I bought the RTF with the stiffer wings for about $100.00 + $80.00 shipping. I've been struggling with getting this plane flyable. Have had about 3 flights but struggle with control.

I had to install a new motor, the one that came with it was defective. Also two defective servos replaced. Replaced the weak esc that came with it. The aileron and flap throws are insufficient. I'm going to carve them off, trim and make some proper hinges for ailerons and flaps. Also having trouble getting the prop to stop windmilling. Soft brake is apparently not enough, so I'll try medium. Not sure if I should test again without the windmilling before rebuilding the ailerons and flaps. Just not a whole lot of room for throw with the way the hinges are set up.

Anyone who has it controlling well and can give me their throw specs would be appreciated.

Certainly a good looking plane an appears to have a nice glide. Yes the retract is cool.

Thanks,
