Just wanted to give another endorsement for an awesome airplane. I got one from Nitro Planes for $79 on sale and maidened it tonight. I added flaps and reinforced the NLG strut like what was done earlier in this thread, but otherwise bone stock with 2200mah packs.

Fantastic! It's aerobatic enough to do loops, rolls, inverted, and it spins really well, but the best thing about it is how scale it looks in the air. I spent an entire pack shooting touch-n-goes, greasing it in on the mains and holding the nose gear off until the speed bleeds down. It just looks amazing.

I did find that it needed alot of up trim to fly level, and there is alot of pitch-up with flaps - going to have to work on mixes for that.

All in all, this is the best value I've found in R/C - $79 for a plug-and-play ARF that flies this well and looks this good is incredible. Anyone who's on the fence about it should just go get one! You'll be happy you did.
