Hi Artisan,

I haven't seen the mentioned videos yet (maybe you have some nice links for us?).
IMO the Sky Surfer glides quite slow and gentle and could even be suitable for an absolute beginner. But you can go faster, especially when you keep the motor running ...

The enclosed 1s 250mAh LiPo has 16g. I'm not sure if the enclosed Motor/ESC are designed for a 2s Lipo !?

IMO the Sky Surfer is perfect to use it "in the backyard" and wherever you wouldn't dare to use a faster, bigger or more expensive plane

When I fly the Sky Surfer, I use to climb with WOT up to approx. 80m (where it already looks kind of small and far away ) and then enjoy to glide back to my hand. Under thermal or light wind conditions, this gliding can last for some minutes - very relaxing
