Yup, I had this plane. It barely climbed on the recommended power system, but better with 10-cell CP1700. The 4 servos did not heat the ESC with BEC. A medium sized geared brushless setup would be best. You will notice ALOT of wing flex. Those two skinny wing joiners aren't strong enough. I lost mine while bringing it down from a big thermal, and the wings folded. I would recommend putting in flaps, so you can get braking action from the crow position. I can send instructions if you want. But then, you'll have to use a receiver pack. However, with the weight savings of switching from sp700 to brushless, the net weight change might be zero.

I had alot of fun flying it.
