I'm curious to know how well this plane will perform as a warmliner/thermaller from a schoolyard setting. My twin brother has been out of this hobby for a few years, and just got bitten by the RC bug again.

I thought it might make a nice birthday present for him.
I measured the firewall and it's 31.5mm the canopy erea holds a 3s 2700mah Lipo no prob. Thermaling might be challenging at that wing loading, but as warm/hot liner it should be lots of fun. Hope this helps.
