So far I love it. At the end of the battery it has nearly as much power as the original did at the start with a 5043 prop. The Eflite 150mah batts give plenty of flight time- much more than I expected. If there's any negative I think that the old one MIGHT have handled the wind a little better, maybe because it was nose heavy.

I don't think I'll go back to big planes (except my Stryker). I loved being able to fly however I wanted in the park, and the small crashes didn't even leave a scratch. I also liked not having to worry so much about landing, which was always on the back of my mind when flying the full size Corsair. All it needs now is increased aileron throw, to be done now.
For more aileron throw for the sukhoi xp just move the aileron connecting wire to the inner hole on the bell crank. Watch out for aileron jams at full aileron throws (they happen sometimes), if that happens then set the max throw on the servo with your TX (DX6i right? ) to less than 100%.
