Can you recommend the A5? I was debating if I should get one :-)
Yes i think it's a fun easy way to get into SeaPlanes.. and not a bad deal considering the battery, ESC and all servos are included.. ( tho the Tx and Rx were a waste for me , and i wish it were available without those particular parts) the printed instruction sheet is not bad but NightFlyer's video covered a lot of good stuff.. i am pretty sure with the fixes mentioned above that it's going to fly Ok out of the water.. but I hope I don't tip stall it on landing cause it's not very well sealed up.. easy to do but the paint will lift off IF i were to tape the hatch down ( for example).. only bad thing is there is no way to replace the motor without cutting it out.. the EPP used looks pretty good tho and easy to work with if it should come to that.

I like flying around Mission bay.. PM me and we can hook up over the weekend and try it together if you want so you can see it 1st hand.. i sprained my ankle while sloping last weekend so could use the help anyway.. and will put you up on a buddy box and let you fly it if you want to as well..
