I have one.

Power is a DC1717, 11 to 1 box and an 11 x 4.7 ARC prop. 3 560mah LiPo's and light weight gear. Nelson Lite Film (SoLite).

Empty weight was 4.7oz. All up is 6.7. This is 2.5oz per sq.ft.

The DC1717 has much less power than the GWS they spec., but, is also much lighter.

Will almost hover! It is great fun, rugged, easy to build and easily can be flown inside the base lines of a little league baseball field.

About 10 mph cruise and 5 mph powered slow flight.

My favorite move is to go straight up at half throttle, just as it slows to start a stall give full up and it rotates on it's wing for a 0 foot diameter loop.

Very easy to fly.

Goldscallop are nice folks to do business with. Be sure and check out their vacuum former box kits!
