After several flights including a bad hand launch and a tree landing I have to say this is one of the most resilient planes I have even had. Once I learned where the weak points in the fusey, the tail, and the wing they were reinforced with epoxy and CF rods and the plane is now built like a tank. I can get 5 to 6 min flights out of a 2200 30C running a 60% throttle. Trims out fine to where it can fly hands off. I don't run gear so belly landings are the norm. First belly landing took the cannon off so I covered the area with sticky tape and did the same around the wing area. One more suggestion is to put a 1/2 inch piece of CF rod thru the nose for better ventilation. This is my first EDF graduating from Ultra Mini sticks and really enjoy the plane. Don't be afraid to get one. Nitroplanes had one for $130 which included 40a esc's and all servos. I am planning on buying another. If you got any more questions let me know....
