Piccole Ali .60 size Reggiane RE 2005 Sagittario
Well folks, here is my next ARF build in electric power, a .60 size Reggiane 2005 Sagittario offered by Piccole Ali out of Venice, Italy.

I decided to purchase this model after seeing a thread in the Fuel Warbirds section here on RC Groups. After some conversation with a nice gentleman from Piccole Ali, named Stelvio, the money was sent and the parcel was shipped. A week and a half later, it arrived.
The parcel was shipped post and arrived in unmolested condition. Piccole Ali took the time and care in double boxing the the model box (in essence, triple boxed) to ensure it arrive in the condition it did. Upon opening the 3 boxes to finally unveil the model parts, I noted that all the parts were securely tape to the inside of the box to ensure nothing got banged around inside.
I removed the packaging to inspect each part: 2 wing halves, 2 horizontal stabs, the fuselage, the cowl, the rudder, and all the small bits & pieces and hardware.
First impressions upon looking at the individual parts and the fiberglass fuselage, the model reminds me of a CMP model. although the model is listed as a Piccole Ali exclusive, I wonder if it may have been produced by CMP.
One thing that impressed me was the huge servo tray inside the fiberglass fuse; you can put just about anything you want in there.
