Great little flying wing. I had to take off and reposition the plywood motor mount as it was not installed perfectly straight. Then I had to cut away about 1/2 inch of the trailing edge of the wing on each side because there was not enough area for prop clearance. I contacted the retailer who confirmed all there other kits had the same problem with the prop clearance. They promptly called the manufacturer to let them know about the problem.

All that being said. It flies wonderfully. Will even handle a little breeze. The only other change I made was to replace the control horns. The ones supplied simply do not have enough throw needed for this wing....It balanced perfectly with a 610 m.a. 2 cell bat. Flight time is about 10 min. At WOT it only uses around 5 amp. Flies great in a small area. Could easily fly in a large yard or very small field.

Don't have a way to take any video, but it flys great fast or slow. Loops and rolls are done easily (with different control horns).
