I bought this model for a friend who has recently learnt to fly. He'd had a go flying my Chrysalis and really enjpyed it. As suggested, performance is lacking compared to a balsa soarer. We actually foun it flies best just cruising around on 1/4 throttle, because the sink rate in the glide is such that it needs a good bit of lift to stay up.

Where it does shine though, is in it's durability. On the last flight of the day he strained it through a barb wire fence, which would have likely written off a balsa model. A bit of time gluing foam chunks back in and it was good as new.
