It's not really that fast looking in the air probaly because it is reasonably big but also because there must be quite a bit of drag in that belly however it is exactly what I intended and it is very fun the fly around on half throttle with the occasional WOT fly-by.
I did however manage to get it locked into a spiral then it disappered behind a hill! But no damage was caused however I will be changing the way I mounted my servos - they find it easier to push themselves instead of the surface.
I think I'll be getting the RC timer motor because the 2210 doesn't give it unlimited vertical in when in the air. It has just enough to hover the plane (not enough for me )

A good plane though.
Thanks Tomhe.
I'm glad the model flew well for you, sorry to hear about the mishap but glad it's still in one piece. More power - argh argh argggh...
