I was originally slated to review this bird, but I had a lot of problems with my sample.

The part about the wind is absolutely correct and led me to the erroneous conclusion that it was unflyable. I tried mine in what seemed to 5 mph winds and it was just all over the place. The CG was wildly off as well.

After adjusting the control throws - and yes, double checking the CG - I have a wonderful little flyer if the winds aren't blowing. It's remarkably fast and agile, but it needs a bit of power on even if you're trying to glide. The rudder loses its effectiveness if the prop isn't blowing air across it.
