night. It's really neat.

AUW: 49oz.
Static test around 320 watts.

My first gas/electric conversion. My first giant scale. Before this my largest plane was a 55" Eflite T-34, so this is a big step up. So far I've been getting 9 minutes of flight and putting between 4000 and 5000mah back into the pack when charging as a 5s2p 10,000mah pack.. So I bet I can get 15-20 minutes of conservative flight. Not that I'd really want to do that, but I could!
