cool plane if you have room to land it

I had a heavy passer x that was fantastic for the price. In a straight line its glide ratio was amazing. Ended up losing it in the lee side of a 1000 ft ridge but had a lot of fun with before that. You can shove a carbon tube through the balsa ribs all the way up to the servos as a super stiff wing joiner.
I found those ailerons too little to be effective as spoilerons, and the thing was a real challenge to land in a tight spot, requiring hard 360s at 5-10 feet. If I ever got another (and I may) I'd rig either flaps or spoilers into the wing.
