TexasAggie and lowdive are right on. This thing will float for days. I have a hard time landing it. A good friend of mine also has a TwinStar. He was telling me yesterday that if you can land this plane, you can land just about any plane simply because it just keeps floating so you have to get your approach right!

And it will DEFINITELY carry some weight! Some of the aerial photography TwinStars I've seen have very large almost SLR type cameras on the front of them and carry them with no problem at all. Good stuff!

I do have a friend who does FPV with a Skywalker, though, and really likes it. I would imagine it might be a contender to a TwinStar, but the EasyStar is just in a different place IMO. Its great for what it is, and many people use it successfully, but I cringe every time I see how much the wings flex on a fellow at our local field's EasyStar whenever he flies his.
